Storyboard Text

  • TEXT
  • MAKING CONNECTIONS
  • "I want you to remember that if you ever need my help I'd be more than glad to give it!"
  • "How could that little mouse ever help me? Little as he is, he's all heart. I love him, and I'll miss him terribly."
  • TEXT
  • Please let me go. One day I will repay you!
  • HA, HA, HA! How could you, a tiny mouse, ever help me?!
  • Amos claims that if Boris ever needs his help that he would be glad to give it. Boris does not believe that the little mouse would ever be able to help him because he is so tiny but he loved him anyway.
  • TEXT
  • In the Aesop fable, "The Lion and the Mouse", a mouse gets captured by a lion. The mouse pleads to be let go and tells the lion he will help him one day. The lion laughs so hard that the mouse escapes. The next day, the lion is captured in a net and the mouse nibbles the net to free the lion. The lion realizes he was foolish for ridiculing the mouse for being small.
