A sweet little story of five mice getting ready for the winter. While the other four are busy collecting food to help sustain them, Frederick is soaking in the sunshine, colors, and words from the world around them. When the food runs out, he cheers his friends by sharing the memories of these things with his friends.

Although I liked this story, part of me could just not get past the fact that he didn't help them out, and that if he did, they might not have run out of food in the first place. Silly, I know.
