Audience: Preschool - 8th Grade
The book cutely starts out with a boy finding a copy of this very book lying on a subway bench. The facts about redwood trees literally come alive as the boy reads them in the book. My favorite example of this is when the boy comes face to face with a real redwood tree at the bottom of the subway steps. This book truly conveys how amazing these trees are. Did you know that plants that grow on redwoods are called epiphytes? 'In one tree, researchers found a mass of ferns weighing more than 1,600 pounds-that's heavier than a full-grown bear!' Many more intriguing facts about redwood trees are presented in this book.
