Description

Amazon.com Review

Robert McCloskey's classic is a magical tale of the irrepressible curiosity — not to mention appetite — of youth. Sal and her mother set off in search of blueberries for the winter at the same time as a mother bear and her cub. A quiet comedy of errors ensues when the young ones wander off and absentmindedly trail the wrong mothers. Blueberries for Sal — with its gentle animals, funny noises, and youthful spirit of adventure — is perfect for reading aloud. The endearing illustrations, rendered in dark, blueberry-stain blue, will leave you craving a fresh pail of your own.
