Sal and her mother are picking blueberries for the winter and meet a mother cub and her bear. the cub and Sal get mixed up and begin following the wrong mother. Will they discover before they follow the wrong mother home? This story could be used in a seasonal discussion or when talking about how different animals prepare for the winter. It could be a way to tie in science into the reading classroom ( )

a young girl and her mother and a young bear and his mother get mixed up on the mountain- and then all get reunited to return to picking/eating blueberries. this was a lighthearted story lacking action or theme- but was filled with old style illustrations. especially captivating in this book was the auditory descriptions in the text in italics, making the experience for the mind that much more absorbing
