Reviews - What do our customers think?
wonderful childs book  Apr 15, 2008
I loved this book as a child so I got it for my
grandchildren. They aren't as impressed with
the pictures from 1950 as I was, but still is
a good story.
blueberries for sal--  Mar 12, 2008
sweet book for little kids. It is an excellent book to read aloud to your children and grandchildren. It is about a girl out picking berries for her mom and it shows a baby bear doing the same for his mom.
My niece loves this book  Jan 16, 2008
She has hundreds of books and everytime I visit she would ask me to read her this book. She loves the illustrations... especially the seal!
Toddler Loves It, and Wants Blueberries for Breakfast!  Jan 11, 2008
I can not tell you how many times I have made blueberry pancakes since we got BLUEBERRIES FOR SAL. My 2 1/2 year old boy loves, loves, loves this book. It has a bit more of a plot than someone his age is used to. The first time we got to a point where the story switches for the moment from the story of Sal and her mommy to the story of Little Bear and his mommy, he stopped me and paged back to look at the pages abiout Sal some more. Once we got past that, he came to love BLUEBERRIES FOR SAL. We read this one over, and over, and over. I have the sense that this book stretched out how much story he could manage, as it is longer and more complex than any storybook we had tried previously.

BLUEBERRIES FOR SAL has also been a great seasonal story for us in fall and early winter. The book is set in fall, and it has allowed us to talk about seasons. Our boy is quite interested in the idea of winter and how the people and the bears are both getting ready for winter.

BLUEBERRIES FOR SAL was one of our bedtime stories tonight, and I have a promise now to make blueberry pancackes for breakfast again. We love BLUEBERRIES FOR SAL!
Children's classic  Jan 7, 2008
I'm not sure if this book is old enough to be considered a classic, but I read it to my children many times as they were growing up and recently bought a copy for my granddaughters. They also have enjoyed the story of a little girl and a bear cub who get mixed up on whose mothers they follow on Blueberry Hill. It might make you want to take your children (or grandchildren) blueberry picking!
