From Maple Tree to Syrup

By Melanie Mitchell

This is in an excellent series of books depicting the various plant and animal sources of food and fibers from plants and animals. As an early reader book, the content is minimal but fairly accurate. Each page has one to five sentences. The major flaw in the book is that the images of collecting sap are all with buckets- the old-fashioned way to do this. One picture depicts the modern system, but it needs to be addressed. The best feature of this book is that it shows a newly planted sugar bush that is not more than a year or two old. This fosters the concept of trees as a renewable resource. The book ends with a glossary.
