Book Sharing Monday :: Redwoods

Written and illustrated by Jason Chin, this beautiful book called "Redwoods" is a mixture of fantasy and non-fiction. A boy discovers a lost book in the subway and as he is reading it, he discovers many interesting facts about the Redwoods. When he exits the subway, he is transported in the forest itself. We all loved seeing the illustrations and learning more about the California Redwoods. Now we all hope to see them on day!

"In the summer, when there is much less rainfall, redwoods have an ingenius way of collecting water: they make their own rain!"
