    An innovative "non-fiction" picture book following a boy's journey through the science of the redwoods. A lot of information is packed into this little book, but the illustrations make it easy to digest and even fun. I love how the boy becomes so immersed in what he is reading that he actually finds himself in a redwood forest! There is a "conservation message" attached to the book, but it's not overly didactic and more emphasis is placed on how cool these trees are and how it would be great for [...]

    Is it easier to write an excellent work of fiction than an excellent work of non-fiction? It’s sort of a trick question. Still, I’d argue that a poor work of fiction is going to appeal to a child more immediately than a poor work of non-fiction. Hand a kid a terrible picture book and they’re going to at least give it a glance. But hand them a poor work of non-fiction and what’s their reaction? “Boooooring!” So superior informational books for kids not only have to be interesting and [...]

    I usually don't read picture books but everything about this one, from the illustrations to the morals, was amazing. It's not a classic or anything, but it was still really well-written.

    3.5 out of 5Although I personally prefer Jason Chin's illustrations in his later picturebooks (e.g Island: A Story of the Galápagos, Grand Canyon, or my beloved Water is Water: A Book About the Water Cycle), Redwoods offers a fine blend of informational text and fantastical, engaging, playful, even metafictive images:

    I saw this book mentioned in a discussion about Arbor Day in the Picture-Book Club in the Children's Books Group here at . So, in honor of Arbor Day, we read a few books about trees.This is a fascinating book that ends up being two stories in one. The narrative is a nonfiction description of the Redwood forests in California, telling about the history of the trees, the way the plant grows and the creatures that live within the canopy. But another story unfolds as you read the narrative. It is an [...]

    Redwoods by Jason Chin is a sensational children's book that educates children about coastal redwood trees. Jason Chin combines fantasy with non-fiction which educates children in a fun, uncomplicated, and enjoyable manner. The illustrations are beautiful and there are heaps of facts on redwoods pertaining to size, needs, life span, appearance, defenses, and importance.This is a perfect educational book for schools, libraries, or a home library. Parents can enjoy acquiring an education about red [...]

    Excellent, excellent book! I'd love to see more nonfiction books in this style. Here's the rundown: text is typical nonfiction; lots of facts about redwood trees. But the illustrations tell a story of a little boy picking up a book and then traveling to a redwood forest in his imagination and climbing around in the trees. I loved it!

    A boy discovers the glory of the ancient redwoods when he stumbles across a book about the trees while riding the subway. Well-researched and beautifully illustrated.

    Redwoods by Jason Chin is a wonderful informational text for upper elementary schools students. The beginning starts off discussing the life cycle of a Redwood tree (how they grow, how long they've been around, and the types of environments they need to live in). As the book goes on, the ecosystems that depend on the Redwood for survival are discussed. This includes the many plants and animals that live and grow in Redwood trees which include the endangered Marbled Murrelet. The language is simp [...]

    A boy waiting for the subway finds a book on redwood trees on the bench next to him. As he becomes immersed in the information, the world around him changes until he finds himself in the middle of a redwood forest. Through the boy’s eyes readers will get to repel to the top of the redwood crowns, stand on enormous stumps, and view the redwoods compared to a city skyline. This book is the epitome of an informational book made accessible and fun. Though the text is primarily factual, the illustr [...]

    Redwoods was absolutely jam packed with fascinating facts about redwood trees, but the information was all presented in a way that was not overwhelming to kids. I was impressed with how Jason Chin was able to capture the extraordinarily interesting facts about these beings, and convey the absolute awe-inspiring majesty of these trees. When I read this book to myself before reading it to the kids, I was completely absorbed by it. I spent time with this book! After I read this to my niece and neph [...]

    This book has quickly become one of our favorites! We are nature lovers, so I was excited when my daughter picked this book up at the library. It's a fun, imaginative book full of lots of information about redwoods. It led us to do our own research on redwoods because my daughter had so many great questions after reading this book! I am getting ready to use it in a lesson for my classroom as well. If you're a nature lover like we are or even if you just like a good book, this is the book for you [...]

    What a great book to add to your shelf. I like this book because it is a story within a story. The author found a great way to introduce the lose of redwood trees. The redwood trees are an important concept to add to your science lesson plans. It is a simplistic concept that can easily be age appropriate and full of activities like: planting their own trees, drawing pictures of the leaves, or starting tree club.

