The family members are dressed in modern clothes, but their practice is an old one, as is their equipment. Haas' writing is excellent, and Smith's evocative watercolor paintings vividly render the crisp outdoor cold, which contrasts with the steamy indoor warmth in the boiling shed. Nora's generosity toward the horses is reminiscent of biblical admonitions for people to care for their animals that serve them (Deuteronomy 25:4; Proverbs 12:10). The relational bond between grandparents and grandchild is nearly tangible, and Nora's participation in this exciting grown-up work is an excellent example of the privileges that come with responsibility. This is an excellent story for helping children understand how maple syrup is made.
Plenty of detail is given regarding the sugar making process, which is why I picked up the book from the library.
The illustrations aren't quite as detailed as other maple sugaring books but they are just as delightful. And most New Englanders will be thrilled to see that Gramps wears a blue baseball cap with a distinct "B" in the middle (that's Boston Red Sox, in case you didn't know).
