One fine summer day，a Grasshopper（蚱蜢）was hopping about and singing happily.She sang and sang as if she had not a care in the world.An Ant passed by，struggling along with some food.He was taking the food to his home.
"Hello，Brother Ant！You work the whole day long.Why do you work so hard？It is such a fine day.Come over here and we sing and play together."
"No，Sister Grassopper.I really do not have time to sing and play."
said the Ant.“I must prepare for the winter，and you must do the same.”
The Grasshopper laughed and said，"Winter is still far away.I shall have plenty of time to look for food later.Life is short.We must enjoy ourselves."The Ant shook his head and went on his way.
Months passed.Then winter came.The ground was covered with snow.The Ant was happy because he had prepared enough food for the winter.But the Grasshopper was hungry.She had not eaten anything for days.She said sadly，"I am dying of hunger.Now I know it is best to prepare today for the need of tomorrow."
