Here, in warm prose and vivid watercolors, Heather relives her visits to Aunt Sylvia's cabin, season by season. You and your children will accompany Aunt Sylvia and Heather and her brother Toby as they gather pieces of semiprecious green, pink, and black Maine tourmaline at an abandoned quarry, make a colorful leaf mobile to hang in the window, coat pinecones with peanut butter and hang them outside for the chickadees, pick a basket of delicious fiddleheads, and discover treasures at a Maine flea market.
