      The story of Jumping Mouse takes place in a brush near a great river. The mouse dreamed and loved to hear stories at night about the far-off land, but he doesn’t know how to get there.
      The mouse went to find the far-off land in the morning. He met a frog named “Magic Frog”. Magic frog named mouse “Jumping Mouse”, and he gave him legs like a jackrabbit for his journey. Magic Frog & Jumping Mouse went to search for the far-off land. He felt exhausted from his journey. Jumping Mouse met a fat mouse that lived under a berry bush. Jumping Mouse was rested and strond enough to begin his journey again. All they did was sleep and eat. He saw his reflection and he was Fat. The mouse warned Jumping Mouse to stay on one of the stream because of the snake. He saw a branch stuck in the stream and ran fast to warn his friend but it was too late.
      Jumping Mouse met a bison and he was dying. He had drank some poison and couldn’t see. Jumping Mouse named him Eyes-of-a-Mouse. Soon the bison could see again. He had given the bison is own sight. The bison thanked him and brought him to the mountains. He dug a hole to rest in. The cool breezes woke him up, and soon he felt fur under his paws.
      Jumping Mouse was scared because he smelled wolf. The wolf thought he was dying because he could no longer smell. He named the wolf “Nose-of-a-Mouse”. He had also given up his smell, so the wolf could survive. Since, Jumping Mouse gave the wolf his smell, the wolf took him to the far-off land.
      Jumping Mouse soon dug a hole and went to sleep fast. He started to cry because he couldn’t see nor smell, and was thinking how he would survive in the far-off land? Then Magic Frog appeared.
      In conclusion, Magic Frog told Jumping Mouse to jump, then as he jumped Magic Frog turned him into an eagle. He could see and smell again. Magic Frog told the eagle that he will live in the far-off land forever. I can learn from this story that always BE unselfish than selfish and don’t stop til’ your there!

         In the story “The Story Of Jumping Mouse” takes place in the desert,plains,mountains and the far-off land. Jumping Mouse is a mouse that is given a power to have powerful legs. Jumping Mouse heard stories of the Far-off land and wants to go there.

         Mouse heard stories of the Far-off land,which made Jumping Mouse dream about the Far-off land and he wants to go there. Later on Jumping Mouse met a frog that gave him powerful legs, the name Jumping Mouse and helped him through the river. He met a fat mouse that let him rest and eat. A snake had lived on the other side of the river, but a branch broke off, a cause of the snake coming over and eating the fat mouse. Jumping Mouse is sad that the Fat Mouse got eaten.

        &nsp;At the plains, Jumping Mouse met a bison that was going to die because he is blind. Jumping Mouse gave the bison his eye sight, but now the mouse can’t see anymore. The effect of the bison being happy that he got his eye sight back is the bison guiding the mouse through the plains and to the mountains.

         At the mountains, Jumping Mouse met a wolf, that had lost his smell and would surely die. Jumping Mouse was very kind to give his sense of smell to the wolf. The wolf was very glad of what Jumping Mouse did and lead him through the mountains. Jumping Mouse dug a hole to sleep. When he woke up, he had gotten to his destination. Jumping Mouse is sad because now he can’t see or smell. Magic Frog came and told Jumping Mouse to jump. He did as he was told and he turned into an eagle.

         The conflict was resolved when Jumping Mouse wasn’t selfish to the animalswhich made the animals guide him closer to the far-off land. I learned that being generous and unslefish can help you achieve your dreams or goals.

        In the begining, a young mouse dreams of going to the far-off-land because of all the stories the old ones told. But they warned young mouse not to go, but he left the next morning when the sun came came up.

        Young mouse starts his journey. On his journey the first one he runs into is magic frog. Young mouse couldn’t cross the river, so magic frog gave him legs like a kangaroo so he could jump across. Magic frog now named him jumping mouse.

        The second one jumping mouse ran into was fat mouse. Fat mouse allowed him to sleep in his home and also told him that there was a snake on the other side. When jumping mouse was going to leave he tryed to hurry and get fat mouise so he wouldn’t get eaten by the snake. But he was to late. Fat mouse was eaten by the snake for breakfast.

