Your kids will enjoy this great reading of Redwoods, by Jason Chin, narrated by Deborah Zierten, the League’s Education & Interpretation Manager. Deborah chose this book specifically because it’s both fun and teaches a lot of great lessons about the giant trees.

  1. Create a redwood forest art project.
  2. If you visited a redwood forest what would you want to explore?  
  3. Learn about three animals that live in the redwoods through our redwood forest facts page.  
  4. Create a word collage of words you heard in the book. It is OK if you don’t remember what they mean, you can look them up in a dictionary. Draw a picture of what the word means.

    I am a teacher, and have taught outdoor classes in the Redwoods quite a bit. I love this story. It is a very interesting and beautifully illustrated book that is quite informative for adults as well as children. I have a good friend who is a great friend of the Redwoods, and she created a children’s book about the Redwoods that is also beautifully illustrated and educational. Would you like to see her book? She is a teacher who lives in Boulder Creek, CA and is one of the most wonderful and caring people, and is also a huge supporter of Redwoods. Thank you for all that you are doing. My day is enriched by your great website and everything you do. When I get my income up to where it was before Covid 19, I will donate. Thank you!
