There is a new book up at the GCS StoryWalk! Open to the community outside school hours, located in the field between the school and town office.
Please enjoy Sugarbush Spring by Marsha Wilson Chall and Jim Daly.
Marsha Wilson Chall’s timeless story and Jim Daly’s glowing paintings invite children to share in the pleasure of making maple syrup—a process that’s the same today as it was two hundred years ago.
In the month of the Maple Sugar Moon, the snow’s too wet for angel making, icicles rain from Grandpa’s porch roof, and something is stirring in the woods. It’s sugarbush spring—time to tap the trees, prepare the bottles, then gather round the cook fire to eat chicken and dumplings, roast marshmallows, and tell stories while the cold sap heats through, thickens, and boils to make syrup.
