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.
