Jamberry, Jamberry is a joyful berry frenzy.
Every once in a while a children’s book comes along that you know will become a classic favorite. Jamberry is just such a book. Rhythmic and joyful, Jamberry is a poetic story of a bear and his young human friend who frolic through a magical berry land in their quest to make jam. Bruce Degan’s whimsical verse and illustrations captivate young readers. Some berries your child might recognize, like strawberries and blueberries, but some are just simply inventive, like “moonberries” and “starberries”.
Join the barefoot, romping good fun, but better have some berries on hand because by the end of the book, you or your child will probably be craving some. Take advantage of the mood and introduce several varieties to your child. With Jamberry and a snack, you’ll have a “berry” good time.
