What It Is

In Sequoia, by Tony Johnston and illustrated by Wendell Minor, the tall ancient Sequoia tree stands above the forest and sees all. His leafy arms house the woodland creatures, and he has seen the changing of the years and the times. From the sunset to the changing of the seasons, Sequoia stretches his arms out and welcomes life.
