Title: Maple and Willow Together Author and Illustrator: Lori Nichols Published: November 4th 2014 by Nancy Paulsen Books Format: Hardcover, 32 pages Genre: Children's Ages: Age Level: 3 - 5 | Grade Level: P - K
I fell in love with Maple the first time I was introduced to her by Lori Nichols. Now I get to re-experience that joy with Maple and Willow Together.
This time around, Maple has a little sister that is both her best friend and the leading frustration in her life. Together they play and discover, but at the same time, Maple has a tendency to be a bit bossy but Willow adapts until she can no longer take it and fights back. The repercussions of this are what neither wants so they meet in the middle and once again, the sisters are best friends and cannot bear to be apart.
The illustration are stunning and your young reader will love looking at them and telling their own story.
There is a third book coming in August 2015 that will continue this wonderful story, and I cannot wait to see what these two will be up to next.
