They are building a large squirrel out of leaves and sticks
and pasting it together with mud.
They call it the Big Squirrel, which is a good name for it,
because there has never been a big squirrel in the forest before,
and all the squirrels know what the name means,
which is what a name is for.
They love the Big Squirrel.
When it is done being built it will wait till it rains,
and when it rains it will come alive,
and it will see the squirrels that built it, and love them,
and it will wade into the river
and the squirrels will ride it down the water, in the rain,
until they are in a new land and the Big Squirrel
washes away and dissolves
into leaves and sticks and mud.
