Annoying

I used to like this book. It was cutesy and (I thought) the PERFECT book for little kids. That was before my younger brothers heard it and started quoting it non-stop. Then it was annoying. After about 7hrs of hearing, “Sal picked all the blueberries she could reach without moving/ Sal brought her little pail to pick blueberries in and take them home and can them for next winter/Sal is a spoiled brat, who doesn’t care about anyone except herself.” I was about ready to throw the whole book out the window. Fine book. Would ONLY recommend for kids who don’t love to quote stuff.

Wholesome!

I remember my mom reading this story to me back in the 1960's and now I'm reading it to my grandkids (and listening to it at bedtime!). It's a great story about blueberries and bears.
