Baby Acorn was playing on the branch of an oak tree where his parents lived. It was a very windy day.
“I think you need to get out of the wind,” said Mama Acorn. “It is too windy out there.”
Baby Acorn took a step but the wind caught him. He rolled off the branch and fell to the ground.
“Baby Acorn!” screamed Mama Acorn looking over the edge of the branch. “Are you okay?”
“I’m not hurt,” said Baby Acorn.
“Okay good,” said Mama Acorn. “Your father and I will figure out a way to get you back up to the branch.”
Just then, another gust of wind came along and it blew Baby Acorn away. He rolled through the grass, down the hill and stopped at the edge of a fence.
“Oh hello there,” Baby Acorn heard a voice say to him.
“Who are you?” asked Baby Acorn.
“I am a scarecrow,” said the voice. “My name is Lonely Scarecrow.”
“My name is Baby Acorn,” said Baby Acorn.
“How did you get here?” asked Lonely Scarecrow.
“I fell off the branch my parents live on,” said Baby Acorn. “It is very windy out. Once I was on the ground, the wind blew me down the hill and I ended up here.”
“Oh dear,” said Lonely Scarecrow. “That is some adventure you have been on. Are you, okay?”
“Yes,” said Baby Acorn. “I am okay. I miss my parents though. They are going to be worried sick about me.”
“I am sure the owners of this farm, Joshua and Penny will help get you back to your parents,” said Lonely Scarecrow.
“Oh that would be so nice,” said Baby Acorn. “Mama and Papa would really appreciate it.”
Within the hour, Joshua came over to check on Lonely Scarecrow and the other scarecrows. Lonely Scarecrow explained to him about Baby Acorn and Joshua didn’t hesitate to help Baby Acorn get back to his parents.
“Thank you so much,” said Mama Acorn when Joshua brought a ladder and returned Baby Acorn to the branch he lived on. ” “I was so worried about him.”
“You are very welcome,” said Joshua. “I don’t mind helping you and your family out.”
“We certainly appreciate it,” said Mama Acorn.
