Picks of the Week - March 26-30

Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey

Little Sal and her mother go out blueberry picking one afternoon. So do Little Bear and his mother. Little Sal and Little Bear are so busy eating blueberries that they get separated from their mothers. Although they manage to find a mother in the blueberry bushes, is it the right mother?

I remember having my own mother read this to me when I was a Little Rebecca. It won the Caldecott Honor for its wonderful black-and-white illustrations.

The Spiderwick Chronicles: The Field Guide by Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black

Jared, Simon and Mallory Grace have just moved with their mother to an old house that belonged to a great-aunt. When they go exploring, the children find a secret attic room that contains a Field Guide to creatures that none of them have seen...yet!

The first in a series of 5 books, The Field Guide is a fantastic introduction to the world of the Grace children and all the creatures that exist around them. Exciting adventures await!
