PreS-Gr 2-A moving treatise on how the past and present intertwine. The book opens with the young, unnamed protagonist in the present, enjoying time in the blueberry bushes at her grandmother's house. At the same time, she is also remembering a camping trip with her mother. Subsequent pages describe her grandmother, mother, and even their cat's current activities, as well as a past memory they are pondering. A heartwarming conclusion of celebrated interconnectedness follows, sure to spark discussion among readers about memories, time, and more. In this story, Goodale tackles what can be a complex topic and presents it in an accessible, approachable manner for young readers. Double-page spreads of colorful mixed media illustrations use an alternating color scheme to limn past versus the present. The back matter includes a recipe for making blueberry ink. VERDICT. A multigenerational masterpiece, and outstanding addition to any collection.-Olivia Gorecke
