I picked this one up just based on the cover thinking it would be a good autumn read. It's actually more of a "nature book" talking about the life of a maple tree from seed to sapling to being planted in the child narrator's back yard. There's some info in the back discussing different aspects of the maple tree. This would be a good seasonal tie-in to science curriculum, perhaps, though I didn't find it an especially engaging read.

Kathryn I would have loved to grow up around maples! :-)

Lisa Vegan Hmm. I think I'm going to try it. I've liked other books by her.

I also would have loved to grow up around maples, especially if we'd tapped them for maple syrup. ;-)

Ronyell Great review Kathryn! I agree with you that this was not one of the best books but it was pretty interesting knowing about how to grow a maple tree!

Kathryn Yes, I thought it was good as an informational book but not so much as a story.

Ronyell Yeah, I didn't think that the story was that interesting.
