I really liked this book for three reasons. First, the writing was engaging and and fun! Between the rhyme and rhythm and the great illustrations of the characters interacting and playing the al kinds of berries made it silly, interesting, and more enjoyable for the reader. All the characters in the illustrations looked they were loving all the berries. The book also teaches about different fruit(all kinds of berries) which is good for a teacher who is teaching a lesson on fruits!

This book has the most amazing timing and rhymes. Simple yet complicated, reminiscent of Dr Seuss but with a different feel. I love the whole story, the sillyness, the beautiful rhyming an the characters bonding and having a fun day. It is a dream day for a young child!

An all time favorite kids' book at our house. I just read it again to my three year and he got very engrossed in the rhyming and the illustrations. ( )

Great book for rhyming.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0694006513, Board book)

Hat and boot in hand, a boy and a bear set off on a delicious and raucous romp through Berryland. They frolic in strawberry fields forever, rumble and ramble in blackberry brambles, and topple their canoeberry with blueberries. Silly rhymes and a musical beat practically beg to be read aloud, preferably accompanied by dancing. New readers will giggle as they follow the fruit-frenzied pals on their berry adventures. Jamberry builds quickly in intensity and complexity, starting with "One berry, Two berry, Pick me a blueberry," and working up to "Raspberry, Jazzberry, Razzmatazzberry, Berryband, Merryband, Jamming in Berryland." Children will love discovering the subtle touches in Bruce Degen's illustrations: a frog climbing out of a hat, crackers and butter instead of lily pads, and a sign by the raspberry skating rink imploring skaters not to pick the jelly rolls planted nearby. Every character seems giddy with well-fed joy in this veritable jamboree of flavorful fun. Jamberry is a book best enjoyed on a gloomy day with a dollop of vanilla ice cream. (Baby to Preschool) --Emilie Coulter
