Editorial Reviews

"A fun read aloud for toddler time because of the rhyming text and the expressive language."

— Resource Links

"A brother and sister...get their hands on too many blueberries in this board book...These tots make a bit of a mess, even letting some animals in on the purple-stained fun...[Musgrave] combines 'blueberry' with simple, toddler-friendly vocabulary for an infectious chant...Sharp-eyed readers will notice that the frog, bear, and crow that join the fun may be imaginary, if stuffed toys and bedside book are taken as clues...A great read-aloud that supports both vocabulary building and phonemic awareness."

— Kirkus Reviews

"A brightly illustrated, sturdy little board book featuring that most luscious and irresistible of all summer fruits...Melo's bold and beautiful acrylics on gessoed paper are a perfect match for Musgrave's text as she depicts the blueberry stained twins eating, drinking and playing their way through blueberry concoctions of all sorts. More Blueberries has great visual and tactile appeal and should prove a success with small listeners (as well as being hardy enough to resist damage from little hands and teeth!) Highly Recommended."

— CM Magazine

"The sheer joyfulness of the text and the vibrant acrylic paintings (appropriately smeared with bright blue) is infectious. Pair with Vera B. Williams’s More, More, More Said the Baby...while teaching babies and their caregivers the American Sign Language word for 'more.'"

— School Library Journal
