The Little Grasshopper and the Big Ball of Dung is the second in a series of children’s books with NLP by The English Sisters, preceded by The Little Sparrow and the Chimney Pot.
It is designed to appeal to young children and is ideal for story time.
The little grasshopper bumps into a wise dung beetle who is rolling a ball of dung up a big hill. Rather cheekily, the little grasshopper wants to do what the dung beetle is doing ‘his way’, so has a go.
He soon learns that it’s not as easy as it looks. The little grasshopper then decides to listen to the wise dung beetle and models the dung beetle, ‘doing as he does’.
At the end of the story, he successfully models the dung beetle’s behaviour and achieves his desired outcome.
Modelling excellence is at the heart of NLP. As humans, we can model any behaviour by simply mastering the beliefs, the physiology and the thought processes that underpin the skill or behaviour.
It is essential for young children that these fundamental NLP skills are learnt, so that they acquire the necessary skills for life-long learning.
The Little Grasshopper and the Big Ball of Dung is a story to be enjoyed over and over again.