        The third one he met was a bison that could not see because he drank from a poisoned stream.The jumping mouse felt sorry for the bison. Soon jumping mouse gave him the sence of sight. The bison could now ssee again.

        The last animal he meets is wolf. Wolf lost his sence of smell. So jumping mouse gave him the sence of smell. Wolf guided him to the far-off-land.

        In the end jumping mouse reached the far-off-land, and cried. Then magic frog turned him into a eagle. Now he had sight annd smell. He lived there in the far-off-land flying peacfully. What I learned is to keep trying and never give up on your dreams or goals. Also to not be selfish

        “The Story of Jumping Mouse,” tells of a mouse who who got powers & uses them to help others during his journey to fulfill his dreams. Jumping Mouse drempt of going to the far-off-land afte rhis family told stories of it. On his way to the far-off-land he gains powers from a Magic Frog and encounters soem hopeless animals in need. With the powers he gains from Magic Frog he gives up some important things but in the end it pays

        When he got stuck by the river he met Magic Frog who named him Jumping Mouse and he helped him cross. As he starts his journy again he reaches the desert and meets a fat mouse whos house sleeps in for the night. The fat mouse worned Jumping Mouse about the a snake but told him it was safe because the snake couldn’t cross the river. But due to a log falling across therefore he was able to eat the fat mouse. Luckily, Jumping Mouse was able to escape. So he started off again.

        He reached the grassy plain and chose to stop for a while. He meets thew bison when he rests on what he thinks is a bolder. When the bison tells him that he is dying because he can’t see, Jumping Mouse starts to feel bad for him. In result of he decides to help the bison. Jumping Mouse names him Eyes-of-a-Mouse and the bison began to see again but Jumping Mouse became blind. Thanking him the bison helps Jumping Mouse get to the end of the plains.

        As he reached the mountains he begins to become tried again & digs a hole to sleep in. When he wake s up he is alarmed to see a wolf right at the tip of his nose. He worked up enough nurve to say hi to the stranger. As the wolf explained his condition of not being able to smell, Jumping Mouse chooses to help. He names the wolf Nose-of-a-Mouse & give the wolf his own smell. In return for his favor the wolf guides Jumping Mouse through the mountains.

        Jumping Mouse fianlly reaches his destination but he couldn’t of doen without the help of some animals he meets along the way. Using kindness and inselfishness Jumpign Mouse became an Eagle in teh end, in return for helping those animals. The leason to learn is sometimes we are fortunate enough to have what others don’t & we should not be selfish. We have to give in order to recieve.

         “The story of Jumping Mouse” takes place in the grassy plains. Jumping Mouse was very unselfish and kind. The problem is that he’s not where he wants to be.
         Mouse always dreamt ofgoing to the far-off land because it seemed like a beautiful place. The next morning, the mouse got up early to find the far-off land. But, the mouse couldn’t cross the river so basically he couldn’t start his journey. As soon as a frog heard that mouse couldn’t cross the river, the frog introduced himself and said his name is Magic Frog. Just as Magic Frog was done talking, he started to ask the mouse why he couldn’t cross the river. Mouse said because he has short legs so, Magic Frog will name the mouse Jumping Mouse and the mouse started to grow long legs like a jackrabbit.      Now this is where the journey begins. While on the way to find the far-off land, Jumping Mouse met a fat mouse. Jumping Mouse told the fat mouse about how he got long legs to travel to the far-off land but the fat mouse didn’t care. The fat mouse told Jumping Mouse it’s not worth it to find the far-off land because when the fat mouse had a dream, he all he ever found was a desert. But that still didn’t make Jumping Mouse stop searching for the far-off land. Jumping Mouse felt exhausted becayse he went searching for the far-off land day and night non-stop. So, Jumping Mouse decided to rest at the fat mouse’s place for a night.
         The next day, Jumping Mouse got up and left the place. On the way to the far-off land, Jumping Mouse meets some animals. One of them was a bison. The bison couldn’t see because he drank poisioned water from the stream. Jumping Mouse wanted to give his sight to the bison and named the bison Eyes-of-a-Mouse. The second animal he met while on his journey was a fox who couldn’t smell because he misused it and lost it. Jumping Mouse got saddend by his story so gave the fox his sense of smell and named the fox Nose-of-a-Mouse. Now, the mouse couldn’t see or hear. He thinks that he won’t be able to make it to the far-off land.
         The problem is solved because the frog made Jumping Mouse into a eagle and Jumping Mouse made it to the far-off land. There are some changes in the beginning of the story and end because at first Jumping Mouse wanted to go to the far-off land and at last he did. What i learned from this story is that you should’nt be selfish.

