The Ant and the Grasshopper

Once upon a time there was a grasshopper and an ant. They lived in a beautiful meadow. Each summer morning, Grasshopper climbed up her blade of grass. Once at the top, she started to sing. Her singing was fantastic. She sung with her legs, rubbing them together to create beautiful music. Grasshopper sang all through the long summer days. her music lit up the meadow. Lots of creatures stopped to listen. The ant kept scurrying past carrying grains of wheat, he looked tired and hot. “Why are you bustling about in this weather?” the grasshopper asked the ant. “I’m preparing for winter when there is less food, and so should you!” he replied. The grasshopper ignored the advice of the ant, she was enjoying the sunshine far too much to start collecting food for the winter. So she lay on the warm grass and listened to her music again. In the winter the grass was cold and frosty, and the wind howled across the fields. The ant was happy in his home because his larder was full of corn and wheat. He knew that he had enough food to last for the entire winter. The grasshopper was starting to get hungry, it was too cold for the grass outside to grow and she had no food. She knew that the ant would have some food, so she went out into the cold wind and walked to the ant’s house. “Please may I have some of your food?” she begged. The ant was angry because he had worked so hard to collect enough food for the long winter months ahead. “If you hadn’t been so lazy and had prepared for the winter like I suggested, you wouldn’t be hungry now. I don’t have any extra food for you.” The ant went back to his warm fire and stocked cupboards, leaving the lazy grasshopper out in the cold.
