Book Trailer Premiere: Maple and Willow Together by Lori Nichols

Tomorrow is Maple & Willow Together's book birthday! I'm celebrating this special event one day early by premiering its sweet book trailer. 

I hope you'll include Maple and  Maple & Willow Together in your plans for Picture Book Month. I recommend celebrating it on November 13 (family) or on any day that ends in y. :) 

Lori, please finish these sentence starters:

Picture books are visual journeys of excitement, humor, sadness, fear, anger, hope and love all experienced on the safety and warmth of the lap of a caregiver.

Reading is food for the brain. Junk food, hearty food, nourishing food, comfort food, yucky food, mmmm-mmmm good food. Sometimes it’s a ripe fig picked fresh from a tree, sometimes it’s frozen steak-uums. Whatever the food, reading keeps us alive and invites us to sit down with strangers and nourish our souls. And reading is travel. I love the Mark Twain quote “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness…” Reading helps us to travel to other lives and hopefully understand one another a little better.

Borrow Maple and  Maple & Willow Together from your school or public library. Whenever possible, please support independent bookshops.
