Cassandra's Review-  I was able to snuggle down and read this book outloud to my family.  It is sweet and calming.  While I could not get my family to sleep, it was a very nice book to share.  Any age would really enjoy this but the younger kids might like it the most.

Cassandra's Review-- The book is literally packed with facts and mushrooms. It has really small text/font so there is a ton of information on each page and the book is thick.  I would say that it accurately covers everything you would need to know about the mushrooms of the redwood coast and even a few trees.
