Could there be any cuter character in a book than little Sal? Poor thing gets separated from her mother and ends up following a bear! She’s too busy to notice through because she’s busy eating as many blueberries as she possibly can.
Now of course if this was a movie it would be terrifying for kids, but somehow in Blueberries for Sal this story is endearing and one of my favorites.
This is a great book to introduce the letter “B” because you have both bears and blueberries! Don’t forget to make some blueberry muffins with this story, just like Sal and her mother do at the end of the book.
