Follow the journey of a boy and a bear through a land filled with delicious and unusual berries! Have you ever gone over a blueberry waterfall or ridden in a train with giant blackberries? With this story you can imagine you are along for the ride. ¿Mountains and fountains/Rained down on me/Buried in berries/What a jam jamboree!¿ Dozens of nonsense words and hilarious pictures make this book a delight for readers young and old.

This is an ok book. There are a lot of nonsensical sounds, which kids love. However, it's just so silly as to be of very little worth whatsoever. I gave it three stars only because the silliness helps introduce the kids to different sounds; otherwise, it would have gotten less.

This book has some of the most amazingly vibrant, inventive, original, and mouthwatering pictures I've ever seen. Willow loves to look at the pictures now, and I can only imagine that as she gets older we'll spend lots of time talking about all the different berries, food disguised as plants (waffle lilies surrounded by pats of butter...jam roll flowers decorating a strawberry jam skating rink), and silly animals (elephants skating on said jam). The nonsensical language is also great--this is an excellent example of a book that you just MUST sing and dance to as you read it. As silly as it is, the language is also very smart: I appreciate the plays on word combinations, and certain parts are definitely a tongue twister to read. This is a book that, while short in length, will certainly be long in usage...we will be reading, experiencing, and playing with this book for years.

I love this book. I love the rhythm of it, I love the note at the end, I love the dedication - love it.Unfortunately, I've yet to get either of my nieces overly involved in it. They'll sit through it, but they won't request it :(So I've had to take a few stars off what I'd normally rank this book as because, in my house, it's just not doing its job.

Absolutely gorgeous book, a lovely playful rhyme. Definitely my daughters favorite and my sons as well.

I take my son to Barnes and Noble quite often. Last year when he was about 1 year old, we got Jamberry. He has loved it since we bought it. Now at 2 1/2, he "reads" (it's memorized by both of us) it himself. He loves it. We read it at least 5 times a day. Recently he saw that my Mom had an old copy form about 15 years ago that belonged to my sister. It was a paper copy and bigger than his board book. So for a few days he kept telling me he wanted "a BIG Jamberry". My mom bought him one yesterday and he has not put it down since she gave it to him. He even wanted to sleep with it! Get the book (or 2) it's worth the $8 you spend on it.

This book goes into every baby boy gift package we give. I remember we went through three copies of our own. And if that isn't sufficient enough praise I can tell you that my jam making confiture loving son, now a teenager, insisted I buy one when we passed a copy at a local elementary school street fair a little while ago. "Just to have" he said. So I plunked down five bucks for a well loved copy. And we went home and read it again. Unlike the first couple of years I only had to read it once through. My son indulged me next and read it aloud to me.

One berry two berry pick me a blueberry....I honestly think I can recite the whole book from memory due to the number of times I have read it to my Daughter. I love the pictures in the book. In each one you can see evidence of the last picture and the upcoming picture. My daughter loves finding things in the pictures - such as waffles as lily pads and marshmellows a cattails. My Daughter also likes the rhyming patterns of the book. It is always a favorite bedtime book at our house. I highly recomend it for anyone that has a 0-3 year old in the house.

This is the first book I recieved for my daughter at the baby shower and it is the first book I have ever read to her, and she loves it! Its very colorful and doesn't have a lot of reading to do so she doesn't get bored while I sit and read it to her before I can turn the page

"Jamberry" is a well-illustrated and short hard-board book that definitely was one of my favorite night time stories to read to the kids when they were young (age 3 to 6). "Jamberry" combines adventurous, whimsical drawings with a "story" full of rhythm, rhymes, and alliteration. The result is something fun to look at and to read out loud with gusto.....I liked it well enough to have bought several copies as little presents to friends and family.

This is one of the favorite repeat reads with my children. We love it so much that we now give it to gifts to all the new babies we know. It is a sweet, innocent, silly, delightful read.

This one is simply fun, fun, fun! Phonemic Awareness, the awareness of sounds in words, is critical prior to learning how to read. This book plays with words and sounds and is lively and engaging. Probably not a bedtime book, more of an on-the-lap, bouncing reading experience. Your child will love it!

This book is a "sing-songy" rhyming book that delighted both my childen when they were young. We read it over and over! Cute and engaging!

Bounce your baby along with this rhyming, happy chant from Bruce Degen. Don't worry if you never heard of a few of the "berries," your baby will still love you for reading to her. This is my favorite book for giving to new parents. It is happy, colorful, and so engaging that parents may soon find themselves using snatches of the poem in everyday conversations with their babies--what a way to encourage early literacy! Who wouldn't want to be read to when books are this fun!

Just wasn't for us. Purchased for my 21 month old son based on the reviews but honestly he wasn't interested in the story at all.
