I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.
Sal and Little Bear lose their mothers at Blueberry Hill. Eating blueberries and exploring the area are what little ones do. A charming tale which is a quick listen.
I have four kids, homeschool, listen to more whining than good literature, drink (almost) equal amounts coffee and water, and love it all.
My kids love hearing this story every night as they go to bed. It is a short, relaxing, and happy story.
Yes, good plot. It is an easy story for younger children.
The bear and mom listening to the wrong people.
Another book we read in Kindergarten, it is so sweet to hear the story of the little girl eating more blueberries than being put into her pail. (I can totally relate!) My daughter grins really big as she says, "Kerplink, kerplank, kerplunk!" Great to see her face light up as she listens to this story. Again, worth the purchase.
Yes, my 3 yr old loves it! He asks for it almost every day on our hour long commute.
Easy to understand. Not a heavy accent.
I love the simple straight forward naration of this version of Blueberries for Sal. It is a great story and the audio version is clear and easy to follow for my 2 year old who loves the book when we read it at night. It makes car rides easy!
