Thoughtful Thursday

Maple by Lori Nichols is a story about a little girl named Maple. When she was born, her parents planted a maple tree in her honor.  She loves her tree. This story is mostly about Maple and the maple.  But near the end Willow comes into the picture.
The illustrations for this book were rendered in pencil on Mylar and then digitally colored.  The soft coloring is lovely.  Green is the dominant color.  The delicate drawings are so sweet.  You can watch the seasons go by with Maple playing with her namesake.  
This title is perfect for the youngster that is going to be a big brother or sister soon.
