It's March, and winter has just lost its bite. Ethan and Seth can't wait for tomorrow -it's time to gather the sap and make the first bottle of maple syrup. Winner of the 1999 Golden Sower Award and author of an American Bookseller Pick of the Lists, Nan Parson Rossiter unfolds a charming tale about a family working together. An afterword about Native American legends and new techniques for collecting sap adds an informative aspect to this already engaging book. Tom Stechschulte's narration captures every scrumptious detail of gathering sap and tasting syrup.

"The Watson family's classic SUGAR ON SNOW now has a modern companion in Rossiter's book of the same title. While knitted caps may give way to baseball hats, the anticipation and delight in participating in the spring ritual of tapping maple trees and transforming the sap into syrup is the same for children of all generations. Rossiter appends her story with information on Native American maple sugaring. Tom Stechschulte distinguishes characters readily. As father, his voice is rich and full with seasoned wisdom. As mother, he hints at the conflict between provider and joyful participant. As the delighted sons, the ritual cannot unfold fast enough. Listen in, and let your mouth water, too! A.R.
