At Grandpa's Sugar Bush Paperback – April 1, 1997
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

PreSchool-Grade 1?In a clear, simple text, the author tells the story of a young boy and his grandfather enjoying their annual rite of making maple syrup on grandfather's farm in Canada. They drill the holes in the trees, gather the sap in buckets (no plastic tubing here), and cook it over an open fireplace. They enjoy tasting the sap, smelling its sweetness in the air as it cooks, and, finally, pouring the tasty syrup on grandma's pancakes. The realistic, brightly colored oil paintings glow with the beauty of the woods in early spring, and with the pleasure these two share in being together. The illustrations follow the process of making the syrup as it is described in the narrative, making it accessible to young children. This book is similar to Jessie Haas's Sugaring (Greenwillow, 1996). Together or separately, these books describe well a beloved family tradition in northern rural life.?Virginia Golodetz, Children's Literature New England, Burlington, VT

Ages 3^-8. A young boy on his spring vacation travels to his grandparents' Ontario farm to help with sugaring season. Naturalist Carney details the wildlife found in the maple forest (including foxes, weasels, and pileated woodpeckers) and describes the steps involved in making maple syrup. Although the process takes many arduous hours over several days, the end result--fresh maple syrup on pancakes--is well worth the wait. Wilson's oil paintings convey the natural beauty of the sugar bush and emphasize the camaraderie between the boy and his grandfather during the details of sugaring. Similar to Jessie Haas' Sugaring (1996), this will be a useful addition to spring story hours. Listeners who want more specifics about the process may prefer Diane Burns' Sugaring Season (1990).
