I like the drawings by Beatrix Potter of squirrels, especially red ones. I like squirrels because they climb and I like climbing too. I love watching squirrels because they are so furry, and you can watch them eating. In my drawing my squirrel is about to eat an acorn and he's very pleased. I drew the colourfull rainbow because it makes the squirrel stand out. I particularly liked drawing the hands and feet, and I drew it so big so people could see him clearly. Squirrels are sad when people cut down trees.
