About Me I am a retired librarian and I now support books and authors through my reviews.

I have always loved to read and I was able to share that love through my work as a public librarian for 22 1/2 years. I now promote literacy by reading, and then writing reviews. I love to support authors by sharing my reviews with others!

Isaac and Izzy's Magical Maples by Angela Henderson (Author), Rachael Koppendrayer (Illustrator)

Isaac and Izzy's Magical Maples

Autumn is painting the world in vibrant colors, and Isaac and Izzy want to give back to their favorite magical maple tree. A normal present won't do, though. They want to give him the sweetest gift of all-a friend!

But are all the efforts of the kids and the animals who live near the tree enough to create a bit of magic...or will the Sugar Maple have to lend them a helpful branch once again?


This third book with Isaac and his special Sugar Maple tree is another sweet story that's filled with colors, animals, and the joy that comes from friendship. Author Angela Henderson never fails to incorporate learning into her entertaining stories and the illustrations by Rachael Koppendrayer are gorgeous. Grab a copy of Isaac & Izzy's Magical Maples and share the magic with your little ones!

I received a complimentary copy from the author and publisher. There was no obligation for a positive review.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Angela Henderson Smith resides in Dallas, Texas, where she teaches middle school English Language Arts & Reading and is a mother of three. Exploring children’s books for twelve years with her own children during numerous “story times” at the local library and reading hundreds of books to her children, her passion for quality children’s literature led her to write her own work. She’s been able to share her love of literature with over a thousand followers by featuring authors and books. She’s thrilled to introduce her own creative story where magical moments lead to positive perspectives. 


I’m Rachael Koppendrayer—artist, illustrator, writer, and lover of stories.

Raised on the small dairy farm in central Minnesota that my great-grandfather established when he emigrated from Sweden, I grew up surrounded by fields, pasture, woods, and swamp—all ripe for exploration and inspiration. Though I have since traveled the world it is the images of my home and heritage that continue to inspire my artwork most.
