The Sassy Squirrel
By Mary Lynn Bushong

1     Sassy sat on a stump. She looked up. She looked down. She moved her tail up and down. Sassy was a black squirrel.
2     It was fall. It was a time to gather food. Sassy was going to get acorns. She knew just the place.
3     Sassy jumped off the stump. She went to a tree. She could run along its branches. They were like a squirrel road.
4     She jumped and ran and jumped again. This was as close as she could get.
5     Sassy climbed down the tree. She hopped onto a fence.
6     She sniffed the air. A dog lived in this yard. He did not like squirrels. He would try to catch her. Sassy did not want him to catch her.
7     She could not see the dog. She could not smell the dog. She knew the dog was still living there. Perhaps it was in the house.
8     Sassy ran along the fence. She looked at the yard. She looked at the tall oak tree there. There were many acorns under the tree.
