Benches made from fallen trees
Big storms come to Sao Paolo. They knock down more than 1,700 trees. There are fallen trees everywhere. The city leaders don’t know what to do. They ask the people of Sao Paolo.
Hugo Franca is an artist. He talks to the city leaders. He says that he will carve the trees. He will turn them into benches. He will turn them into furniture.
He carves some trees. People use them. They like them! They sit on them. They relax, talk and read on them.
Difficult words: carve (to cut into something to make something new), bench (a wide chair where some people can sit), furniture (things we use to sit on or lay on).
