A bouncy, baby, black-striped skunk,
Saw a leafless brown tree trunk,
Daddy, daddy, tell me please,
Why certain trees have no leaves…
Some trees are bare,
All their leaves,
Have felled and falled…
Took a look,
Opening his science book,
Says right here,
Plain to see,
Deciduous…a type of tree…
Trees whose leaves will drop and fall,
Is what they’re called…
Watch Mr. R.’s Deciduous Tree Song

Deciduous trees are trees that lose their leaves during certain parts of the year.
In temperate regions, it is common for leaves to drop in the fall and winter. In tropical areas it is common for leaves to fall in the dry season.
Trees drop their leaves so they use less water (water evaporates from leaves) and also to survive through harsh seasons.
