Review: Trout Are Made Of Trees by April Pulley Sayre

How can a leaf become a fish? Join two young children and their dads to find out, as they observe life in and around a stream. Energetic collage art and simple, lyrical text depict the ways plants and animals are connected in the food web. Back matter provides information about the trout life cycle as well as conservation efforts that kids can do themselves.

We picked this book up from K's school library.

Reading the title I was kind of like hmmm what exactly is this book about.
When I started reading it, it just didn't seem like a book I probably would have started reading to K. As he didn't seem too interested  in the story.  The only thing he liked was the transformation of the trout from eggs to adults. With this book you follow the circle of life pretty much of how leafs are eaten (which was pretty cool) since I didn't know what animals ate the leaves. 
A good book maybe for the older children as they may get more interested in it being as it seems kind of like science.
