The Grasshopper and the Ant - English Short Stories for Kids

The Grasshopper and the Ant - English Short Stories for Kids


It was a beautiful spring day, a grasshopper was playing in a green grassy field. In that field he noticed a line of ants marching along carrying some grains of wheat. The grasshopper asked, “ Where are you going with that big load?”.
“We are taking these grains to our nest,” said the Ant. “But it's such a beautiful day, come and have fun with me,” said the grasshopper.

“No, I think you should come work with us it's going to be a long winter with lots of snow. You had better start storing your food now” replied the ant.
“Why worry about the winter? It's only spring, and there are lots of food everywhere,” said the grasshopper. The grasshopper did not listen to ant. All through the spring, the grasshopper did nothing except eat, sleep and play. He became quite fat.
Then the summer came. Ants were busy collecting food for winter, but the grasshopper did nothing but eat, sleep and play. He became even fatter!.

Later Autumn came. Ant advised grasshopper to collect food for winter but he didn't listen. “Winter is not here yet, and when it comes, I am sure I will be able to find some food”. 
A few weeks later, winter came, and the snow began to fall. Just as the ants said, the snow was very deep. 
Ants were all snug(warm and comfortable)in their nest with lots of good food to eat. 
The grasshopper, however, had trouble finding food. He was very hungry and miserably cold all winter. By the time winter had ended. 
The grasshopper had learned a valuable lesson. Next spring onward, the grasshopper went out to gather food with the ant.
