Blueberries for Sal

By Robert McCloskey
Published by Viking Press 1948
Sal and her mother are going blueberry picking so they will have blueberries to can for the winter. Little Sal isn’t much help, but she loves eating the wonderful berries. Likewise, a baby bear and her mother are also out, eating blueberries in preparation for the winter. The four of them, through benevolent inattention, get mixed up and the mothers discover that they have each other’s babies. They quickly discover their own children, finish their business in the berry patch, and go their separate ways.
This sweet book is great for young children discovering animals, and colors the bears in a benevolent light.
