The Ant And The Grasshopper


Aesop’s fable ‘The Ant And The Grasshopper’ dates as far back as the third century. As the fable goes…The ant works hard all summer long collecting food and building his house while the grasshopper plays and dances and calls the ant a fool. When the winter sets in and the snow starts blowing , the ant is nice and warm and well fed and the grasshopper is out in the cold with nothing to eat. The grasshopper either dies out in the cold or has to beg for food from the ant. Your choice as to endings depending on how mean you feel at the time of telling.
