Clarence and his grandma have a tradition – collecting wild blueberries for their family. As they pick their buckets of berries, they observe wildlife around them and Clarence leaves some berries for the forest animals and birds. This Canadian picture book, which includes some vocabulary in a Cree dialect, can help students learn about First Nations’ traditions and culture, and the importance of intergenerational relationships. Suitable as a read-aloud or independent reading, it offers opportunities for critical thinking and discussions about relationships and animals and their habitats, and a variety of creative writing and art activities.
