Grasshopper, do you really do something different every day of your life Always, said Grasshopper. Always and always Grasshopper was tired He lay down in a soft place He knew that in the morning the road would still be there, taking him on and on to wherever he wanted to go To read often with everyone, best read out loud. Change is good and beautiful It s lovely to notice the differences in each day. One of Lobel s most charming works, which I may have missed as a child, or else forgotten. There is a dense, fabulist texture to these simple stories of a grasshopper traveling from place to place, meeting various insects The grasshopper s sanguine, live and let live attitude allows us to appreciate the idiosyncrasies of characters like morning beetles, routine bound butterflies, and the proud mosquito It reminds me that living in a community, any community, will run you up against a host of personalities, somemystifying than others but that ultimately, sticking to your own road and journeying your own journey is the way forward. I love Arnold Lobel. Grasshopper on the Road is a great book Grasshopper wanted to go on a journey First, he met beetles The beetles said, Morning is Tops Second, he met a worm The worm said, There is a hole in my roof, because Grasshopper took a bite of the apple that the worm was living in Third, he met a housefly The housefly swept dust in his eyes Fourth, he met a mosquito The mosquito said, You must hop in my boat Fifth, he met butterflies The butterflies do the same thing everyday Sixth, he met dragonflies The dragonflies led him to a comfy place Last, he went to sleep. ReadtheShelf ChallengeI do not remember ever reading this one as a kid I wonder if I did. Anyway It s not quite on the level of Frog and Toad but still I am amazed at the level of writing Simple, simple words but loads of meaning behind them This is such a pleasant book to read Tonight at bed time, I was the one saying onechapteronechapter. This is one of the best books ever written and it s only a level reader A level reader uses vocabulary appropriate for a particular reading level and is usually devoid of plot This level reader is insightful and allegorical and biblical in its proportions You heard me right Next time you are in a room of adults with toddlers, bring up an Arnold Lobel title Like Frog and Toad are Friends and every parent will start amazing you with plot lines like so many children s variety show personalities and I will tell you why. What he wrote delights a person to share them, and ALSO delights the recipient to hear them Don t ask me how Just know that these level readers have every literary device used in adult fiction, but are restricted to level vocabulary and typical children s characters and settings. Grasshopper on the Road is about The Everyman s journey through life meeting different personalities, but learning to retain one s self Grasshopper meets some weird characters and all of them lay a trip on him for not becoming like them, but Grasshopper resists In the end, his journey has been effective, because he has retained his own self along the way Oh, but you don t care You, along with your child, just laughed at the sweet little characters and funny dialog But what happens to you is a littleprofound You can never forget these stories, now Like a parent story zombie, whenever in life there is a trigger, you will recite the plot quite easily and someone else will then go read it I support the saying, If it is worth buying, you do not have to sell it Well this book will never need advertising The drones will take care of it. And now my job is done here. I m very fond of Grasshopper and his adventures.
