Enjoy blueberries and the classic book Blueberries with Sal  with your little ones this summer.
Summer is the perfect time to go berry picking. Strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries are all in season somewhere in the country. A perfect accompaniment to the berry picking is a reading of Blueberries with Sal  by Robert McCloskey and a few “extension” activities.
Try these recipes and activities with your children this summer:
Caldecott Honor Award, 1949
This delightful book shows two moms and their children picking blueberries on Blueberry Hill. Sally and her mom are picking berries on one side of the hill while a mother bear and her cub roam the other side, eating berries.
If you’ve gone berry picking or simply found a great deal on blueberries at the store, exploring the tastes and textures of the fruit is a great activity to do with your kids. We prefer the hard, crunchy crisp ones.
A reading guide listing 50 must-reads for young children as well as accompanying extension activities, discussion topics, and other family fun to coordinate with the books.
This post is part of the DIY on a Dime: Summer Fun series . For more ideas on how to enjoy the summer holidays on a budget, check out the list.
I know what we’re gonna do this summer.
