The Grasshopper & the Ants

About the Book

The Grasshopper & the Ants

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.
