    A rather simple story about picking blueberries done in some amazing blue ink drawings. A beautiful story of mother/son time and the joys of picking fresh fruit.

    Absolutely loved this book! The repetition and simplicity were great for reading aloud and for early readers to practice. The premise was sweet and harkened back to a simpler time and place in the world... somewhere like childhood.

    This is such a sweet story, with mothers and wee ones getting crossed up temporarily! I could just hear the blueberries hitting the bottom of Little Sal's pail. Enjoyed the illustrations in this one too--so much "texture" on a flat page!

    This story tells of summer and picking berries. Sal and her mother pick berries to can for the winter season and Sal can't help but eat a few while she picks :) Sal and her mother notice a mama bear and her cub picking and Sal is intrigued. She becomes so interested that she begins to following the mama bear rather than her own mother. This entertaining, warm story is definitely worth a share!

    Summary:This book is about Sal and her mother going to pick blueberries and they end up being separated and meeting a bear and her cub before finding one another.Reaction: This book hits very close to home because I grew up in Alaska around blueberries and bears. It makes me think of home and all of the fun times that I had there.Extension 1: I could bring in blueberries for a snack.Extension 2: I could ask them if they have ever gone berry picking and/or tell them about my experiences with it.

    Summary:This is a story about a mother and her daughter going to pick blueberries to can for winter. At the same time there is a mother bear and her child going to eat blueberries to get fat for the winter. Both the human and bear child wandered off to eat blueberries and both mothers were busy with blueberries. The little bear found the Human mother and followed her while the human child found the mother bear and followed her. Soon everyone realized they were mistaken and found the correct children. Everyone left with the blueberries they came to get.Personal Reaction:This story is charming. The pictures are very well drawn and the story is a good lesson about paying attention to your surroundings. I remember picking blueberries with my grandmother and how fun it was but we never ran into any bears.Classroom Extension Ideas:1. Teaching a lesson about paying attention2. Acting out the story using puppets

    Sal and her mother travel up a hill to pick blueberries while a bear cub and his mother bear travel up the opposite side of the hill to pick berries as well. The pictures are amazing, and are all created using just one dark blue color.

    Great book about a little girl and her mother who get all mixed up with a mother bear and her cub on Blueberry Hill. "Kuplink, kuplank, kuplunk."

However, there is quite a mixup as the young girl unknowingly trades places with a small bear cub who is wandering the hill with his mother looking for berries as well. Follow Sal and the bear cub as they find their way back.

    This is a classic that has been around since 1949. It is about a boy named Sal and his mother go picking blueberries and become separtaed. They bothe end up facing a bear but eventually find their way back to each other. It was a story that had very bland colors that I don't feel kids are attracted to as much. It could be used when you are talking about the classics.

    "Blueberries For Sal" written by Robert McCloskey, is an adventurous tale about a little girl, Sal, and her mother going on a blueberry picking trip. Sal cannot seem to put the berries in her pale; she wants to eat every blueberry in sight. Sal follows her mother around as she picks the berries to can for the winter. Sal wonders off from her mother while finding and gobbling down every berry she comes into contact with. While doing this, she gets sidetracked and begins following a momma bear instead of her mother, and the baby cub follows Sal's mother instead of mother bear. When the mothers realize what has happened, the frantically try to find there little ones. The mothers find their babies and all is well in the end. I enjoyed this book because the author captures young children so well. Sal's appetite and curiosity describes almost every small child, not to mention, the talk of all the blueberries really leaves me hungry for a homemade blueberry pie. Maybe I read to much into the story, but the fact that Sal follows a protective momma bear around the blueberry patch and leaves unharmed seems to be a miracle. Perhaps this book could start a conversation about curiosity and how Sal was lucky she didn't get eaten by the momma bear.

    One of my favorite books from childhood! The line-drawing illustrations are simultaneously homely and adorable. Little Sal has the sweetest little smushed up face; she looks so much more realistic to my eyes than most toddlers in picture books. This may be one of the only cases that a limited color palatte in a picture book doesn't bother me. Instead it enhances or perhaps simply complements the text - since the story is about blueberries and has bears as characters, the dark blue/black coloring of the line drawings suits the story eminently.I love the parallel storylines of Little Sal and Little Bear. I remember really relating to the story as a kid; I remember being shocked that I had accidentally followed some other lady (not my mother) out of a store! I liked the "kuplunk"s and "kuplink"s and the tin can and the sweetness of the story and the love of blueberries! I love the whole thing, actually.

