Very detailed and colorful illustrations, as the reader learns about a chipmunk's day. The reader learns how the chipmunk gathers food to save for winter. Her expandable cheeks can store the seeds for winter. The sentences are very descriptive, "She scampers through crisp golden leaves over the yard." "Her cheeks stretch like balloons as she adds more seeds." The back of the book tells about the eastern chipmunk and has a glossary of the new vocabulary words introduced in the story.
