From back cover: "It's March and winter has just begun to lose its bite. Ethan and Seth can't wait for tomorrow -- it's time to gather the sap and make the first bottles of maple syrup. Seth is especially excited for this year's sap run. He may be old enough and big enough to help Dad steer the tractor. And both Ethan and Seth will help empty the buckets of sap into the holding tank. But nothing is better than a sweet reward after a hard day of work." "Winner of the 1999 Golden Sower Award and author of an American Bookseller Pick of the Lists, Nan Parson Rossiter unfolds a charming tale about a family working together. An afterword about Native American legends and new techniques for collecting sap add an informative aspect to this already engaging audiobook. Tom Stechschulte's narration captures every scrumptious detail of gathering sap and tasting syrup."
