More Blueberries!

A jubilant ode to blueberries, depicting two toddlers who just can’t get enough of them!

Author: Susan Musgrave

Illustrator: Esperança Melo

Length: 26 pages, 3-14 words per page

Ages: 0-3

Word Choice: A cheerful, energetic celebration of blueberries.  The text is ideal for toddlers, with playful repetition and sounds.  While there isn’t a story, there is a subtle progression of time as the book progresses from daytime eating to bath time and ends with bedtime. 

Illustrations: Lively and vibrant paintings are perfectly paired with the active text.  The characters are cute and dramatic.  My kids enjoyed finding the blueberries in all the funny places.

Read-aloud-ability:  This book reads well.  We have read it countless times as both my kids loved it as toddlers.  The rhythm and rhyme are spot on.

Additional thoughts: If you are looking for a bedtime board book that is a little more bouncy and fun, this board book is a pleasant change from the typical saying-goodnight-to-everything-rhyme.  It has been one of our favorites!
