It was a beautiful autumn day and Chester Chipmunk was hungry. He had just spent the whole morning gathering acorns.
“I sure do have a lot of acorns gathered up already,” said Chester, looking at the huge pile that he had stacked up. “I know I am not going to starve this winter.”
Chester took a handful of acorns from the pile and he ate them for breakfast.
“I am very thankful to have all these acorns,” said Chester. “It is nice that I can grab a handful whenever I want to.”
Chester went to visit his sister, Suzie, later that day. She was outside gathering acorns as well.
“How come you aren’t out collecting acorns for yourself?” asked Suzie. “I hope you aren’t going to wait until the last minute to gather yours.”
“I am actually done,” said Chester, helping his sister. “There are actually tons of acorns this year.”
“Yes there is,” said Suzie. “I am thankful for the abundance of acorns this year. It will be nice to not have to worry about food this winter.”
Chester and Suzie both enjoyed a huge feast of acorns for dinner that evening.
“Do you know what day it is today?” asked Susie, looking at the calendar on her wall. “It is Thanksgiving.”
“Very fitting,” said Chester. “Since we are both thankful for the acorns we have.”
