The Ant Who Loved Stars
By Brenda B. Covert

1     One clear night an ant sat on a hill. "It's a perfect night for counting stars," she said. "I will draw a map of them."
2     An old ant popped out of the hill. "Are you still up?" he asked. "It's late!"
3     The first ant told the old ant about her map. The old ant was kind. He took a dewdrop and the sugar from a gumdrop. "I will mix these and make a sweet drink," he said. He gave it to the ant who loved stars.
4     She took a sip. "This is better than a rain drop! Thank you!"
5     The old ant nodded. "I need to get some sleep. I will see you in the morning," he said.
