Trout Are Made of Trees
April Pulley Sayre, Illustrated by Kate Endle
Trout Are Made of Trees by April Pulley Sayre and Kate Endle, published by Charlesbridge Trout are made of trees. In fall, trees let go of leaves, which swirl and twirl and slip into streams. They ride in a rush above rocks and over rapids. They snag and settle soggily down. Bacteria feed on the leaves. Algae grow, softening surfaces.
