In Winter
By Cindy Grigg
  

1     Jill and her mom were walking outside. They were taking their dog Sparky for a walk. They were wearing coats. The wind was blowing. It blew brown leaves off the trees. The leaves tumbled and twirled in front of them.
 
2     "Winter is coming," said Mama.
 
3     "Mama, where do the leaves go in winter?"
 
4     "The leaves fall off the trees. They fall on the ground. Snow may cover them up. Later, they will be part of the soil."
 
5     "Why do the leaves fall off?" asked Jill.
 
6     "The trees rest for the winter. When spring comes, trees grow new leaves. There is more sunlight in the spring and summer. Trees use sunlight to make their food," said Mama.
 
7     Jill saw some flowers. Their stems were bent. Their petals drooped. Some petals had already fallen off. The wind blew the petals away. "Will the flowers be part of the soil, too?" she asked.
 
8     "Yes, some parts of the flowers will," said her mother. "But the flowers' seeds will wait until spring. When spring comes, the seeds will grow into new flower plants."
