The grasshopper thought that why not lie down in the shade of a tree and sleep for a while. Thinking so, Harry fell asleep under a big tree.


After some time, when the grasshopper opened his eyes, he saw that many ants were picking up food items on their heads and storing them in their house. Some of those ants were also collecting dry leaves and wood etc.


The grasshopper jumped and went to them and said to the ants - "What are you doing? Are you having a party today so you are collecting so much food? The ants knew grasshopper nature, they said no, Harry! We don't have any party here.


Harry Grasshopper asked again, why are you hoarding so much food? On this an ant told him that the summer season is about to leave and now winter is about to come, so we are storing food because food is not easily available in winter. You should also store some food for yourself so that you also do not face any problem of eating during the winter season.

The ant told all the things to the queen ant and also told that Harry the grasshopper is kind-hearted and also saved one of our fellow ants from drowning in the river.


Hearing the whole thing, Queen Ant said that we should help the grasshopper. He ordered the other ants to build a house for the grasshopper to live near their burrow with leaves and wood.


All the ants together made a house for the grasshopper and made hot soup and fed it to the grasshopper, which removed the grasshopper's cold and the grasshopper soon got up. The grasshopper thanked the queen ant and other ants for saving their lives.


Queen Ant said listen grasshopper! You are a kind and good grasshopper. Always remember that keeping in view the future, we should fulfill our needs in time, otherwise there is a lot of problem.
