A little brown acorn fell to the ground.
A pile of orange leaves muffled its sound.
A hungry gray squirrel discovered a meal.
But soon was distracted by curious squeals.
Er-Ew. Er-Ew. SQUEE!
A shiny red trike slowed near the tree.
Squirrel’s tail twitched quickly; he needed to flee.
Golden-haired Zoey climbed to the ground.
Mommy, come look at the acorn I found!
Tap, tap, tap.
Little squirrel feared he was losing his snack.
Shuffle worry. Shuffle scurry.
He needed a plan to get his nut back!
She needed to SEE him to give him a chance.
He’d go out on a limb. He’d do a squirrel dance!
Zoey heard something above in the tree.
Did that squirrel dance? Did he just wave at me?
Clap! Clap! Yay!
She took the acorn from the leaf pile,
looked into the tree, and gave squirrel a smile.
Rustle, rustle, peek.
Hello, Mr. Squirrel, is this what you want?
Were you eating brunch at a squirrel restaurant?
The squirrel scurried down with lightening fast speed
Would he make it in time? Would he succeed?
He made it to Zoey, ran into her feet.
He was ready to claim his sweet, nutty treat!
She held out his nut; he took it with pleasure.
Then dashed right off – to stash his new treasure.
