It was a good day and the breeze was fresh. The smiles on the faces of children were bright and wide as they happily picked the blueberries. The flowers were kissed with the morning dew and the warm sand tickled their feet. The girls enjoyed hiking, splashing, hopping, skipping, jumping, and singing and their laughter rang in the air. They saw many wonderful things as they walked and talked. They decided to explore things around them. They climbed high upon the rocks and touched the earth, the sea, and the trees. They smelled the salt upon the breeze and realized it is the simple things in life that actually matter, the hugs, cups of tea, pancake batter, and art. The girls settle down for the night and they sit with their parents, read, snuggle, and cuddle and happily go to sleep.
A Blueberry Day by Etaine Raphael is a beautiful story that will warm the hearts of young readers with its simplicity, making readers aware of how the simple things in life can bring a lot of joy. The author's illustrations are as adorable as her words and they will captivate readers with the color and life that give the story a good pace and movement. The rhyming verses make the lines lyrical and rhythmic and that makes the story soothing while reading aloud. I like the way the author takes a simple topic and makes it magical. It is a good storybook for parents and tutors to read aloud to youngsters and also encourages them to express themselves using rhyming verses. The random fun facts at the end of the book are educational and informative, and children will definitely enjoy this storybook.
