JACK FROST AND THE NUTS

 Little Miss Chestnut and her two sisters lived up in a tree in a  prickly green house. The house was as soft as velvet inside, but sharp  spikes on the outside kept away the squirrels, who would have torn down the house if they could.
 But soon Jack Frost came along. Jack does not mind fences, so he  knocked at the door of the Chestnut house.
 “Little Miss Chestnut,” he called, “are you ready to come out?”
 But little Miss Chestnut replied, “I am not quite ready yet, Mr. Jack.”
 So Jack went off to the house where Miss Hickory Nut lived. Miss  Hickory Nut lived all alone in a round green cottage.
 “Miss Hickory Nut,” he called “are you ready to come out?”
 But Miss Hickory Nut replied, “I am not quite ready yet, Mr. Jack.”
 So Jack went off to the low bush where Miss Hazel Nut lived in a soft  green tent. Miss Hazel Nut was already peeping out.
 “Miss Hazel Nut,” he called, “are you ready to come out?”
 And little Miss Hazel Nut replied, “I am quite ready, Mr. Jack.”
 So she dropped down and waited below the bush, while Jack went back  after the other nuts.
 Jack knocked once more at the chestnut house. Little Miss Chestnut  opened the door so quickly that she and her sisters fell to the ground. Then Jack knocked once more at the hickory house.
 Miss Hickory Nut opened the door so quickly that her house fell apart.  And all the other nut houses opened, and all the nuts came out to see  what was the matter.
 The next day the children went for a walk. As they walked in the woods  they spied the nuts.
 “See,” they said, “the frost has opened the chestnut burrs, and all  the other nuts must be out of the shucks.”

 What does Jack Frost do?
