I was in the garden the other day (plucking peppers) and saw many wonderful bugs. Big black and yellow spiders strung webs among the tomato plants. The webs trapped insects as strong as grasshoppers and as small as flies.
Roly-poly bugs tracked across the dirt. They seemed to like devouring vegetables that fell to the ground. In the tall sunflowers, butterflies and moths flew: white ones, blue ones, monarchs, and little fuzzy ones with wings like autumn leaves.
What bugs have you seen this summer? Ask a Librarian to help you find great books or movies on spiders, grasshoppers, bees, butterflies, moths, ladybugs, praying mantises, or your favorite insect.
Yours with snorts,
A mosquito who follows the rules, even when they don't make sense. Dragonflies who zip and zoom in the air. They all wonder why Grasshopper is not like them. But Grasshopper is happy to be walking slowly down the road. In Grasshopper, Arnold Lobel has created another character that beginning readers will love and understand.
