Your Favorite Book

2-3 Hour Experience at Your Home

Bookworms, rejoice! We have just the thing for literary lovers and avid readers. Provide Grasshopper with the title of your child or group's favorite book(s), and Librarian Lisa will design a custom experience that journeys through the beloved book's themes and scenes. This custom experience will include reading, discussion, crafts, and games, all centered around one's favorite book. Librarian Lisa, with her expansive knowledge of children's literature, will also incorporate some other stories and books that line up well with the favorite tales chosen. For all reading levels, this experience can also be booked as a multi-week series.

What Parents Are Saying

We LOVED everything about Grasshopper! The customer service experience was exceptional! I felt like so much intentionality was taken to ensure that the activity would be both age appropriate and fun for my kids. Our experience leader was so easy going and chatted with the kids during the experience, and really took the time to engage and get to know them. We are definitely going to be using Grasshopper again! Thank you!

Grasshopper offered my daughter an opportunity to learn in a vibrant, fun setting that was continuously customized for her attention span and interests. Her Grasshopper teacher was fun, engaging and supremely personable. She took the time to get to know my daughter before diving into anything. I felt more than comfortable leaving my daughter in such capable hands…and love that she truly learned some new things from the experience. We will be using Grasshopper regularly to broaden her horizons and expose her to new concepts in a safe and compelling way. The icing on the cake is that the experience took place in our home, at a time that was convenient for us!

Our Grasshopper experience was amazing! I have four very curious kids at different ages with different interests, and the experience had all four of them engaged the whole time. Also, as an educator, I was very impressed with how the teacher led the program. She obviously knew what she was doing, and the minute she left, my kids were asking for another experience.
