Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 3—In quiet, lyrical text, Johnston personifies a giant sequoia tree and brings it to life. Readers follow the tree through the seasons: "Summers, from his post above lower trees, he sniffs the breeze. Sometimes he feels the very heat, shimmering everywhere…Autumns, among shifting drifts of leaves, he feels a chill entering his bones." Minor's luminous goauche paintings successfully capture the grandeur of these trees with dramatic shifts in perspective, from standing at the base of the tree gazing up to perching near the canopy, looking over the forest. Numerous animals that make their homes among the sequoias are shown in the illustrations, but not all are mentioned in the text. Though this is more of a poetic introduction than a research source, a one-page note at the end explains the difference between sequoias and their coastal cousins the redwoods, identifies threats to the trees, and includes a helpful range map. VERDICT Teachers may want to use this title to demonstrate the use of figurative language or pair it with Jason Chin's Redwoods (Roaring Brook, 2009) for a unit on California giants.—Jackie Partch, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR

“A giant sequoia experiences the world around "him" in Johnston's romantic, image-laden, anthropomorphic rendering of the life experiences of the largest tree on the planet.” ―Kirkus Reviews
