Glenn is a sweet boy who just wants to help his family and he figures out just the way to do it all by himself and his pet goat! Well written story and kept my kids attention. We watched a video on making maple syrup after this book!

We loved this sweet tale! We actually tap our own maple trees each year, so my daughter really enjoyed guessing where the story was headed. The silly goat added some comic relief, and all the hard work put in by the family was not missed by my kiddo! We also paired it with the sap section in Science for Little Hearts and Hands. It was perfect!


A fun story about making maple syrup!

My kids all enjoyed this book and are trying to convince my husband and I that we need to plant maple trees so we can have our own maple syrup!


I really liked this one!

This Silver Tales series has been so amazing for my nine year old reluctant reader! He finished this book and proclaimed, “I really like this one!” He loved Muffins the goat and the sugar maples. He says he loves the nature aspects of the book and that others should read this especially if they like nature too. He did take off half of a star because it made him sad that the grandpa died. He’s very sensitive to this topic, but it was very brief and well dome (gentle approach). So happy we added all of the Silver Tales books to our home library!
