    This was the first book my kindergarten teacher read to our class on the first day on kindergarten in 1970. The story centers around McCloskey's own daughter, Sal and his wife picking blueberries on a hill in Maine. While picking blueberries Sal and her mother become separated but are unaware of it. Instead each unknowingly ends up picking blueberries with a member of the bear family. Sal's mother and Mother Bear both discover they have been picking blueberries with the wrong child and go in search of their own children. Each mother finds her child and so ends the day of blueberry picking on the hill. McCloskey's illustrations for this book are done in blue ink and are superb! This book is not only my favorite from childhood but my daughter's as well.
