Blueberry Mama

Not only is Blueberries for Sal one of my favorite children's books, the mother in the story has a style I love.   As fall approaches I begin to think of cardigans, Pendleton skirts and loafers as perfect mom attire.  I plan to hit up a few thrift stores here in town to freshen up my fall wardrobe.  

Written in 1948, it reflects classic timelessness.  If you haven't had the pleasure of reading this book I highly recommend you check it out.  Here in the Pacific Northwest blueberries are everywhere this time of year making it the perfect time to re-read Blueberries For Sal.


  1. I love this book too, and so does my 5 year old! We actually have a copy checked out from the library right now, I love to read it in the fall. Reminds me, there is a road stand near here that sells concord grapes...I feel the need to jam!

  2. I once landed in the hospital with a severe asthma attack as a little one, and the only thing that could calm me down was reading "Blueberries for Sal". Thanks for the memory ^_^

  3. Yep, I love this one! I also like the Lois Lensky books! ♥

  4. Loved this book when I was younger one of the more popular ones for my students!
