GA is told here in traditional fashion and is illustrated with lively cartoon characters including Bee, Ladybug, and Spider. When we meet Ant, she is struggling to balance a number of grains on her back. Grasshopper annoys the other insects by dancing and singing at night when the other insects are trying to sleep. By the end of the summer, Ant has four little children ants. She asks Grasshopper at this point what he is doing about building a nest and storing food. In the end, Ant relents and lets Grasshopper in. Grasshopper learns his lesson and is ready to build a nest of his own when spring arrives.
