Vocabulary: Dramatization: Acting out a story. The family he lives with screams when they see him and chase him with a broom. Cups, saucers, and spoons were flying in all directions. Record their responses on a chart like the one below: Possible answers include: Real Mouse—soft body, runs by itself; Toy Mouse—hard body, has to be wound up. He learns of a magical lizard that could grant his wishes.

Alexander asked the wind-up mouse why the family liked him. He found yellow pebbles and blue pebbles and yellow pebbles - but not one tiny purple pebble. The illustrations just kind of blended together and did not enhance the text. Awarded with a Caldecott honor, this and other children's titles by Leo Lionni are noted for being both playful and dealing responsibly with serious themes.

Ask the children to fill in the blank, write their response and then ask the child to draw a picture of what they would like to become. Although Alexander is jealous that the family loves Willie and not him, Alexander comes to love Willie, too. Art Cut the lizard out of white construction paper or watercolor paper. The wish could only be granted if he brought the lizard a purple pebble though.
