Cree/Métis author and illustrator Julie Flett has created a charming picture book about the simple act of blueberry picking. Grandmother and grandson Clarence always picked berries together. Even when the boy was a baby Grandmother took him out to the land. Grandmother sang to the child. Now that he has grown Clarence can carry the pail by himself and sing songs with his Grandmother. Grandmother has taught Clarence what to look for when the pair are in the woods. She carefully watches for bears, they discover a spider weaving a web, and they gives thanks together when the picking is complete. The love between Grandmother and grandson is evident throughout this 32-page book. Simple watercolour drawings in black, red and brown mixed with collage capture the natural environment of the Cree grandmother and grandson gathering berries. Descriptive words aid the simply told story about an age old tradition maintained in the present day. Selected words such as grandmother, wild berries, bears, fox, birds, thank you, and sing are provided in Swampy Cree (n dialect) that is spoken in Cumberland House. This community does not use syllabics in their writing. A helpful pronunciation guide is provided by Earl Cook. The author includes a basic recipe for blueberry jam using no preservatives. Highly recommended.
