Blueberries for Sal: Reading Adventure Pack

Reading Rockets
This Reading Rockets Adventure Pack is designed to support reading activities at home. We’ve chosen a fiction and nonfiction book about animals, appropriate for a kindergarten listening level, and included related activities to encourage some hands-on fun and learning. Just assemble the packet in a two-gallon zip top bag, and send home with your students. Reading Rockets carefully chose books that are widely available and appealing to young readers. The titles selected should be available in your school library. If the two featured titles are not available, or you prefer another title, feel free to substitute books related to the theme. You’ll find a list of alternative titles included in the bookmark. The featured books for the Animal Activity Packet are Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey and A Bed or the Winter by Karen Wallace. Blueberries for Sal is a classic children’s story about a human child and her mother and a bear child and his mother looking for berries. A Bed for the Winter is a DK Reader that explores homes different animals find for winter. To explore more Reading Adventure Packs, visit Reading Rockets at
