The Grasshopper & the Ants
The Grasshopper & the Ants | Jerry Pinkney
21 posts | 9 read
In this stunning companion to the Caldecott Medal-winning The Lion & the Mouse and the highly acclaimed The Tortoise & the Hare, a playful grasshopper wonders why the busy ants around him won't join in his merrymaking as the seasons pass by. But when winter arrives, he soon sees the value of his friends' hard work--just as the ants learn the value of sharing what they've worked for. Featuring a striking, surprise gatefold page, this third book in Jerry Pinkney's gorgeous trilogy of picture book fables subtly suggests a resonant moral: Don't put off for tomorrow what you can do today.

This book is colorful and displays a great timeline of the seasons. I think it shows how much work a person can put it and that it sometimes takes time.

Very cute illustrations.

This story published in 2015 is very one dimensional with its characters because it is more of a fable. The illustrations are incredibly beautiful and bright. The message there is very little dialogue but the illustrations make up for it.

The grasshopper and the ants , published in 2015 was a very cool read. With the lack of words it made the pictures tell the story even deeper. The illustration sucked you in right from the first page.

I like this book. The same author made the lion and the mouse. I like how two different animals come together as one and bond.

A great interpretation of a timeless fable that teaches us to work hard. It uses a pairing of two creatures together that become friends.

This book was published in 2015. The illustrations of seasons are really fun to look at and take you back into that season when on that page. The story line is okay but this book would be good for the younger ones trying to learn about friends and seasons.

This book is very different! It tells a cute story and even has several pages that tell the timeline of the story through only illustrations!

Pinkney breathes new life into classic Daniels and other staples in the lives of young children. His illustrations are spectacular, each a true piece of art in its‘ own right. No wonder he has been recognized Caldecott so often! He is amazing!
