From the cranberry bog to the Thanksgiving table, join Sam and his family as they harvest a classic American fruit.

When the vines hang heavy with berries that the autumn winds have turned deep red, it's time for cranberries, and Sam is finally old enough to help with the harvest! This charming, lyrical picture book follows Sam and his family as they raise the water in the bog, pick the cranberries, and gather the fruit for processing. It's a story of modern family farming in action, showing readers where their food comes from but mostly delighting them along the way.

About the Author:

Lisl H. Detlefsen lives on a family-owned cranberry marsh in central Wisconsin with her husband and two young sons. Time for Cranberries is her debut picture book.

Jed Henry has illustrated many books for children, including his own Cheer Up, Mouse and I Speak Dinosaur. He lives in Provo, Utah, with his wife and daughter.

From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 2—For the first time, a young boy participates with his family in the cranberry harvest. He describes the equipment and processes used to pick, transfer from marsh to truck, sort, clean, and ultimately deliver the berries. The harvest time lasts through the fall. When Thanksgiving arrives, he enjoys cranberry pie as part of the celebration (recipe included). This warm tale is an informative glimpse into a farming lifestyle that will be foreign to many children. Based on the author's own experience, the story conveys a feeling of authenticity, although the child view may be somewhat idealized. The illustrations, which appear to be digitally rendered with the look of watercolors and light black detailing, convey the mood with foliage, animals, and clothing consistent with the season. A multigenerational element is emphasized in the picture portraying an older couple sitting on the porch and a younger sister playing in the yard. VERDICT A charming depiction of a small family business that helps children understand the origins of their food.—Lucinda Snyder Whitehurst, St. Christopher's School, Richmond, VA
