The first time that my son and I read this book was at his doctors office; in the room waiting to be seen. When I read each characters quotes I animated my voice which in turned had us in tears laughing. We were laughing very loud that we had nurses come in and check on us. My son was disappointed that we weren't able to finish the entire book. Once we got home I placed the order to purchase it. This has now became one of our top favorite books to read before bed. My son enjoys this book so much that he's excited to read the book each night. It also helped speed up his reading fluency and reading speed since he enjoys the book that much. Now we quote the book when we wake up in the morning. Or even when we are out on our journey and we see insects, fruit, boats or whatever it is that is related to the book. Thank you for this book not only has it inspired my son to read more but also given him more interest in reading other books. He now wants to find more books to read at the book store to add to his collection at home.

Reason for Reading: Ds read aloud to me as his reader.This has always been one of my favourites of Lobel's books! While the whole story is about Grasshopper's journey, each chapter is episodic and tells a humorous tale of someone he meets along the way. These are so silly, they will have you laughing out loud along with your children. Ds enjoyed this one very much. He loves it when something silly or outrageous happens in a story and this kept him giggling. My favourite part is when he meets the beetles who love morning and they let Grasshopper join the club, giving him a sign and a wreath of flowers but as soon as he mentions he likes afternoon and evening as well they kick him out of the club and call him a 'dummy'. Ds's favourite is the story of a mosquito who insists that all must be ferried across the lake in his boat, no matter what. Well, the lake is a puddle and grasshopper won't fit into the boat and could easily hop over 'the lake'. The mosquito won't hear of it though, and grasshopper comes up with a great idea so as not to hurt mosquito's feelings. Since he can't fit in the boat he picks it up and carries it across the 'lake' and mosquito is happy that he has ferried Grasshopper across. Lovely illustrations, of course. A great easy reader that you can't go wrong with.
