Maple Syrup: Spring's First Treat
In February, sunshine begins to awaken the sugar maple trees in New York. Down in the ground, roots begin to send water up to the sweetness stored just under the tree bark. Come along with Evan and his family as they tap the tree trunks, collect the sap in metal pails, and cook it into a sweet, golden syrup—spring’s first treat. Illustrated with colorful photographs on every page.
