Introduction

Hi boys and girls!

I’m Sal, the little girl from the story called Blueberries for Sal – and I need your help!

I love blueberries, but I don’t know much about them. I do know that they taste good! I need you to learn some facts about blueberries and write them down for me.

Also, I like to pick lots of blueberries. But, after my mom puts them in jars for the winter, there are many leftover berries! I need a good blueberry recipe so I can make something yummy to share with others!

By the way, blueberries are the state fruit of New Jersey! The blueberry became the official state fruit in 2004 after fourth graders at Veteran's Memorial Elementary School in Brick, NJ wrote letters and signed petitions to make the blueberry the official state fruit.
