MAPLE AND WILLOW TOGETHER is a happy, simple, enjoyable book that kids, especially those with siblings, will love. The interplay of language and art captures the subtleties of the relationship between the two sisters as they play, fight, and mend their relationship and gives the reader plenty to talk about. The great thing is that, though the reader assumes a parent must have intervened in the fight, no adult ever appears. This is the sisters' story, and they resolve the issue.

Straightforward, expressive text is perfectly complemented by the delicate yet strong pencil illustrations, which are digitally colored. This book celebrates sisterly love, nature, imagination, and independence. It's the perfect book for kids of all ages. And parents reading it aloud will fall in love with these two little sisters and their sweetness.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
