Description


Starred Review from Kirkus Reviews From tiny seed to largest tree, the giant sequoia is a living wonder of nature. Numbers fail when trying to describe this ancient and tremendous tree. The giant sequoia begins life as a seed no larger than an oatmeal flake yet can grow as tall as three blue whales stacked chin to tale. The oldest sequoias have lived as long as forty human lifetimes. The largest are so enormous, twenty children holding hands can't wrap their arms around the trunks In evocative text and vibrant paintings, The Sequoia Lives On shares the life story of the giant sequoia, casting light on natural questions: How does this tree grow so big? How does it live so long? An extensive author's note completes the portrait for young readers, inviting them to become the next generation of protectors for the giant sequoia.
