In my opinion, books are the best accessory.

Miss Maple’s Seeds by Eliza Wheeler – What a delicate and beautiful book… loved watching how Miss Maple collected, cultivated, and dispersed the seeds in a loving manner… perfect parallel to educators. Really enjoyed the beautiful pictures, seed specific clarification, and other details in the book. My son was simply captured by the size of Miss Maple and how important and impacting she was, even at a small size.
Favorite line was:
“Take care, my little ones, for the world is big and you are small. But never forget… even the grandest of trees once had to grow up from the smallest of seeds.”
Goodreads Summary: “Miss Maple gathers lost seeds that haven’t yet found a place to sprout. She takes them on field trips to explore places to grow. In her cozy maple tree house, she nurtures them; keeping them safe and warm until it’s time for them to find roots of their own, and grow into the magnificent plants they’re destined to become. Eliza Wheeler’s luminous paintings feature gorgeous landscapes, lush foliage and charming details. Her tender story celebrates the potential found in each seed—since even the grandest tree and most brilliant flower had to grow from the smallest of seeds. Celebrate every season with Miss Maple, from Earth Day to graduations to harvest festivals.”
The drink… well, often I wonder what I’m drinking. Here’s a time- tea, lemon… that’s about it.
