Hooray for Hoppers!

While cleaning out my files, I found a magazine clipping about grasshoppers,, “Hooray for Hoppers,” by Diane Swanson, Ranger Rick magazine.  I love Ranger Rick. It’s such an inspiring resource, a perfect monthly gift for the curious kid.  The article says “An average grasshopper can jump a distance 20 times its length. Humans can jump only about five times their length…”

I can imagine educators coming up with some great activities related to these facts. Those activities might go along with my new book, released in February, IF YOU’RE HOPPY, illustrated by Jackie Urbanovic, published by Greenwillow.
