Maple loves her name. Before she was even born her parents planted a maple tree, so she and her tree could grow up together. When Maple was little, so was the tree. As the tree grew, so did she. She loves to spend time under her tree watching the wind blow the leaves, and in the winter she wraps her coat around her maple's trunk to keep it warm. One day Maple discovers a seedling growing near her tree. Soon she has a baby sister whose name you will discover at the end of this charming picture book about being loved and growing up.
