5 out of 5 stars

This is a really sweet book about a girl who loves nature. Her parents plant a maple tree when she is born, and name her after the tree. This young Maple looking through the leavesgirl loves spending time outside with her tree, and develops such a compassionate nature under its calming leaves. The illustrations, especially of Maple laying on the ground gazing up through the leaves, are just beautiful.

A second book, Maple and Willow Together, has just been released.  Here is the book trailer:
