Early spring is Maple sugaring season in New England, other northern parts of the United States, and Canada. The story, "Help For Nell" and the art work is my original work. The illustrations were made using watercolor techniques and marbling. Then the paper was cut and ripped and made into collage images. This item is currently a fun story that explores the weather of New England and introduces children to some animals that live and work in hardwood forests. This product will be updated periodically with activities that are currently in development.
