Grasshopper in the Window
Grasshopper in the Window, by Dr. Frankhouser, is Book One of a series of fictional stories for the young reader. It is written from the eyes of a six-year-old girl who loves living on a farm with her family in eastern Oklahoma. It is a delightful story that introduces the young reader to family life during our nation's great depression, circa 1930. Their farm produces most of the family food, income, and is the setting for social interaction, and spiritual training. The series centers on the fictional character, Margarita Eileen, and covers over seventy-years of her life. The series recounts how her devotion to prayer and faith in God carries her through many challenges and heart-breaking experiences. Those who teach Bible studies, home school their children, or mentor at-risk populations may find this series helpful as supplemental teaching material. Book appendices provide opportunities for extended discourse and Bible research.
