Blueberries for Sal by Robert Mccloskey
Blueberries for Sal

Karen Halpern, October 19, 2010

"Blueberries for Sal" has always been one of my favorite books. My mother read it to me when I was a child. I bought it for my daughter and we often read it in summer when we had just "canned" berry jam for winter. One time when I was ill, my then teen-aged daughter got her copy and read it to me as a bedtime story. What a treat it was to hear the familiar words in her voice! The sweet simplicity of the story about a mother and daughter (and Mother Bear and her cub) has been treasured by three generations of my family and has never grown old.
