The Grasshopper & the Ants by Jerry PInkney
The grasshopper can't understand why the ants are so busy getting ready for winter. As the seasons pass, the grasshopper can't understand why the ants are so busy working. When winter arrives the grasshopper sees the value of the work the ants did while he played. Through pages including simple sentences as well as a series of wordless, powerfully illustrated pages, the story of the ants and the grasshopper is told with the same wisdom. Jerry Pinkney never disappoints.
