We are fortunate to live in an area where we can go blueberry picking in the summer, and we do most years. Reading Blueberries for Sal was almost always a part of the experience. Even as my children got too old for picture books, they didn’t mind re-reading Blueberries for Sal and referring to it as we picked, kuplink, kuplank, kuplunk. I so closely associate this book with blueberries, that even when I just buy blueberries from the store, I pay a mental tribute to memories of warm summer days picking and eating blueberries. There is a delightful mismatch at the heart of the story which creates some suspense and interest to the experience. We were lucky in all of our excursions never to have met a bear though.
