Martin and Sylvia’s friends have a mountain cabin in the woods. The whole family is invited to join them for a weekend of blackberry picking! Everyone is excited to hike the many trails to the lake and waterfall, except Sylvia. Sylvia is tired. Sylvia’s feet hurt. Sylvia would rather stay at the cabin and play games. When Momma teaches her how to have ‘fox feet’ and ‘deer ears’ Sylvia suddenly finds the woods full of possibilities and indeed, animals.
