In fact, very little is known about this mysterious Ancient Greek figure. He is thought to have been a slave originally from Africa, but even that isn’t known for certain. But his stories, with their talking animals and simple moral lessons, have been popular for thousands of years. They have been translated into almost every language and were among the first books to be printed when the printing press was invented in the 1400s. The most famous Aesop’s Fable is probably the story of The Hare and the Tortoise, with its message that “slow and steady wins the race.” Children everywhere have grown up loving these delightful short tales, learning and growing through their bond with these timeless classics. I grew up enjoying many of Aesop’s fables and I’m excited to share them with you here in my own style, a little more contemporary and told in rhymes to make them fun to read and listen to. I hope you and your kids will love sharing these stories and learning from their messages just as much as I always have.

    The tell of the Grasshopper and the Ant is a very old fable. The illustrations are colorful and cute. The old tale teaches us that if we work hard, we will be prepared when the cold winter, or bad times come, and we will have nothing to fear.

    This is a wonderful book with beautiful illustrations. The author has taken a classic Aesop's fable and updated it into a book children will love and parents will be delighted to have them read. The author uses rhyming text and a fun story to tell how the ant teaches a valuable lesson to the grasshopper. Readers will also learn something along the way. If you prepare for the future you will be better off in the end. Sometimes, it is easier to be like the grasshopper and not worry about what may This is a wonderful book with beautiful illustrations.

If, however, we are like the ant and look ahead, things definitely go a bit smoother.

This time ‘round she continues her survey of Aesop’s Fables (THE GRASSHOPPER AND THE ANT is Book 2 of that series) and in doing so she not only provides quality reading entertainment, but also opens the path for children to appreciate beloved fables of yesteryear. Each of her books was written in Hebrew and as they became best sellers in Israel she decided to have them translated into English to benefit an even broader range of children. As always Sigal's rhyming style is delightful. The stories are not only entertaining but they also carry some subtle messages to those children fortunate enough to read them - or have them read to them. The books are enhanced by illustrator Abira Das. The Aesop fable Sigal uses describes how a hungry grasshopper begs for food from an ant when winter comes and is refused, the moral being the virtues of hard work and planning for the future. Sigal’s retelling of the fable in rhyming fashion places a more positive stance and makes this important fable accessible to children and is a particular joy, summarizing the tale as follows: ‘When you work all summer to save up your crumbs You’ll have no worries when winter comes.’ But on to the lyricism – ‘Once a grasshopper lived near a sweet ant Wonderful neighbors around the same plant; Childhood friends so loyal and true, Good-hearted bugs they were through and through.’ The ant uses her time in the spring to gather food while the grasshopper relaxes and lives for music, games, and play. But when winter comes the ant has her food and the grasshopper is left without friends, needing to depend on the friendship with the ant to survive. ‘That’s how they spent the winter that year Proving that friends are good to have near. A fun story with a solid message beautifully illustrated - and Sigal Adler successfully adds to her repertoire of fine children's books.

    This story shares a very important lesson with it's reader. And that is there is a time to work and a time to play. The grasshopper spent all summer playing music and having fun that when the winter came he had no food stored and no shelter to live in. He came across the busy ants who had worked all summer long to build a nest and store up food and he asked if he could have some food to make it through the winter. The ants told him there is a time to work and a time to play. This is an important This story shares a very important lesson with it's reader. And that is there is a time to work and a time to play.

    This story is very detailed and has such a strong messages for students to catch onto and learn about. Not only are the pictures very descriptive but the little bit of wording that is there really helps the student gain the knowledge of the story.

    Classic Tale It's the classic tale of the grasshopper and ant. It's shortened and has a rhyme pattern that helps to keep the attention of smaller children.

    A great lesson and story! I loved the illustrations, rhyming, and lesson in this book! The grasshopper learns a hard lesson. A great friend teaches him the kind way though.

    The ant is starving and begs the grasshopper for food. The grasshopper agrees to help the ant, but only if the ant puts in the work too.
