Jamberry by Bruce Degen

Jamberry by Bruce Degen: A fun children's adventure.

Rumble and ramble
In blackberry bramble.
Billions of berries
For blackberry jamble."

I am participating in Merle’s Vintage Challenge on Instagram and the prompt today is “Brambles” or “Blackberries” so I am pleased to share with you this vintage children’s book that my boys loved.

Jamberry is a rhyming board book that I think had even greater appeal to my children when they were young because we lived within walking distance of blackberry brambles. Heck those blackberries grew willy-nilly along the streets and roadsides around the town we lived in in British Columbia.

It did not matter the least to us that this was a bestselling classic book. More important was the berry-loving child and the rhyming bear, the wording and the fabulous illustrations. If you love berries just eating them or also picking them, you and the young child in your life will enjoy Bruce Degen’s Jamberry.

In my canoeberry
Under the bridge
And over the dam
Looking for berries...Berries for jam!
