"Grasshopper, who wants to go on a journey, sets out down the road, meeting animals who are too busy with their own activities to enjoy the sights and sounds of nature." ( Publishers Weekly)

Not For the 0-4 group

We are very conscious of our word choices around our children. We do not use the words stupid or dummy in our home and do not choose stories that do. I will be returning this book.
Otherwise the story is fine, in fact rather good but There are many rather good stories that use better words.
