One summer day, young Sal and her mother climb Blueberry Hill to pick berries from the many bushes growing there. As her mother fills the pail, Sal fills her tummy with the juicy blueberries. On the other side of the hill, a mother bear and her cub are enjoying the berries, too. Both Sal and the bear cub get tired, though. And when they stop to rest, their mothers keep climbing the hill. The resulting mixup is an adventure that highlights the universal curiosity of children - and the eternal patience of moms.
Ever since it was published over 50 years ago, this timeless story has been a beloved favorite of children and their parents. Narrator Christina Moore’s gentle performance adds a special glow to the charming world McCloskey creates in Blueberries for Sal.
