Description
Here is an example of how April turned her facts and notes into a story...
 
Dig, Wait, Listen: A Desert Toad's Tale begins with the line, "Deep in the desert, under the sand, the spadefoot toad waits. She waits - for the sound of rain."
 
Why is toad waiting underground for rain? April's story of the desert toad provides the answer to this question.
