Gray squirrel, gray squirrel swish your bush tail
Wrinkle up your little nose
Hold a nut between your toes
Grey squirrel, gray squirrel swish your bushy tail
Audrey and Ethan love to watch the squirrels run around, chase each other, and swish their bushy tails. This time of year the squirrels are also collecting nuts and storing them for the winter. So Audrey and Ethan did some nut collecting of their own, just like our friends the squirrels.

Our Favorite Squirrel Song:
"These are the brown leaves tumbling down,
And these are the tall trees bare and brown.
This is the squirrel with eyes so bright,
Hunting for nuts with all her might.
This is the hole where day by day,
Nut after nut she stores away.
When winter comes with its cold and storm,
She'll sleep curled up all snug and warm."
