The Ant and the Grasshopper are friends. They meet and play every day. One day, the Ant says to the Grasshopper, “The rain will come soon. Let us gather some food.” “There is time still,” says the Grasshopper. “Let us play.” The Ant does not want to play. He goes away to gather food. The Ant works hard. The Grasshopper does not work. He sings and plays all day. He laughs at the Ant and says, “You silly Ant, why do you work so hard? Come and play.” The Ant does not play with the grasshopper. He goes on working.
One morning, the rains come. It rains and rains and rains. It rains for many days. The Grasshopper has no food. He is very hungry. He goes to see the Ant. He asks the Ant for food. “I cannot give you any food,” says the Ant. “I need the food myself.” The Grasshopper goes away sadly.
JWe should always save up for the future.
