Margaret Carney has taken me back many years with her writing. I remember the fresh maple surup candy that I used to get in the New England area. This story can demonstrate to students a way that children in different areas can help their family. It is also a wonderful book to share at the beginning of spring if you are in an area, or going to an area, that produces maple surup. I miss the woods and smells at that time of year (O.K. so I miss the maple sugar candy most). Enjoy this book and try to find time to visit an area that produces maple sugar.
