In The Errand and Stinkbugs and Grasshoppers Green, author Carolyn Binkley tells a rhyming story about a curious, yet clumsy young girl who runs an errand for her mom.
Set in rural surroundings, she is sent to a neighbor's house and encounters a family of stinkbugs, a bumblebee, a katydid and a grasshopper along the way. At the end of the story, she realizes how grownups, distracted by responsibilities, often seem not to notice the presence of these amazing creatures.
Carolyn Binkley lives in the coastal town of Santa Barbara, California with her husband, two rescued dogs, one mischievous cat, and six happy hens. Her greatest passion, other than family, is writing inspirational prose, short stories, and poetry involving nature, life, and hope. The Errand… and stinkbugs and grasshoppers green details a young girl's distractions with insects as she journeys through her neighbor's yard on an errand. Writing this story, Carolyn was reminded of her own adventurous childhood and her life-long curiosity of creatures, great and small.
Love the story, easy to follow and keeps the attention of the little ones. Graphics are colorful and plentiful.
