It’s syrup season in maple and snow country. We live in a non-snow area so we don’t benefit from this spring rite of passage, but we have been reading about it this time of year for a couple years with Lukas. We use more syrup this time of year to emphasize that it is sap season (any excuse for eating more maple syrup, right?)
We have also made it an annual tradition to read this beautiful book, discovered at the library. I love this book. It makes us all want to move back east and make maple syrup! The illustrations are exciting, full of animals and colors and maple syrup action!
