A berry, beary, good book!

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Great illustrations, cute story, rhyming lines.

Cons:none!

This book will quickly become one of your toddler's favorites if you are wise enough to add it to your bookshelf! This is a story of a little boy and his bear friend as they search for berries ripe for the picking.

The bear speaks in rhyme, something most little listeners will love. He invites the little boy on a berry picking adventure--"one berry, two berry, pick me a blueberry."

In addition to rhyming lines, other great learning features in this book include numbering, alliteration, and repetition. The lines of the book are musical to youngster's ears, you are sure to get some giggles at lines like, "Raspberry rabbits, brassberry band, Elephants skating, on raspberry jam."

The accompanying illustrations are wonderful, as well. They are incredibly detailed and action-packed. You can have quite a conversation JUST on the great events happening in the pictures, which will encourage your little listener to make up a few stories of his or her own.

At the end of the story is an author's note from the writer, Bruce Degen. He tells of his own wonderful memories of picking berries as a child. He and his grandparents would pick berries and then sit on the front porch eating berries and delighting in the aroma of fresh baked berry pie in the oven.

I loved the author's note, because childhood memories are a HUGE part of why I love this book. I grew up in the Pacific Northwest picking berries with my family; my mom made delicious jams, pies, and cobblers from the freshly picked berries. I now live in Las Vegas and am sometimes saddened that my own little one is so far removed from the world I grew up in. I can't wait until he is old enough to understand _Jamberry_ better; I will then tell him about how I used to pick berries with my parents when I was a little girl. Luckily his grandparents still live in the Northwest, so he can spend summer vacations at Grandma and Grandpa's picking berries too--and afterwards, we'll read a great book like _Jamberry_!
