Review quote

"This is a beautiful children's book about a Northern Michigan family. Nellie, the mother, is determined that her daughter, Holly, should have a warm coat and boots so Holly can start school. 'If she has to stay home half the winter, her learning will have big holes.' Nellie's solution is to take berries from the woods and make jellies and jams to sell. They even make a few pies for them to eat. Holly gets some nature study, too, as the seasons change. Gijsbert Van Frankenhuyzen's illustrations are delightful. What a wonderful book to share with a little girl!" -- "Grand Rapids Press" (March 2003)show more