Then the mouse meets a frog named “Magic Frog.” Magic Frog gave him a new name “Jumping Mouse,” and gave him new hind legs to help him travel faster. Then he helped him cross the river. Jumping Mouse ate when he was hungry, and slept when he was exhausted.
       &nbsp In the middle of the story, Jumping Mouse meets a fat old mouse. He stayed with the old mouse until he was rested. The old mouse warned him about a snake that lived on the other side of the stream, and was afraid of water. When Jumping Mouse had to leave, he saw a branch that had fallen into the stream that would make a bridge for the snake to cross.
         Jumping Mouse hopped toward a boulder but realized it was a bison. He asked what was wrong with the bison. He was blind because he drank from a poisoned stream. Jumping Mouse felt sorry and gave him his own sight.
    Jumping Mouse named him Eyes-of-a-Mouse. The bison said he would guide him to the mountains. Then he dug a hole and went to sleep. He met a wolf who couldn’t smell, misused the gift of smell. He felt sorry for the wolf and gave him his own sense of smell. he named him Nose-of-a-Mouse. The wolf said he would guide him to the far-off land.

    “The story of Jumping Mouse” takes place beyond a river and the Far-off-Land. Theres a mouse who dreams of going to the Far-off-Land,but something happens on his way. He looses his sight and his smell because he gave them to a bison and a wolf.

    In the middle of the story a mouse dreams of going to the Far-off-Land so in the next day he goes to the Far-off-Land.On the Mouses way he meets a Magic Frog and the Mouse needs to cross the lake so,Magic Frog gives the Mouse kangroo legs and names him Jumping Mouse. After a while Jumping Mouse felt exhausted from traveling. Then Jumping Mouse meets a fat mouse and stays at it’s house. Next morning the fat mouse warns Jumping Mouse about the snake. While Jumping Mouse is walking he sees that a branch fell so he goes to warn the fat mouse but the hole was empty.

    In the late afternoon Jumping Mouse finds a place to rest but he meets a bison. Then the bison tells Jumping Mouse that he can’t see because he drank water from a poisen stream. Then Jumping Mouse names the bison Eyes-of-a-mouse. When Jumping Mouse can’t see Eyes-of-a-Mouse helps Jumping Mouse go to the mountains.

    On the next day Jumping Mouse meets a wolf. Jumping Mouse asks the wolf to take him to take him to the Far-off-Land. Then the wolf tells Jumping Mouse that he can’t smell so Jumping Mouse gives him the smell and names him Nose-of-a-Mouse. Now that Jumping Mouse can’t smell Nose-of-a-Mouse helps him get to the Far-off-Land.

    Finally, Jumping Mouse gets to the Far-off-Land,but Jumping Mouse feels sad because he can’t see or smell. After a mean while Magic Frog comes and says that great hardship brought him to the Far-off-land. Next Magic Frog frog transforms Jumping Mouse into an Eagle so he could be in the Far-off-Land forever.The lesson that can be taught is to never be selfish and to be kind.

    nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;”The story of Jumping Mouse” takes place in the grassy plains. Jumping Mouse was very unselfish and kind. The problem is that he’s not where he wants to be.
    nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;Mouse always dreamt of going to the far-off land because it seemed like a beautiful place. The next morning, the mouse got up early to find the far-off land. But, the mouse couldn’t cross the river so basically he couldn’t start his journey. As soon as a frog heard that mouse couldn’t cross the river, the frog introduced himself and said his name is Magic Frog. Just as Magic Frog was done talking, he started to ask the mouse why he couldn’t cross the river. Mouse said because he has short legs so, Magic Frog will name the mouse Jumping Mouse and the mouse started to grow long legs like a jackrabbit.
    nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;Now this is where the journey begins. While on the way to find the far-off land, Jumping Mouse met a fat mouse. Jumping Mouse told the fat mouse about how he got long legs to travel to the far-off land but the fat mouse didn’t care. The fat mouse told Jumping Mouse it’s not worth it to find the far-off land because when the fat mouse had a dream, he all he ever found was a desert. But that still didn’t make Jumping Mouse stop searching for the far-off land. Jumping Mouse felt exhausted becayse he went searching for the far-off land day and night non-stop. So, Jumping Mouse decided to rest at the fat mouse’s place for a night.
    nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;The next day, Jumping Mouse got up and left the place. On the way to the far-off land, Jumping Mouse meets some animals. One of them was a bison. The bison couldn’t see because he drank poisioned water from the stream. Jumping Mouse wanted to give his sight to the bison and named the bison Eyes-of-a-Mouse. The second animal he met while on his journey was a fox who couldn’t smell because he misused it and lost it. Jumping Mouse got saddend by his story so gave the fox his sense of smell and named the fox Nose-of-a-Mouse. Now, the mouse couldn’t see or hear. He thinks that he won’t be able to make it to the far-off land.
    nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;The problem is solved because the frog made Jumping Mouse into a eagle and Jumping Mouse made it to the far-off land. There are some changes in the beginning of the story and end because at first Jumping Mouse wanted to go to the far-off land and at last he did. What i learned from this story is that you should’nt be selfish.

        &nbsp“The story of Jumping Mouse” takes place beyond a river and the Far-off-Land. Theres a mouse who dreams of going to the Far-off-Land,but something happens on his way. He looses his sight and his smell because he gave them to a bison and a wolf.

         In the middle of the story a mouse dreams of going to the Far-off-Land so in the next day he goes to the Far-off-Land.On the Mouses way he meets a Magic Frog and the Mouse needs to cross the lake so,Magic Frog gives the Mouse kangroo legs and names him Jumping Mouse. After a while Jumping Mouse felt exhausted from traveling. Then Jumping Mouse meets a fat mouse and stays at it’s house. Next morning the fat mouse warns Jumping Mouse about the snake. While Jumping Mouse is walking he sees that a branch fell so he goes to warn the fat mouse but the hole was empty.

         In the late afternoon Jumping Mouse finds a place to rest but he meets a bison. Then the bison tells Jumping Mouse that he can’t see because he drank water from a poisen stream. Then Jumping Mouse names the bison Eyes-of-a-mouse. When Jumping Mouse can’t see Eyes-of-a-Mouse helps Jumping Mouse go to the mountains.

         On the next day Jumping Mouse meets a wolf. Jumping Mouse asks the wolf to take him to take him to the Far-off-Land. Then the wolf tells Jumping Mouse that he can’t smell so Jumping Mouse gives him the smell and names him Nose-of-a-Mouse. Now that Jumping Mouse can’t smell Nose-of-a-Mouse helps him get to the Far-off-Land.

         Finally, Jumping Mouse gets to the Far-off-Land,but Jumping Mouse feels sad because he can’t see or smell. After a mean while Magic Frog comes and says that great hardship brought him to the Far-off-land. Next Magic Frog frog transforms Jumping Mouse into an Eagle so he could be in the Far-off-Land forever.The lesson that can be taught is to never be selfish and to be kind.

        In the begging mouse dreams of going to the Far-off Land. Then one day he decides to go. Magic Frog helps mouse by giving him strong legs. There is a problem how is mouse going to get to the Far-off Land.

        Mouse always loved hearing about stories, about the Far-off Land. When Mouse started dreaming about the Far-off Land, he knew he was suppose to go. So the next morning Mouse decided he was going to go to the Far-off Land. So he left but but he had to cross a river to get to the other side. Mouse met a Magic Frog when he was trying to cross the river. The Magic Frog gave mouse new strong legs to help him on his journy to the Far-off Land.

