This historical fictions starts off by talking about how old the Redwoods are and how the dinosaurs occupied that land. We are informed that the Redwood trees are the tallest living thing on the planet and can live for 2,000 years. The trees are so wide at 29 feet it can be used for a car tunnel. Red woods can sprout from old stumps. They introduce s to the idea of tannin. A chemical that helps the trees fight off infections and infestations helping it live so long. Redwoods are very good at defending themselves. They can even live through fire! This book contains endless facts about the Redwoods as a boy travels through it. It would be great to use this in a lesson during the primary grades.

Again, another fantastic book by Jason Chin. In Redwoods, Chin tells about the history of the Redwoods of Northern California and how important they are to their location. I love how he explains how they grow and how they can sometimes create their own artificial rain to continue to grow during the dryer months of the year. I also love how in his illustrations he has a young boy reading this very book and escaping into his imagination of the Redwoods. Very creative.

This nonfiction book teaches young readers about important real life facts. For example, in this book it starts with a little boy riding a subway and he finds a book about the Redwood forest. He becomes very interested about the forest and decides to travel all the way there and climb into a redwood canopy. This book has a good moral or lesson because it teaches children about adventure and persevering for their dreams and goals. It is also a good book to read because it is based upon real life facts and you can incorporate it into your classroom by then transitioning into a lesson about the redwood forest.

This book had interesting illustrations. The book was along the same lines as the The Red Book. It was a fun way of showing the information being passed along. It also gave great facts for the Redwood trees. ( )

This is a very interesting book! It gives a lot of fun facts about redwoods. The book gives detail on the trees height, diameter, and even explain how they get water without rain! Then, at the end of the book it explains how the climate has changed since the ice age, and how it has effected the trees tremendously. ( )
