Product Description
Operation Redwood by S. Terrell French is a great story for upper elementary and middle school students. Julian Carter-Li, a twelve year old from San Francisco, hatches a plan with two friends to save an ancient redwood grove. This is an engaging and entertaining story that can be a fabulous supplement to a unit on ecology or redwoods. I highly recommend it to fans of From the Mixed-up Files of Basil E. Frankenweiler by E.L. Konigsburg, Holes by Louis Sachar, or Hoot by Carl Hiaasen.

This book makes a wonderful novel unit for the whole class or for small reading groups. It works well with fifth, sixth and seventh grade independent reading levels and can be easily used as a read aloud or for advanced literature circles in fourth and fifth grades.

**Note: the first answer page at the end of the document contains duplicate answers, which unfortunately I can't swap due to an adobe 'update'. The corrected page is the first page of the doc.
