Sugar White Snow and Evergreens

A Winter Wonderland of Color

Maple-sugaring season is the perfect time to visit a local farm! As a family takes a sleigh ride, they see a bright red cardinal, a snowman with an orange carrot nose, and they learn how tasty amber maple syrup is made. After a morning full of color, they share pancakes and maple syrup in the farmhouse! Felicia Sanzari Chernesky’s cheerful, vibrant verses are accompanied by Susan Swan’s gorgeous collage art.
