my mom used to read me this all the time when i was a kid
one of my favorites :)

cute and calm

A cute, calm story. Especially good for younger readers.

A classic

Such a sweet book

Great classic tale

One of my favorites as a child and still is today. Such a great story about children going out with their respective parents to the blueberry fields and coming home with the wrong parent! I don't know who is more surprised - Mama bear when she finds Little Sal or Mama when she finds baby bear! A cute story that remains a childhood classic.

Cute story

Great summertime story - especially when Michigan blueberries are in season! My 3 year old loved it!

Nice story for kids

My son liked the story because of bear and mamma bear.
