The ant and the grasshopper


Narrator : Once upon a time in a field on a summer day, there was a happy Grasshopper who liked to play, sing, and dance all day.

Grasshopper : What a splendid day! …La,la,la,la,la. I have nothing to do, but sing and play… la,la,la,la,la…

Narrator : As she was singing, an ant was passing by.

Ant : Don’t you ever get tired of playing?

Grasshopper : Who, me? … of course not!

Ant : Don’t you ever work?

Grasshopper : Who, me? … Of course not! Do you want to play with me?

Ant : No, I have work to do.

Grasshopper : Come on, let’s sing together.

Ant : No, I’m very busy right now.

Grasshopper : Work, work, work! … That’s all you do… you don’t have time to play or sing with me.

Ant : No, I don’t.

Grasshopper : Why are you in such a hurry?

Ant : I have to take home this kernel of corn.

Grasshopper : What for?

Ant : I have to store food for the wrnter.

Grasshopper : How can you think about winter on such a fine day?

Ant : Because the winter will be here soon, and food will be too hard to find… and you should do the same.

Grasshopper : I don’t want to worry about winter right now! You just go ahead and work, work, work… and I will just play, sing, and dance.

Ant : Soon, you will not have enough food to eat.

Grasshopper : I don’t worry about tomorrow.

Ant : I do… good-bye.

Narrator : So that Ant went to its way and continued its work. The weather soon turned cold, and all the food lying in the field was covered
with a thick white blanket of snow.

Grasshopper : I should have listened to the ant! It’s so cold that I can’t even play, or sing songs any more… and I don’t have food to eat. I am
sure the ant will help me!

Narrator : The Grasshopper went to the ant’s hill.

Grasshopper : Please, ant. Give me something to eat… I am cold and hungry.

Ant : Why should I help you? What did you do all summer?

Grasshopper : I played, sang, and danced.

Ant : And I worked, worked, worked… Hmm… Come in and have some food.

Grasshopper : Thank you so much. Now what can I do in return for you?

Ant : Why don’t you sing and dance for me?

Narrator :And to the request of the ant, the grasshopper sang and danced.
