Blueberries for Sal back

I had no idea, as we already have a few copies and aren't looking for more, but Blueberries for Sal has been unavailable for a year thanks to a dispute between the estate of Robert McCloskey and his publisher. It's such a nice book, I am happy to know it is available. The new edition will apparently have "bluer" blues which may require a new copy. He has many great books, but I especially like Time of Wonder, about a summer spent on an island in Maine. The art is gorgeous and captures the magic of childhood summers so well.

"Blueberries for Sal" was one of my favorite books ever when I was 3-5. I read it to my 4-year-old niece over the holidays, and when it ended she asked me to start again from the beginning. Twice!

It is such a classic, I love it that kids today still get a big kick out of it. We will go berry picking this summer and this is a great book to read beforehand.
