max and kate

“This is the color of your coat, Max,” says Kate. She shows him a yellow maple leaf. “You blend in with the yellow leaves, Max,” says Kate's daddy. “That is called camouflage. See how that squirrel blends in with the red leaves up there?” “Yes, lots of animals hide like that. Just look at that frog!” says Max's daddy. Suddenly, Max laughs. “Wait a minute. Is that a moose?” Kate grins and says, “Branches make good camouflage, too.” Silly Charlie is peeking out from behind a tree. “Look at my antlers!” he yells.…

not the same squirrel

Jenny and her dad went for a walk on Sunday afternoon.“Look, there’s a gray squirrel,” said Jenny.“He’s probably hoping we will feed him,” said Dad.“I have some nuts,” said Jenny. “I will throw him one.”“No, it’s best not to feed wild animals,” said Dad.“I’m sorry, squirrel. I can’t feed you,” explained Jenny.The squirrel ran away. Dad and Jenny walked some more. “Look, there’s another squirrel,” said Jenny.“Is it the same one?” “This squirrel is also gray,” said Dad. “But this squirrel is wearing a ten-gallon hat,” said Jenny. “That’s strange.

the halloween costume countdown

Cat and Mouse sat in Cat’s house talking about what costumes to make for Alligator’s Halloween party. They had a big pile of arts and crafts supplies . . . but no big ideas. “We’ve got to decide soon, Mouse,” said Cat. “The party starts in two hours.” He shook out an old sheet. “I know. I’ll be a ghost!” Ding-dong! The doorbell rang. The friends jumped up and hurried to answer it. As Cat opened the door, a ghost on the front steps yelled, “Boo!” Cat glanced at the scaly feet peeking out from under the ghost’s flowing sheet. “Hello, Alligator,” he said. “I couldn’t wait to show you what I’m wearing for my party,” said Alligator. “It’s a great costume,” said Cat. “Come on in.” “Thanks,” said Alligator, “but I’ve got to dip some…
