Maple & Willow Together by Lori Nichols -- ESSENTIAL

Nichols, Lori Maple & Willow Together. PICTURE BOOK. Nancy Paulsen Books (Penguin), 2014. $16.99. Content: G.

Maple and Willow are sisters. They love each other, play together endlessly, and have their own secret language. They also fight. But as this book shows, love can triumph over anger, and a sister really can be the perfect best friend and playmate.

While this is a follow-up to Maple, it stands on its own perfectly. The story is heart-warming, with a good lesson about forgiveness, and the illustrations are adorable. A great addition to the shelves, especially for students with complicated sibling relationships of their own.

Pre-K, EL (K-3) -- ESSENTIAL. Reviewer: Caryn
