Book of the Month: September

Just under the wire I thought I'd share a children's book that we took out from the library recently.  Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey is a charming classic that tells the story of a little girl and her mom picking blueberries for preserving.  I love the charm of this story as it follows the immediate desire of the young ones to munch the berries right away while the mamas say think of the future.  McCloskey also illustrated the story and my favorite image is on the front and back inside cover:

I've been enjoying images of old time kitchens recently.  This one would be from the 1940's.  So sweet.  A lovely story to share with the little ones you love.
