Jimmie the squirrel was always on his phone or tablet. He was too busy to notice his friends. Would they still care about him?
Jimmie the Squirrel loved spending time on his phone and tablet. He would spend hours using technology and barely noticed the world around him. He started to neglect his friends and stopped visiting them.
“I love my phone! It’s so much fun to see what’s happening all the time,” Jimmie said.
One day, Jimmie’s phone stopped working. His tablet was broken too. He tried everything to fix them, but they wouldn’t work. “Oh no! My phone and tablet aren’t working. What should I do?” he said.
Jimmie decided he needed to get help. He wanted to call his friends and ask them what to do. Then, he realized he couldn’t remember his closest friends’ names. Plus, he couldn’t call them because his phone was broken! He started to panic. Would his friends still care about him after all the time he neglected them? Jimmie rushed out of his squirrel nest and ran to see his chipmunk friends.
“I’m sorry I haven’t visited you in a long time,” he said. “Can you help me? My phone and tablet are broken and I can’t figure out how to fix them.
To his surprise, his chipmunk friends were glad to see him. They calmed him down and gave him a snack. They fixed his phone and tablet without asking for anything in return. They said they just wanted him to be happy. Jimmie realized that true friendships are more valuable than technology.
