The Gift of Sweetness
It is maple sugaring season and this year is a special year for the Browns: this year's sap will be boiled using firewood cut from an old maple tree that was cut down last year. The tree was called Sweetness, and Sylvia and Mrs. Brown find that the old tree has more than sap and firewood to give.
