Charlesbridge Unplugged #13: Carrie A Pearson

Today we're in conversation with author Carrie Pearson about her picture book Stretch to the Sun: From a Tiny Sprout to the Tallest Tree on Earth and how she came to write about the tallest tree in the world. You can have a listen by clicking HERE or clicking play below:

About the Book:
The tallest known tree on earth is located in Redwood National Park in northern California. More than twelve hundred years old, it is approximately 380 feet tall--and still climbing!

The tree in this book sprouted, flourished, and survived ecological threats for over twelve hundred years before being discovered by tall-tree researchers. The coast redwood tree provides a unique ecosystem for the many plants and animals in its tree canopy and managed to survive extensive harvesting by loggers nearby. Discovered in 2006, the tree's location is kept secret to protect it.

About the Authors:
Carrie Pearson is a former early elementary teacher and the author of A Warm Winter Tail and A Cool Summer Tail. She hikes, bikes, runs, skis, windsurfs, kayaks, and swims--and writes about what she experiences. Carrie lives in Marquette, Michigan, with her husband and their three daughters.
