Review: This is the story of Maple (who loves her name, by the way), a little girl whose parents planted a tree in her honor before she was born ("When she was still a whisper"). As she grew, Maple loved spending time with her tree, singing to it, lying under it, taking care of it. But one day, Maple is surprised to see a tiny seedling growing near her tree. Then she discovers something even more surprising - a new sibling is on the way! When her little sister Willow is born, Maple lavishes her with caring love, just as she had with her tree.
