Book Notes: Blackberry Banquet
If you are a regular reader, you are well aware of my obsession with berries and my son's love of blueberries. As a serious berry-lover, I eagerly await the day I can give my son raspberries, strawberries, and the ultimate berry of all... blackberries.
Blackberry Banquet (by Terry Pierce) is a celebration of all things berry and all things woodland. It is rhyming and lyrical, complete with characterizations of forest animals. Each animal even has a dedicated sound.
Gabriel simply loves listening to me Tweet! Yip! Slurp! etc. This book is a good time for parent and baby. AND in the back, there's a small section on the scientifics of it all. Very cool for the curious, young mind.
We bought our copy in Shenandoah National Park, but I encourage you to check it out for yourself.
