Jamberry: A book you’ll read again and again.

Jamberry

 

Board book

Birth-2 years old

By Bruce Degen

32 pages

HarperCollins Publisher

1983

 

This is a perfect book and holds a permanent spot on “my top twenty books for a baby” list.

The illustrations are colorful, detailed and whimsical. And there are fun things going on in the background to point out and talk about.

The text has a flawless rhyming pace, making almost any adult feel like the most practiced preschool teacher or librarian while reading it aloud. When there’s a perfect rhythm to follow you can almost sing the words, making it that much more fun to read.

Jamberry is a simple story about a boy and a bear going berry picking and the friends they meet along the way. They travel down a river in a canoe, dance in meadows, hop on a train, and take part in a Berryband concert! Then, an already perfect day of berry picking and festivities draws to a close with fireworks.

Be prepared—little ones will want to hear this story over and over and over.
