    1. I remember reading this book in elementary school and it having a big impression on me. Decades later, I found a copy at my son's elementary school library (the book is out of print and used copies are >$40 on ). I just re-read it, and it is still as wonderful as I remember it.


    2. Many thanks to BRENDA for finding the title of this book that I last read in 4th grade (1967-1968), when it was included in a Scott Foresman advanced reader (so I have learned from a customer review on amazon by a former elementary school teacher who remembers the book). This is an amazing book. The story, and the soft, gray pencil llustrations by the author(s), were as I remembered them to be. That a Sequoia, California Redwood, can live for thousands of years is truly amazing -- and true! I le [...]


    3. This is one of my all time favorite kids books. I read this book of my mothers when I was a kid--and learned subtley about the natural world--things like fire resistant bark, eagle pairs, forest habitat, ecology, evolutionary biology, history, etc. I also liked the small images in the top that would show what the humans were doing when Wawona as a young sapling, a tall tree,etc. Oh and there are some great drawings. Especially the book jacket, but the entire book has cute little drawings of "a s [...]


    4. Genre: Contemporary Realistic FictionGrade Range: 4-6Review:I was not a huge fan of this book. It was very long and wordy. I feel like it was not interesting enough to keep a student's attention since it barely kept mine. However, if a student has a huge interest in trees, this could be a very cool book for them. The moral of the story is good, so it could be good for a study on trees or Wawona specifically.


    5. Somewhat wordy, but an engaging story of one of the greatest trees and the animals that lived near it in California. Beautiful pictures. Some of the facts presented are questionable - the book says the tree is at least 5,000 years old, but other sources say 2,300 (some other trees have been dated as over 4,000). It is claimed that it is the oldest in the world, but other sources say some bristlecone pine trees are older. No mention is made of the tunnel made in the tree in 1881. And, of course, [...]
