William’s Winter Nap
William is ready to go to sleep on a cold winter night. He has had his hot chocolate, he has fluffed up his pillow, and he tucks himself under the covers, but is suddenly wide awake when something taps on his window. It is Squirrel, and he asks to come in from the cold. William says there’s room for two and invites Squirrel in. They settle down and say their good nights when there is a knocking at the door. Another woodland creature asks if there is room inside for him, and William and Squirrel scooch over a bit and make room. This goes on until four creatures have joined William in his bed. Then a big booming comes from the door. Who can that be?
