These young twins can't get enough of their favorite snack -- and they aren't the only ones! With playful rhyming text from award-winning poet Susan Musgrave and gorgeous illustrations by Esperança Melo, this exuberant board book will delight little ones and have everyone happily shouting, "More blueberries!"
The duo behind Love You More (2014) returns with an enthusiastic celebration of blueberries, starring two children (and a few animals) who can t get enough of them. The inherent messiness of eating blueberries figures prominently: Blueberry fingers,/ blueberry nose./ Blueberry lips,/ blueberry toes, writes Musgrave as Melo s warm acrylics show the boy and girl leaving blue hand- and footprints in their wake. An interlude in which cats, crows, frogs, and bears express their fervor for blueberries ( Frogs hop on blueberries,/ pop, hop, pop ) disrupts the repeating structure of the rhymes that precede and follow it, but it s a small quibble in a joyful story. Up to age 3.
