Here’s the third Aesop’s Fable from Caldecott Medalist Jerry Pinkney! Grasshopper loves to play and dance and sing. He doesn’t understand why the ants won’t join in the fun. They’re always work, work, working. They don’t take the time to enjoy fishing in the springtime, or sunbathing in the summer, or leaf dancing in the fall. However, when winter comes, Grasshopper’s fun comes to a chilly halt. Building snowmen and making snow angels is great, but eventually the elements become too much for Grasshopper. He runs out of food and needs a warm place to stay. But will the ants share what they’ve worked so hard for all year? Told with Pinkney’s magnificent water colors, this classic Aesop fable comes to stunning life like never before. Your young readers will be amazed by Pinkney’s glowing illustration even as they discover that it’s important to balance work and play. Ages 3–8.
