The ants think they are better than the grasshoppers, until a long, boring winter sets in. Cooped up in the anthill, they miss the grasshoppers’ entertainment. Can Little Ant help his friend make it through the winter doing what loves?
This re-imagining of Aesop’s “The Ant and the Grasshopper” turns the classic fable on its head, melding Aesop’s moral about the virtue of hard work with the wisdom of Confucius: If you choose a job that you love, you will never have to work a day in your life.
