9781934359280: Blackberry Banquet

Mmm-mm! Forest animals squeak, tweet, slurp, yip and chomp over the sweet, plump fruit of a wild blackberry bush. But what happens when a bear arrives to take part in the feast? Young children will enjoy following the story by making the animal sounds, and the chaos that strikes upon the bear's arrival will surely bring on the laughter. The cumulative, rhyming text makes for a great read-aloud. The For Creative Minds educational section includes: -Blackberry Fun Facts -How we eat blackberries (with smoothie recipe) -Plants are the bottom of the food chain -Plants and Animals -How do animals help plants? -Are plants always good?

About the Author:

Terry Pierce is the author of sixteen children s books, including picture books, easy readers, joke books and non-fiction. She was a Montessori pre-primary teacher for twenty-two years, before deciding to follow her dream of writing for children. Terry now writes full-time, teaches children s writing workshops, and is a visiting author at elementary schools. She also proudly serves on the Ventura/Santa Barbara regional board of the Society of Children s Book Writers and Illustrators. Picking blackberries with her son on a summer vacation in Oregon inspired her to write Blackberry Banquet (and to master the art of baking of the perfect berry pie).

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3—A mouse, bluebird, squirrel, fox, and deer are all enjoying blackberries until Bear stops by for his share of the fruit. All scatter in fear, except the bluebird, who swoops in and takes the last berry right off the bear's paw. The rhyming text and repetition make this an enjoyable read-aloud: "Squirrel skips into the brambles thick./That snacking squirrel gives a great big lick./Slurp! Mmm-mm!/Tweet! Mmm-mm!/Squeak! Mmm-mm!" The illustrations give the fairly realistic animals great facial expressions that work perfectly with the text. The surprise they show when the bear arrives is a comic delight. An especially nice touch is the berry stains on all the faces—except poor Bear's. The last four pages, "For Creative Minds," offer information on blackberries, the food chain, native and nonnative plants, how plants and animals help each other, and a smoothie recipe. This section is for a variety of ages and can easily be modified to fit a specific grade level.—Catherine Callegari, Gay-Kimball Library, Troy, NH
