Seriously though, the art is great, the message is sweet, the words and diction roll right along and it's a lovely book
The first line of the book is "Maple loved her name" and every time my daughter shouts out "I love my name too!". It's pretty adorable.
When we go outside my daughter tries to re-enact the book by putting a coat on the trees outside. She thinks it's hysterical. (So do I.) She also is enjoying seeing the leaves on the trees grow from buds this Spring. This is the first year she's been old enough to appreciate that process, and she talks about how it's just like the leaves in the Maple book.
All in all, if you want a nice sweet book to read to your kids about trees, it's a huge hit!
But it's also got a deeper message about welcoming a new baby into the family. My wife and I have used this book to talk to our daughter about becoming a big sister and how that will be a wonderful experience for her. It's been great for that too.

So it was extra special.
Also it was good for teaching English as she is from Taipei
