The Ant and the Grasshopper Hardback
by Katie Daynes
Illustrated by Merel Eyckerman
Part of the Usborne First Reading series
This is a new title in the fantastic "First Reading" series, aimed at children who are beginning to read.
It is a thoughtful retelling of Aesop's fable. It's the middle of summer and while the grasshopper is enjoying himself, the ant is busy preparing for winter and when winter arrives both the ant and the grasshopper learn something about the merits of hard work.
This key series was developed in conjunction with reading expert Allison Kelly from the University of Surrey, a reading specialist.
Every title has clear and compelling text that allows children to build their burgeoning reading skills and is accompanied by charming and highly appealing illustrations.
