Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The maple syrup we pour on our pancakes has a long and interesting journey prior to its arrival in grocery stores. This Level B book in the "Yellow Umbrella Books" series describes that process in only ninety-nine words so that even the earliest of readers will know how maple syrup is made. Before the snow is even off the ground, the men and women responsible for the syrup can be seen hard at work in the book's color photographs. The Spanish text explains how they make small holes in maple trees so the sap can emerge from spouts and drip into waiting buckets. The sweet sap is a favorite for animals as well as humans. Once the farmers have collected all the sap they can, their next task is to boil it. Soon the sweet smell of maple fills the air and the finished syrup fills the bottles ready to be put on the table. This book would make a good addition to any elementary library collection or could easily be read aloud to children as a general interest feature. Back matter includes a glossary and an index. 2005, Capstone Press, Ages 4 to 7.
