lumberjack mackNot so long ago, in a village very close to here.
Was a forest filled with birds, raccoon, and deer.

A burly woodsman who piles firewood by the stack.

lumberjack mackNow old man winter blew in, it was a very cold breeze.
“If I don’t do something,” Mack declared “I swear I’ll Freeze!”

Down fell one mighty tree!

    I like the use of numbers and repetition along with learning about uses for wood, but most important a nice lesson about ensuring we replenish what we take.
