Ilua the ground squirrel loves nothing more than to relax on the cool tundra and nibble on some freshly picked berries. Her family, on the other hand, is always telling her to hurry up, to scurry here or there, but Ilua prefers to move at her own pace.
With winter fast approaching, it will soon be time for Ilua and all the other squirrels to burrow deep underground to hibernate. There is lots to get done before the family can hunker down, and if Ilua relaxes for too long, she may just be left out of the den in the cold.
