Rachel Interviews Gene the Grasshopper
By Kathleen W. Redman
  

1     "Good morning, boys and girls. I'm Rachel Scott, the host of Bugs Beyond Belief. Today I have here one of the most common insects around. Even though he's common, he's still very interesting. His name is Gene, and he's a grasshopper. Good morning, Gene."
 
2     "Morning, Rachel. You're right that we're very common. In fact, boys and girls all over the world know about grasshoppers. That's because we live almost everywhere."
 
3     "Almost everywhere?"
 
4     "Yes. We don't live near the North and South poles."
 
5     "Why not? Is it too cold for grasshoppers there?"
 
6     "Actually, it's because there's no food there. No grasshopper food, anyway."
 
7     "And what exactly do grasshoppers like to eat?"
 
8     "We love plants, leaves especially. Show me a grasshopper and I'll show you someone who loves to snack on a leaf. I promise."
