In central Vermont March is a time between the seasons, this is “sugaring time,” when the sap begins to flow in the maple grove or sugarbush, as it is called. This book shows a real family, Alice and Don Lacey and their 3 children, who live on a farm that has a small sugarbush. In words and photos, it describes how they ride out on horse-drawn sleighs to tap the maple trees, hang buckets on them to collect the sap, then boil the sap in a big tank to make maple syrup. Then Don puts some of the syrup into a small glass jar for grading. Readers will smell the syrup bubbling, imagine the first taste of fingers dipped into buckets, and be impressed by the sight of wide expanses of bright snow surrounding the maple grove. A Newbery Honor Book and an ALA Notable Book.
