I am so excited to read this beautiful new book!

After visiting the Merced Grove of Sequoia’s in Yosemite this summer, this book is just the thing I need!

If we’re going to categorize it, it is both informational and lyrical. In my mind, that makes it nonfiction. What does the Library of Congress say? It is poetry, and thus would be catalogued and shelved with the poetry.

How can it be used in the classroom? To teach both informational and narrative text types, and the figurative language of poetry. It could be used to teach research, and how research can be presented in a variety of ways.
