Home For A Muskrat
This school year we have been reading through the Little House series and today we started book #6, The Long Winter. We read about muskrats and how they build their homes very thick if the winter is going to be long and hard. The kids were thrilled that it was a warm day and that when they went outside they would get to make a muskrat home. I told them that all they needed was mud, water, and pine needles. It got me to thinking that it would be great to take them out sometime just before winter next year and look for muskrat homes and see how thick they are.
