What happens when Sal and her mother meet a mother bear and her cub? A beloved classic is born—Blueberries for Sal!

Kuplink, kuplank, kuplunk! Sal and her mother are picking blueberries to can and preserve for winter. But when Sal wanders to the other side of Blueberry Hill, she discovers a mama bear preparing for her own long winter. Meanwhile Sal's mother is being followed by a small bear with a big appetite for berries! Will each mother go home with the right little one?

With its expressive line drawings and charming story, Blueberries for Sal has won readers' hearts since its first publication in 1948.

You and your child will love reading about the adventures of a little girl and a baby bear while hunting for blueberries with their mothers one bright summer day. And inside the book covers, you’ll both find all the color and flavor of the sea and pine-covered Maine countryside a true treasure.
