Chapter One

Once I fell asleep after hiking in the woods.

I just plopped right down on a soft grassy spot. And fell asleep real quick.

While I was asleep I tossed and turned about.

It must have been a billion times before I began to shout.

I woke up real quick and shouted, I shouted really LOUD.

So LOUD in fact, that I heard my ECHO bouncing from a cloud.

I looked around and shook my head and wondered why; Why did I shout?

Had I heard something wandering about?

Then I figured out that I was the ONLY one out here.

It was OK I told myself for there is nothing here to fear.

I looked around just to be sure and yawned a big big yawn.

The only things I saw moving near were colored leaves swirling in the wind.

So I plopped right down on my grassy spot and fell asleep again.

When I woke up, I hiked right up to the top of the grassy hill.

At the top I was way up high near lots of clouds it seemed.

I was so high, so VERY HIGH, it seemed that I should fly.

Then when I looked way far down the grassy hill, I saw a thing, a shiny thing, way down on the ground.

WHAT WAS IT?

WHAT COULD IT BE?

COULD IT BE A TREASURE?

A TREASURE JUST FOR ME?

I hurried down the grassy hill as fast as I could go. And on the way I dropped my things, real quick, I dropped my hiking things.

I dropped my stick, back pack, and my canteen, to help me get there faster.

I was so excited that I almost lost my cap!

I really wanted to see it. I wanted to see the shiny thing. I wanted to see the shiny treasure, that I thought for sure, was treasure just for me.

FINALLY, I was down the hill so I looked all around the ground.

BUT I could not find it. The shiny thing it was nowhere to be found.

It didn't appear to be anywhere, anywhere on the ground. SO I just sat down.

Maybe there was no treasure. Nothing here at all.

Perhaps it got carried away so that I could not have it?

Maybe it was just not meant to be, a treasure just for me.

Well just how could that be?

THEN I SAW IT.

It was quite small, but a treasure it sure was.

However, this treasure this small shiny treasure it was not for me.

The treasure, this small shiny treasure, it was for my friend squirrel.

It was a small shiny acorn.

My friend squirrel, he came over to the grassy hill.

He asked me if I had seen a shiny acorn for he had lost it here by this hill.

I told him that I had seen it from way up near the clouds.

Then I showed him where I found it at the bottom of the hill.

    This book is now my childs favorite. I read it to her at least twice a week. It doesn't do anything particularly new but what it does do, it does exceptionally. Being a children's book, there are no intricate or complicated plot points but it creates a stimulating read. I would recommened this book to any child/parent who is looking for an undiscovered gem that deserves a chance.
