All the field mice work to set aside supplies for the long cold winter. That is, all the mice except Fredrick. The others ask Fredrick what he is doing and he replies, he is collecting sun rays, colours and words for the long winter. When the supplies run low in the winter time, the mice come to Fredrick to ask for his contribution. He reminds them of the summer time and helps them feel warm and happy.
