About the Author

Robert McCloskey (1914-2003) wrote and illustrated some of the most honored and enduring children's books ever published. He grew up in Hamilton, Ohio, and spent time in Boston, New York, and ultimately Maine, where he and his wife raised their two daughters. The first ever two-time Caldecott Medal winner, for Make Way for Ducklings and Time of Wonder, McCloskey was also awarded Caldecott Honors for Blueberries for Sal, One Morning in Maine, and Journey Cake, Ho! by Ruth Sawyer.  He was declared a Living Legend by the Library of Congress in 2000.  You can see some of his best-loved characters immortalized as statues in Boston's Public Garden and Lentil Park in Hamilton, Ohio.

Karen Halpern, October 19, 2010 (view all comments by Karen Halpern)
"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.