        After Mouse crossed the river he stumbled along a berry bush. There at the berry bush stood a fat Mouse. The fat Mouse told mouse that there was a snake living on the other side of the river. So he stayed with the fat Mouse. One day Mouse looked at his reflection in the water and and noticed that he was almost getting as fat as the fat mouse. So he decided to leave but when he was leaving he notice a broken branch acting like a brige. Mouse knew that the snake could cross so he went to warn the fat mouse but it was to late the fat mouse had gotton eaten. Mouse felt sad for the fat mouse but he had to leave.

        While he was was traveling to the far off land he saw a bison. The bison told mouse that he had lost his eye sight by drinking from a poison stream. When Mouse heard this he wanted to help so he gave bison his eye sight. Mouse couldn’t see but the bison wanted to help Mouse get to the mountains so he guided Mouse to the mountains.

        After bison took Mouse to the mountains Mouse met a wolf. The wolf lost his smell and told Mouse. Mouse felt sad so he gave wolf his smell. Because Mouse helped wolf,wolf would take him to the far-off land.

        When Mouse got to the far-off land Mouse started to cry. Mouse was crying because he couldn’t smell or hear the far-off land. Magic frog came and told mouse that he shouldn’t cry because he was unselfish. so Magic frog turned Mouse into a eagle so he could live in the far-off land.

        At the end mouse finally got to the far-off land. I learned that if you are unselfish ,good things will happen to you.

         In the story” The Story of Jumping Mouse,” tells of a young mouse who wants to go to the far-off land, and would never be content until he had been there. On his way, he meets a frog who gives him new hind legs and name. Then, he meets a bison and a wolf who help him, because he helped them.
    In the beginning of the story, the young mouse wants to go to the far-off land but doesn’t know how. He came to a river but didn’t know how to swim. Then the mouse meets a frog named “Magic Frog.” Magic Frog gave him a new name “Jumping Mouse,” and gave him new hind legs to help him travel faster. Then he helped him cross the river. Jumping Mouse ate when he was hungry, and slept when he was exhausted.
      In the middle of the story, Jumping Mouse meets a fat old mouse. He stayed with the old mouse until he was rested. The old mouse warned him about a snake that lived on the other side of the stream, and was afraid of water. When Jumping Mouse had to leave, he saw a branch that had fallen into the stream that would make a bridge for the snake to cross.
    Jumping Mouse hopped toward a boulder but realized it was a bison. He asked what was wrong with the bison. He was blind because he drank from a poisoned stream. Jumping Mouse felt sorry and gave him his own sight.
    Jumping Mouse named him Eyes-of-a-Mouse. The bison said he would guide him to the mountains. Then he dug a hole and went to sleep. He met a wolf who couldn’t smell, misused the gift of smell. He felt sorry for the wolf and gave him his own sense of smell. he named him Nose-of-a-Mouse. The wolf said he would guide him to the far-off land.
    At the end of the story, Jumping Mouse made it to the far-off land. Then Magic Frog finds him and turns him into a eagle. Eagle would live in the far-off land forever. I learned that not to be selfish to yourself and others.

    The story of Jumping Mouse is an allegory of the Sun Dance. This is a traditional Native American ceremony that requires self-sacrifice, courage, support of others and creates a new consciousness in those who follow it. The animal of Jumping Mouse is the human being, interacting with other human beings in the most simple of ways. The Jumping Mouse receives a “call”, and his willingness to expand his awareness moves him to find those with medicine unlike his own for whom he gives and receives as a result. The transformation of Jumping Mouse to eagle is the product of moving forward in life, learning and internalizing and giving. The Sun Dance requires of a human- a piercing, a flesh offering, a giving of oneself, that is dedicated for others. His willingness to find the mountain is self-motivated, at any point he could have chosen to end his quest. He meets frog, bison and wolf, all with distinct medicines- qualities that characterize their lives. They become his helpers and he honors them with a giveaway. He meets old Mouse who has let fear end his quest. He finds the mountains that he first saw with the legs from frog and is transformed to eagle able to see human life from a new plane of perception. No longer near-sighted, no longer with the eyes of a mouse, but with the far ranging vision of eagle.
