Kuplink, Kuplank, Kuplunk! It’s blueberry picking time, and that reminds me of one of my favorite childhood books, Blueberries for Sal. In this classic tale, Little Sal goes blueberry picking with her mother. Little Sal actually does more eating of the blueberries than picking while her mother does most of the work. Her small bucket makes a kuplink, kuplank, kuplunk sound because there are never very many berries in it. Along the way, she gets tuckered out and stops to eat some berries. However, when she goes to find her mother, she accidently follows a mother bear that is out eating berries with her baby bear. Little Sal’s mother makes a strange and surprising discovery as well. All ends happily for the mothers and their little ones. If you love blueberries as much as I do, this is a good book for you.
