Overview

Sugarbush Spring by Marsha Wilson Chall, Jim Daly

In the month of the Maple Sugar Moon, the snow's too wet for angel making, icicles rain from Grandpa's porch roof, and something is stirring in the woods. It's sugarbush spring—time to tap the trees, prepare the bottles, then gather round the cook fire to eat chicken and dumplings, roast marshmallows, and tell stories while the cold sap heats through, thickens, and boils to make syrup.

Chall's timeless story and Daly's glowing paintings invite children to share in the pleasure of making maple syrup—a process that's the same today as it was two hundred years ago.In the month of the Maple Sugar Moon, icicles rain from Grandpa's porch roof and something is stirring in the woods.

Rare times, good memories. Storytelling art as well as words. Give children a glimpse of living off the land; how the family turned work into enjoyment as they processed maple syrup. If your child thinks beans grow in grocery store cans and milk is made in the super market back room, then this is the book for you.
