The Ant and the Grasshopper
Ant and Grasshopper Activities
"All you ants do is work all day.
You should be more like me and play, play, play!"
"I'm storing food for the winter season.
You should be working, for just the same reason.
What will you eat when the weather gets cold ?
How will you feed your hungry household?"
"All you ants do is work and worry.
Slow down, don't be in such a hurry.
around, there's plenty of food,
Don't give me advice, that's just plain rude."
"I toiled to save food for the winter freeze,
while you spent the summer playing in ease.
I stored just enough food for the winter , it's true,
But I can't feed you all winter , or I'll starve too."
