Brrrrr! It’s getting colder now.
My coat begins to grow.
Time to start my winter stash
Before the freezing snow!
All my friends like stealing food,
Which isn’t very kind.
I’ll be smart and hide a ton
For us to seek and find.
Sniff! I find some acorns. Yum!
I stash them in the ground.
Next, come spinning maple seeds.
I pounce. I leap. I bound!
