The Grasshopper & the Ants - Jerry Pinkney

Grasshopper, a one-insect band, wants to relax the whole year. Even though the ants won’t join him in idleness, The Grasshopper & the Ants (Little, Brown, $18) coexist side by side, content to play and work on their own. Grasshopper passes spring, summer, and fall in bliss, but when winter arrives and the ants disappear into their tunnels, he soon realizes the mistake he’s made. Luckily, Grasshopper isn’t alone in the snow for long. The queen invites him in for tea, and he regales her colony with a song. Jerry Pinkney reimagines another of Aesop’s fables in gorgeous detail, twisting the tale to be about kindness and friendship. Ages 3-7. Allison Witten
