What a wonderful story! Maple’s parents plant a tree for her when she is born, and the two friends grow up together. The friends enjoy all of the seasons together and enjoy the fact that Maple the girl is loud, while Maple the tree is, well, not. When Maple’s mommy has a baby, the story has an adorable parallel of a Maple tree sapling sprouting up through the soil. The two friends learn to enjoy their new baby sisters together.
