    Title The Ant and the Grasshopper Author Mark WhiteIllustrator Sara RojoGenre FableThemes Hard work animals seasonsOpening linesentence “An ant once lived next to a grasshopper in a large field”Brief Book Summary The ant spends his summer gathering food and storing it in his house while the grasshopper just sings and dances When winter comes the grasshopper doesn’t have any food and sees that the ant has plenty The ant tells him there is a time for work and a time for playProfessional RecommendationReview #1 School Library Journal Karen Land Greenport Public School NY“In Ant White retells Aesop's fable in eually simple language The story can lead to classroom discussion about work and play Muted cartoon pictures using lots of browns and greens illustrate the story Clear illustrations in a cartoon style with soft golds browns and greens decorate every page Good choices for children who want to read these familiar stories on their own Professional RecommendationReview #2 – Marilyn Courtot Children’s Literature“In this retelling of Aesop’s fable the ant works from sunrise to sunset harvesting and storing food The grasshopper on the other hand spends his days singing and dancing He invited the ant to join him but the ant is always too busy When winter comes the grasshopper finds there is nothing for him to eat in the cold snow covered world He visits his neighbor and asks for food but the ant chides him reminding him of how he whiled away the summer days singing and dancing so “Now you can spend the winter dancing to keep warm” The final message from the ant “There is a time for play and a time for work” One can only assume that the grasshopper is indeed left out in the cold None of the animals are created with extensive detail but are drawn with rather broad outlines and shapes They are interesting and the scene with the grasshopper singing in the shower should bring a smile Part of the “Read it Readers” series that come in four color coded levels Yellow which is the level for this one is intended for readers with an expanded vocabulary and a wide variety of sentences There Is an opening note to parents and caregivers that explains the series’ structure and gives tips for using the book” 2004 Picture Window Books Response to Two Professional Reviews I agree with both of these reviews as I feel like this fable is written very well I think the moral of the story there is a time for work and a time for play – is crucial for children to learn Children will be faced with situations on a smaller level where they will choose between the options to have fun or to get work done The retelling of this fable does a good job at enforcing that moral through the lives of bugs which perhaps makes it less “intimidating” to children I also think the illustrations in this retelling are done in vivid color which makes the story excitingEvaluation of Literary Elements The retelling of this particular fable has been done multiple times and the plot seems to stay the same each time I think the plot is extremely important however because the moral of the story is shown through the plot and it is something all children will need to learn The style of the fable is simple and easy to read for beginner readers so not only can children enjoy the story but they can also obtain the value of the moral lesson from It as wellConsideration of Instructional Application I think the use of fables in classrooms is very important It gives the teacher the opportunity to teach students a moral lesson without having to do it through themselves I think this story can be used to teach a moral lesson in the classroom even though some students may not even realize they are learning it while reading about an ant and a grasshopper

    1 This is a traditional literature picture book2 This is about an ant that works hard his whole life preparing for winter and misses out on a happy life He learns from the grasshopper that it is important to live each day to the fullest and to enjoy the little things in life that make you happy 3 A I think this is a very appropriate traditional literature picture book The book has a lesson or moral learned throughout it It teaches a really nice message The bugs are the ones that speak as the characters They are human like by the way they talk I think this is a very accurate storyB I found this book to be very appropriate I thought the moral was very appropriate and a reader will learn a very good message through this book The bugs talk as if they are humans They work like humans and have struggles like humans I thought that children would be able to follow along with the plot very well and I think the characters would be easy to understand C At the end of the book the ant realizes all he has done his whole life is work and that he never enjoyed the simple things He regrets never listening to the grasshoppers beautiful music In the end the grasshopper explains to the aunt that it is important to live for today and live life to the fullest He explains that the ant can’t go through live worrying about what is to come in future This is a great example of a moral The moral is explicitly stated and easy for a reader to understand 4 I really liked this book I think that children would really like the characters and I think they would be really engaged in the book I think that this is a great book to introduce children to traditional literature and it is also a great example to show children what a moral is I would really like to use this book in my future classroom because I think this is a very strong traditional literature book

    I really like this book because it teaches a lesson about when there's a time for play and a time for work and this was said by the ant from the story The illustration is very simple and easy for young children to follow You can see the ant working continuously gathering food throughout the year to prepare for winter while the grasshopper is singing dancing and playing throughout the year When it comes to winter the ant is all secured while the grasshopper goes outside to find out that there is no food for him There are rich vocabularies for children to learn such as sunrise and sunset By reading this book to young children we can show how ant is a hard worker and also smart about making decisions when the grasshopper asks him to play The author shows that being lazy and unproductive will only leave the grasshopper lonely and hunger during the winter The moral of this story is that yes there is a time to play and a time to work and this should be emphasize to children when they are at school and also at home

    Throughout the book the ant works hard to prepare for the winter packing food away The grasshopper however spends his free time making music When winter arrives the grasshopper is left without food Again this book shows the importance of hard work and that it will pay off in the future
