dc.description.abstractThis is the third acquisition among the series of six, and it convinced me to go after the other three, which will arrive soon. The pamphlet offers delightful cartoons, starting with the front-cover's strongly contrasting facial expressions of the grasshopper and ant. First the fable is told in its entirety, with helpful vocabulary at the page bottom. Then we start putting the story into a context for today by taking a few lines at a time and giving these lines a two-page spread. La Fontaine's focus comes out immediately as we read of Magali "Tout l'été, elle a chanté sur la plage pour le plus grand plaisir de ses amis." The beach scene offers quite a concoction of sunbathing insects! Magali's promise to pay Sigismonde with interest is based on her visualized hope of soon becoming famous through her singing. The observation that ants are not lenders is vividly demonstrated by their hard-hatted defense of their treasures (16-17). Magali spent the summer's days writing songs and the summer's evenings presenting those songs. "I worked for my public!" The last pages have plenty of good information about both insects and also good questions to ponder.en_US
