Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Elizabeth McAllister, Ph D
This is an excellent science-information book for students. It tracks the growth of the great sequoia trees, parts of the tree, and the death of a sequoia tree. The photographs by Staub show the natural groves on the western side of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The text is informative and easy-to-read. Included is a section "On Sharing a Book" for adults to use to develop vocabulary, answer questions, and activities that can be enjoyed by families.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-In this photo-filled nature book, children get a grand picture of the largest living trees in the world. Wadsworth provides a sharply focused and visually captivating portrayal of the parts, the environment, the life cycle, and the death of a sequoia. The clear, full-color photographs provide graphic illustration of the size and complexity of these mammoth trees. Through simple but carefully constructed explanations, the interconnected nature of the plants, animals, and natural events (forest fires, precipitation, etc.) that allow the sequoias to continue to prosper give useful insights into their future survival. Adults will appreciate the ``On Sharing a Book'' section, a feature of this series, which gives hints about how to use the book effectively with children.-Steve Matthews, Foxcroft School, Middleburg, VA
