Happening Soon at Square Books Junior
Lori Nichols’ enchanting debut features an irresistible, free-spirited, nature-loving little girl who greets the changing seasons and a new sibling with arms wide open.
When Maple is tiny, her parents plant a maple tree in her honor. She and her tree grow up together, and even though a tree doesn’t always make an ideal playmate, it doesn’t mind when Maple is in the mood to be loud—which is often. Then Maple becomes a big sister, and finds that babies have their loud days, too. Fortunately, Maple and her beloved tree know just what the baby needs.
About the Author
Lori Nichols spent her childhood in northwestern Pennsylvania surrounded by maple trees. As she grew, so did her love of trees and nature. She now lives in Birmingham, Alabama, with her husband and three free-spirited daughters. Many days you can find Lori and her family under their maple tree, eating lunch, playing kickball or just being loud. Maple is her first picture book.

SBJ Book Society
The SBJ Book Society, Square Books Jr.'s first official book club, is not your average book club. The Phase I group consists of ages 8 through 12 (with some exceptions) and meets the second Friday of every month at Square Books Jr., 6-7 o'clock P.M. The SBJ Book Society will choose, read, and discuss one exciting, quality work of fiction every month. We don't just pick any old book - we compare novels, new and old, and narrow our selection to the most intriguing and relevant titles. SBJ members get a 10% discount off the chosen selection. SBJ Book Society members are encouraged to write book reviews and post them to the Square Books, Jr. website (publishers and authors love this). Sometimes SBJ Book Society has the opportunity to meet and interact with select authors. We also like to talk about school projects and other books that members are reading. Granted--sometimes we get silly and talk about goofy stuff--but we try to stay focused on the task at hand: literary enjoyment and enlightenment. If you are interested in joining the SBJ Book Society or learning more about us please email jill[at]squarebooks.com or junior[at]squarebooks.com or call us at 662-236-2207.
