blueberries for sal
Blueberries for Sal (caldecott honor)by Robert McCloskey is one of my all-time favorite picture books. i love it for so many reasons.
i love the illustrations . . . dark blue color with block printing.
i love the time period . . . 1948 copyright.
i love the story line . . . a little girl (sal) and her mother set off in search of blueberries 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.
but i think the reason i love it most is because i can remember my mom reading it to me when i was younger.
