We loved this book! I read it aloud to my 8 year old girl, 5 year old boy, and 3 year old girl. It kept our attention, and we even though it is over 100 pages long we read the whole book in 2 evenings. We loved the family in the book, the value of hard work, and it makes me want to go enjoy the nature of the Redwoods. We will definitely read this book again!

Set in California in the 1870s, this story follows Mike O’Grady and his family as they leave their potato farm to settle in the redwood forest. Ten-year-old Mike is sad to leave his family’s farm, but he soon finds his new home exciting and discovers a love of nature and of drawing. From being threatened by a wounded grizzly bear to discovering waterfalls, Mike’s adventures combine in a fun, wholesome book packed with good messages.
