Grasshopper Eye lived in a village deep in the forest. He made small vials that villagers could put their sad tears in.

He felt that letting sad tears fall down your face or wiping them away was a huge waste of something that took so much pain to make.


My Review
Grasshopper Eye is a cute children's book with unique illustrations. It's a story that teaches kids it's okay to cry. It's okay to have emotions and big feelings sometimes.
Each villager is gifted a vial for their tears by Grasshopper Eye, but one day all the vials go missing. Now no one can cry. It's up to all of them to discover what happened to their vials so they can cry again.
The story also touches on friendship, kindness, and fitting in. Being a part of something larger than yourself, and on being a caring person. I think those are good messages/lessons for kids to learn and understand at a young age.
I really liked Grasshopper Eye and the Lost Vial, and i'd recommend it to parents and younger readers.
4 stars!
