As the leaves fall and the animals go into their homes, I sit and in a nice, warm, and cozy house with nothing to worry about. When it gets colder, the animals wonder if they will survive as I sit and read a book with warmth all around me. As snow comes down the animals fret and worry and I hurry and run outside and play in the snow and make lots of noise. When the night comes the animals snuggle up and sleep as I watch TV and play video games. In the morning the animals search for food and I walk to school. As I think about the differences between me and other animals during the winter, it makes me feel thankful and secure as animals have it hard and rough.
