Once upon a time, there was a busy squirrel and a playful mouse. The squirrel spent each day gathering nuts and seeds for the winter.

But the mouse loved to sing and dance in the sunshine without a care.

The squirrel warned the mouse, “Winter is coming. You should collect food too.”

But the mouse thought there was plenty of time to have fun.

When winter arrived, the mouse felt very cold and hungry. He realized he should have listened to the squirrel.

Shivering and weak, the mouse went to the squirrel’s house and asked for help.

The kind squirrel had stored lots of food and shared it with the mouse. The mouse learned an important lesson that day.

He understood that it’s important to work hard and plan ahead.

Playing all the time without thinking about the future can lead to problems.

Moral of the story

Planning ahead and working hard are important to avoid problems in the future.