    Part fantasy and part nonfiction, Redwoods is a terrific picture book. A young boy (Asian--a nice change) is reading the book on the subway, and what he reads becomes real outside his window. Great facts about Redwoods--I really didn't know much about them except they were old and tall, and a fun way to tell it.

    Gwen the Librarian
    Facts about redwood trees are shared in a narrative format, spread throughout beautiful watercolor illustrations. The concept is really neat, with a boy reading a book about redwoods that comes alive around him and replaces the cityscape of New York with rainforest. The concept, layout, and color scheme is reminiscent of Barbara Lehman's wordless books.

    This book brings back memories of visiting the Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve. My children have walked amongst the redwoods and they were in awe at the height of the trees much like the young boy in this book. My 8 year old son really enjoyed the abundance of scientific information that was contained in this beautifully illustrated book.

    Danielle
    What I love best about this book is how it shows the ability of a book, of learning, to fully transport us.I also love that where we're transported is the incredible redwood forest and includes its importance to so many lives, from that of fungus to endangered animals and us.

    Kristin
    Lauren and I read this book last night - AMAZING! Lauren stopped me in the middle and said, "Mommy, this is a really good book - I am learning a lot!" So true - even Tim sat down and listened while we finished it. I would buy this book! Thanks for the recommendation Cass!

    Read with the White family. Makes me want to go see them for myself again.b 4/5/16

    I purchased this book or my granddaughter upon visiting the Redwoods. It provided excellent information and prompted her to become interested in preserving the redwood forests.

    Katie
    A wonderful choice for the Kindergarten and up crowd, especially as they are learning about the amazing world of the Redwoods.

    Reminds me ofThe Red Book in that the book pulls the child reader in.The text is straight information on Redwoods, but the pictures tell a much bigger story. The boy finds the book on a bench on a subway platform. As he rides the subway, the window behinds him shows dinosaurs. Then the people beside him turn into Ancient Romans. As he leaves the subway, we see him climbing up into the crown of a redwood. These illustrations give the story a wordless feel, even though you have text, because the t [...]

    I learned so much about redwood trees that I hadn't known before. The fact that new trunks grow right out of the branches and other trees even grow way up there was surprising to me. I really want to go see the redwoods now. The sad end note that tells more about how the trees are disappearing is terrible. I adored the flying squirrel friend and its expressions made me giggle. I liked how Chin has the book affecting a new child at the end. That's how books should be used--passed on and proselyti [...]

    I like the topic and the illustrations are intriguing. I like how the boy is reading a book about redwoods on the NYC subway and then he’s transported to the west coast where the trees are. I also like that it puts the redwoods in context and shows how the largest redwood is six stories higher than the Statue of Liberty and how it would fit right in next to a skyscraper. I’ve never seen redwoods in person, but the pictures can make me envision how big they are pretty well. I also like the co [...]

    A book within a book One little boy's subway trip is completely transformed as he reads deeper into the knowledge that the book holds. This book is full of interesting and accurate information. I really enjoyed this read. It was fun, entertaining, and full of knowledge about the redwood forests. The illustrations were beautifully done. I would use this book in a therapy session due to how informative it could be for a client. Maybe even possibly using it for a client who had a love for trees, an [...]

    What a great book!  Chin is the best at nonfiction books for children--I honestly wish I had them as a kid.  I can definitely say that if they were around when I was younger, I would've been a lot more interested in science.  This book is jam packed with facts and sources, paired with Chin's beautiful, misty drawings.  I think it's safe to say that it's not just the subway that becomes magical, but reading this book as well.  Review cross-listed here!

    Redwoods is about a boy that finds a book on the subway about redwood trees. He starts to read it while he is on his way home. He uses his imagination to put himself into the scenes of the book, he goes on many adventures. When he is done, he sets the book on a bench for another person to read. I enjoyed how this book had a fun story describing a journey while teaching you about redwoods. It doesn't seem like the average non-fiction book. This book may be used in a classroom to teach the student [...]

    Chin, J. (2009) Redwoods. New York: Roaring Book Press.This book starts with a young boy who finds a book on a subway and during his reading his imagination takes him to the redwood forest where he learns a lot about these giant trees. This book has a way of drawing in a young reader due to the young character that is curious about these trees. In the back of the book the author took the opportunity to explain that they are going extinct.

    Jessie
    The recursiveness of this was cool (we see the main boy and then a girl reading the book), and I thought that helped inspire a sense of wonder. Redwoods don't need that much help -- their massiveness is enough -- but the inclusion of that character means the reader feels like they're adventuring with someone.
