Synopsis

Maple & Willow Together by Lori Nichols

This is a joyful tale of two imaginative sisters who are also best friends - most of the time. Maple and Willow do everything together. They love playing outside throughout the whole year, welcoming the sun, rain, leaves, and snow. But it's not always sunshine and rainbows, because sometimes big sisters can be bossy - and sometimes little sisters can be frustrating-and even the best of friends need a break from each other...at least until they can no longer bear to be apart.
