One fine day in winter some Ants were busy drying their store of corn, which had got rather damp during a long spell of rain. Presently up came a Grasshopper and begged them to spare her a few grains. The Ants stopped work for a moment, though this was against their principles. They asked what the grasshopper was doing with himself all last summer. The Grasshopper replied, "I was so busy singing that I hadn't the time." "If you spent the summer singing," replied the Ants, "you can't do better than spend the winter dancing." And they chuckled and went on with their work.

    Recall the final step in the process to determine theme—use the events that happened in the fable and why they happened to infer the theme. Writing in complete sentences, identify the theme.

    The message is that some people won't help you, if you don't help yourself. The grasshopper spent the summer singing instead of doing the work that would help him in the wintertime. Some people, like the ants, won't help someone if they weren't working as hard as they could. They weren't going to give up their corn that they scavenged for all summer.