    Bluberries for Sal is a story of blueberry picking between a girl and her mother and a Momma bear and her cub. Lil sal and baby bear both lag behind their mothers to consume berries and become seperated from their mothers. In an effort to reunite they go towards they think is their mothers and end up being mixed up. Mom has baby bear and Momma bear has Lil Sal. Cautiously they each go off in search of their children and reunite after listening for the familiar sounds of them. Lil Sal's sound was the nose the blueberries made when hitting the bottom of her bucket. For Momma bear the sound of baby bear munching and swallowing blueberries lead her to her cub. Both mothers were preparing for winter - Mother to can the blueberries and Momma bear to put fat on for hibernation.This book is in black and white so it was more the story which kept my children engrossed. Winning the Caldecott for illustraions doesnt mean it has to be in color but would have been more inviting had it been. The story was a good one with many openings for questions or situational suggestions.In the classroom we could use this in several ways. We could talk about different practices with winter prepartaions, bears hibernate and why its important to store fat. Or why it was important that mom can blueberries for later. In another aspect we could use the dangers of happening upon strange animals and suggestions for reacting properly.

    One of those classic, brilliantly constructed, SIMPLE stories for children that curl them up ever closer next to you in eager anticipation of where the blueberries will lead its four characters next. I never got tired of hearing "plink, plank, plunk" when I was a child, which for extra effect my mom always read to me as "pa-link, pa-lank, pa-lunk." A pure and simple sound that perfectly evokes the quiet landscape of an afternoon spent collecting blueberries.

    Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey is 1940s classic children's story. The story starts with Sal and her mother heading out to pick blueberries to can for the winter. Today, there are many children who may not know what canning is, so this idea in the story might cause some confusion for younger children that don't know anything about canning. Next, the story unfolds and reveals another mother/daughter pair out for blueberries, Mother Bear and Little Bear. Next, a case of mistaken identities occurs as the 'children' get lost and follow the wrong 'adult'. The story is predictable on many levels, but for the right age group and child I still think "Blueberries for Sal," is a wonderful story.

    This classic book by Robert McCloskey has been on children's shelves since it was written in 1948. It tells the story of Sal, a little girl who goes blueberry picking with her mother and happens upon a bear on her quest for more blueberries.I love the one color illustrations of this book. It's almost as if the illustrations were tinted with blueberries! Sal's upturned nose is especially endearing. I was also impressed by the skill McCloskey shows by using only one color but giving it a lot of texture (such as in the bears' fur). McCloskey's writing is impressive as well. He uses onomatopoeia (with words such as "kuplink" to make the sound of a blueberry hitting the bottom of a pail) to bring his readers into Sal's world. I also love how he makes a direct comparison between Sal and Little Bear, who are both blueberry-lovers and get separated from their mothers, by going back and forth between each of their stories and using parallel structure. It's amazing! Children will love this book for years to come.

    This was one of my favorite books when I was young. I loved to eat blueberries so a whole book about picking them was so much fun to read!

    This old favorite about a little girl and her mother and a little bear and his mother getting mixed up with each other while picking blueberries continues to be loved by young children. It also lends itself well to storytelling, especially with props.

    This is a simple book of a Little Sal, and Little Sal's mother, and Little Bear, and Little Bear's mother, who get mixed up with each other on Blueberry Hill.It's very realistically written and illustrated, and the exciting part isn't too scary for little ones. I will note that it's a bit long - maybe better for kids with longer attention spans than shorter ones. If they're as young as Little Sal is, it might be better to wait a year before reading :)

    I love this book. My kids all loved it, 20-25 years ago. The preschoolers I know now love it. Must be good. Its a comforting story of a child and mother, and a baby bear and mother getting mixed up with each other while picking blueberries. the adults are way more worried than the youngsters, and it all turns out fine in the end.

    A childhood favorite! I loved reading about this little girl and her mom picking blueberries

    This is a great book to help explain what it might be like to go berry picking to freeze or can for later. The book brings childlike humor into the book by having mom and baby animals picking berries as well.

    Wonderful story about a little girl and her mother, and a mother bear and her cub out to pick wild blueberries before winter.

    If you grew up in Maine in blueberry country, this book will bring back your summer days so vividly you almost can't stand it! Although we never met up with bears, the scrubby blueberry woods are depicted so well here it's amazing. I always loved the endpapers as a girl, with the cheery detailed scene of a kitchen.

    This book is a great historical fiction. The book covers a realistic expression of picking berries a long time ago. The book really grabs the reader and makes a fun story for primary ages to read. The characters in this plot are not very well developed, but the book is still very fun to read. You don't know much about Sal or her Mother but the story is still a fun read.

    This story is about a young girl who goes with her mother to Blueberry Hill to help her pick blueberries to store for the Winter. She keeps eating the blueberries she picks as she drops them into her bucket. Sal and her mother encounter a mother and baby bear while picking blueberries. Sal and the baby bear get mixed up with their mothers during the story, but by the end of the story their mothers find them and all is well.I found this story to be very cute and a little funny. The pictures were illustrated beautifully and I liked how the words and pictures were printed only with blue ink. Also, I thought that the sound the blueberries made when they hit the bottom of Sal's bucket was very entertaining as well.In the classroom, I would have the children write their own short stories. They would pick an object, such as a blueberry, and write a story about it. When the students made the final copy of their story, the illustrations and words would be in the color of the object. For instance, a blueberry is blue so their illustrations and words would all be in blue.
