it was amazing

This book, along with Robert McCloskey's other books, were some of my childhood favorites. This one is a companion piece for Blueberries for Sal. It is a book filled with the wonder and innocence of childhood. It is also beautifully illustrated.

It paints a lovely picture of the beautiful state of Maine. It also paints a picture of a simpler time when worries seemed far away. Sal is the quintessential girl who is going through the rite of passage through childhood. There is a delightful scene when she loses one of her teeth while mucking for clams.

This book can be easily read by young children, though I loved it when my mother read it to me before I could read. I have such a warm memory of those days when my mom was such a nurturing presence in my life. Perhaps you will be able to create such a memory for your own child.
