Sal's mother wants to can blueberries for winter. Little Bear's mother wants to eat blueberries to get fat and store up food for the winter.

The comic genius of McCloskey and his wry look at small-town America kept readers in stitches for generations. Readers follow along as a boy named Homer Price foils four slick bandits using nothing but his wits and a pet skunk.
Lentil cannot sing or even whistle; longing to make music in some fashion, he provides himself with a harmonica and practices constantly wherever he is, especially in the bathtub, because there his tone is improved 100 percent. A book that, along with its fun, truly illustrates the American scene.
Just any old place won't do for raising a family of ducklings. Mr. Mallard thought the pond in the Boston Public Garden would be just right, especially with the swan boats bringing all those people, and all those peanuts. But Mrs. Mallard knew right away that the park was not a safe place for babies. A quiet island in the Charles River, however, proved just right for bringing up a new family-eight fluffy ducklings in all. And after her brood had learned to swim and dive, to walk in a line, and to come when called, Mrs. Mallard knew the time was right. They would all return to the Public Garden. But though the ducklings were old enough to look out for themselves, they couldn't fly. How to move them across the highway, down busy streets and intersections? Mrs. Mallard didn't make a fuss. She just set off at a proud waddle and the ducklings filed along behind her. The people of Boston would just have to make way! This brilliantly illustrated, amusingly observed tale of Mallards on the move has won the hearts of generations of readers. Awarded the Caldecott Medal as "the most distinguished American picture book for children" in 1941, it has since become a favorite of millions, children and adults alike, as "one of the merriest picture-books ever... told in very few words with a gravity that underscores the delightful comedy of the pictures." -The New York Times
The author pictures the beauty of rain, the quiet of night, the attractiveness of foggy mornings, the excitement of sailing, the terror of hurricanes, and the peace of Maine Island.
