Make Hay While the Sun Shines; Adopt!
Grandpapa Pease’s Lady Golightly. Albany: E.H. Pease & Co., ca. 1841-1853.
This charming picture book tells the timeless fable of Lady Golightly, a fashionable grasshopper who spends the warm autumn days cavorting with her friends, instead of gathering food for a long, bitter winter. The frivolity of the insects is echoed by the human children playing in the hay.
