At Grandpa's Sugar Bush Summary


At Grandpa's Sugar Bush by ,Margaret Carney

Alongside his grandpa, a young boy shares the tasks involved in making maple syrup the old-fashioned way. From tapping the trees to boiling the sap, the two spend many hours working side by side in the woods. Their reward is a delicious breakfast of pancakes and ?the best syrup in the whole world.?

This is more than a story about syrup-making. It is the story of the grandfather's bond with nature and how he transfers this feeling to his grandson. Janet Wilson's rich oil paintings capture all the signs of spring's arrival in the sugar bush and the loving relationship between the boy and his grandpa.

At Grandpa's Sugar Bush Reviews


Even in the fairly monochromatic late winter bush, Janet has carefully introduced bursts of color to make her illustrations come alive. The gently told tale and realistic oils both combine to highlight the love, caring and tradition that are evident throughout this family's winter work.--North Halton Compass
