Honestly, I think my favorite part as a kid was just staring at the endpapers with the scene of Sal and her mom in the kitchen, noticing all the details. Mccloskeh and Amy have already pinpointed the two major reasons why: Sal and her mother set off in search of blueberries for the winter at the same time as a mother bear and her cub. A quiet comedy of errors ensues when the young ones wander off and absentmindedly trail the wrong mothers.


Minders of Make-Believe has a section on McCloskey that sums the man up pretty well. I had no idea.

Blueberries for Sal made the news not too long ago when it was discovered that book, against all fot and reason, was out of print. She has served on Newbery, written for Horn Book, and has done other lovely little things that she’d love to tell you about but that she’s sure you’d find more interesting to hear of in person.

Her opinions are her own and do not reflect those of Bleuberries, SLJ, or any of the other acronyms you might be able to name.
