This Story is an adaptation of a poem written by Valarie Cox called The Cookie Thief.
In this nature tale a busy red squirrel is out gathering nuts when she encounters a hungry stranger who dips his paw into her bag and eats all of her sweet nuts. In a furious rage she runs home only to make a discovery that changes everything!
After listening to this story consider the following questions:
Have you ever been accused of doing something that you simply didn't do? How did it make you feel?
If the squirrel had returned to find the 'kind squirrel' what do you think she would have said?
The squirrel on the rock committed a selfless act of kindness by sharing its nut's. Can you recall a time when you have been kind to others? Or, a tie when others have been kind to you?
Plan an act of kindness to brighten somebody's day.
