The Ant and the Dove
One hot day, an ant was searching for some water. After walking around for some time, she came to a spring.
To reach the spring she had to climb up a blade of grass. While making her way up, she slipped and fell into
the water.
She could have drowned if a dove up a nearby tree had not helped her. Seeing that the ant was in trouble, the
dove quickly plucked a leaf and dropped it into the water near the struggling ant. The ant moved towards the leaf
and climbed up there. Soon, it carried her safely to dry ground.
Just as that time, a hunter nearby was throwing out his net towards the dove, hoping to trap it. Guessing
what he was about to do, the ant quickly bit him on the heel. Feeling the pain, the hunter dropped his net. Quickly,
the dove flied away to safety.

The Grasshopper and the Ant
One summer, a grasshopper spent his days merrily singing and dancing. He hopped everywhere, while ants
were busy gathering grains of wheat and corn. He laughed at the ants and said, “How dull! Why don’t you sing
and dance with me instead of working under the hot sun?”
“We are storing away food for the winter,” they explained, “you should do the same.”
The grasshopper laughed and replied, “Why worry about the winter? I have plenty to eat for now.” And he
hopped away to look for someone to play with.
But when the winter came, the grasshopper could fine no more food. Shivering, he knocked at the ants’ door.
“Can you spare me some seeds?” he begged. “I’m cold and hungry!”
“We worked hard all summer to store away food,” they answered. “What were you doing?”
“I was busy singing and dancing,” he said.
“Then sing and dance for us now!” They told him. “It’s time for you to work for your dinner.”
