A Newbery Honor Book. By Kathryn Lasky with photographs by Christoper G. Knight.
Wonderful black and white photos illustrate the family story of sugaring with draft horses, buckets, and an old-time sugarhouse. A great read and adventure for children ages 8 to 12.
The smell of syrup bubbling, the first taste of fingers dipped into buckets, and the sight of wide expanses of bright snow surrounding the maple grove will stay with readers for a long time.
