In this cozy picture book-about a modern-day family in New England collecting sap to make maple syrup- two young brothers take pride in finally being able to help with every step of the sugaring-off process. Nan Rossiter's beautiful illustrations are infused with the light of early spring, and there are woodland animals and birds to spot on every page. An afterword explores the legendary beginnings of sap gathering and broadens the usefulness of the book.
