Berry Delicious

Summer is the time for warm berry-pickin' and mouth poppin' treats. Our favorite book for the season is Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey. I keep coming back to McCloskey, he's on the list of my favorite authors/illustrators and this book is one of his best. 

Join little Sal on a blueberry picking adventure. She does what all little kids do best while picking, stuffs her mouth rather than the bucket. Look familiar?

"Over on the other side of the hill, Little Sal ate all of the berries she could reach from where she was sitting, then she started out to find her mother." This is the part where Noah starts grinning.



Little Evie on her berry picking ventures. No bears though!

Berry picking with friends = fun+strawberry jam. Perfect equation. Thanks Rebecca and Emily!

Jam for the winter, yum :)
