Frederick - Lionni

Frederick the mouse and his friend are getting ready for the winter, or is it just them getting ready? Frederick assures them he is putting away warm summer days, sunshine and fun for the cold winter looming ahead. His friends skeptical continue to ready themselves. Finally winter arrives and when the time is right Frederick shows them his stores from summer that encourage his friends through the cold days.
The book is cute but the story seems to be leaning on encouraging laziness as it raises Frederick up for his magical, I guess you could say abilities to collect feelings from summer. Overall it was a good book though.
