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. ( )

The book Redwoods is spectacularly illustrated, and does a beautiful job of marrying the informational text with whimsical illustrations that show the grand scope and history of the Sequoia Redwoods in California. Not only is artwork itself very beautiful and realistic, the illustration actually tells it's own story within and alongside the written text, which is purely non-fiction information about Redwood trees. The art truly illustrates the journey inside the mind of a child as he reads about these marvelous trees for the first time as he takes the subway home in New York City. You can see the twists and turns in the way he interprets and imagines the material only in the illustrations and in a way that you could not gather from the text alone. The story is carried by the illustration, and not vice-versa.

I think this book could use for great discussion in the classroom. This book is a great example of how much inquiry can do for a person! ( )

A boy finds a book about redwoods and as he begins reading finds himself in a redwood forest. He learns basic facts about how these magnificent trees grow and survive, what plants and animals grow and live among them, and how tall they can grow.
