blueberries for sal

 

Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey is a perfect book to read before picking blueberries as it depicts Sal and her mother on one side of the slope gathering blueberries while little bear and her mother are gathering on the other. Unaware of the possibility of intruders, both daughters and mothers leisurely go about their delightful task of blueberry picking oblivious of the movements of the other, until a startling discovery is made. An authentic depiction of our own oblivion to the movements of others or to the time, as we become so absorbed in our surroundings and the delightful task at hand that the owners of the blueberry farm invariably have to call us in so that they can close. Aahh, the memories are wonderful!
