Kid Quote: Bread Tree

We were on a field trip a while ago, at Westmoreland Park. There are hundreds of ducks that live there, likely scavengers to humans that don't want to encourage the ducks to find their own food. We told our kids not to touch or feed the birds. One of our 6 year old boys was digging a hole in the ground.

"You want to know something?" he asked me as I peered across the playground.

"What?" I responded.

"If I had a bread seed, I would plant it in this hole. Then I would water it and it would become a big huge bread tree and then I'd chop it down and then the ducks would have lots of bread to eat," he explained.

"Yes! That would be so awesome!" I laughed.
