Publisher's Summary

Kuplink, kuplank, kuplunk go the blueberries into the pail of a little girl named Sal who - try as she might - just can't seem to pick as fast as she eats. Robert McCloskey's classic is a magical tale of the irrepressible curiosity - not to mention appetite - of youth. Sal and her mother set off in search of blueberries for the winter at the same time as a mother bear and her cub. A quiet comedy of errors ensues when the young ones wander off and absentmindedly trail the wrong mothers.

Blueberries for Sal is a classic

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.

6 year old daughter loved this one!

What made the experience of listening to Blueberries for Sal the most enjoyable?

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.

wonderful - just like we read at bed time!

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!
