Sal’s first (minor) opponent is her mother. Sal wants to play with and eat the berries in the pail whereas the mother wants to make the most of her time on the hill and collect sufficient berries for jam. I’m sure that mother has plenty of other jobs to do today in the house. Said to be one of the best tasting mid-season cultivars available, Elizabeth produces large fruit and has an upright spreading habit. Plant in an open sunny spot in a moist acid, but well-drained soil. Can also be successfully grown in pots with ericaceous compost. STUDY the biblical story of Ruth. Briefly explain that Ruth was a young woman who loved her new husband’s mother, Naomi, who loved the Lord. After her husband died, Ruth left her own family andthefalse religions of her homeland to make a new family with Naomi and to worship the true God. Unlike Sal, who dangerously ventured away from her mother and met danger, Ruth promised to always stay with Naomi and eventually met Boaz and became thegreat grandmother of David.

The canning process involves quite a bit of heat and a lot of waiting, so it isn’t my favorite kitchen activity with little ones. I like to imagine Sal’s mother making other blueberry treats too. Heroes of thrillers are Every Men (or ordinary children; low mimetic heroes to use Northrop Frye’s terminology.) Both boys came over to me and I began to read. When I finished, Nathan said, “Can we take the book home? Can Matthew or Joshua read it to us?”For deliveries the size of ours, this just doesn't make sense for us or for our international customers, and so we have made the difficult - but necessary - decision to stop selling our plants internationally. We do very much hope that this will be a temporary measure and look forward to resuming trading internationally in the future. Delivery Information Sometimes they like to snuggle up while I read, but other times, I’ve found it is helpful for their little hands to be busy while I read and these coloring sheets were a fun way to let them do that.


One way to get started with is activity is to bring along a few different containers and go on a nature walk. Once kids start observing their surroundings I bet they can find a few things that make very similar sounds. But I DID know we loved this book, so we spent many fun afternoons doing activities relating to this classic children’s book. Today I’m happy to share many of these great resources with you. I truly hope they are a blessing to your family. History

In 1940, he married Peggy Durand, daughter of the children's writer Ruth Sawyer. They had two daughters, Sally and Jane, and settled in New York State, spending summers on Scott Island, a small island off Little Deer Isle in East Penobscot Bay. McCloskey's wife and eldest daughter Sally are reputed to be the models for little Sal and her mother in Blueberries for Sal (1948), a picture book set on a "Blueberry Hill" in the vicinity. Three others of his picture books are set on the coast and concern the sea. The inciting incidentof a thriller is the appearance of the opponent. In this picture book, the inciting incident is the part where the audience is shown that bears ALSO eat blueberries on the hillside. To help with this, we’ve started using the Five in a Row curriculum. (I’ll talk more about this in a coming post where I’ll share everything we’re using this year.) It is a literature based curriculum that uses classic children’s books to create fun, hand-on lessons across many different subjects.
