Well, I liked this book much better that I d anticipated The illustrations are of a type that usually aren t my favorite style, but I loved the paintings that have blue whales in them, including the very last picture, which is very full of a lot of what s shown in all the previous pictures.The rhyming poem that makes up the story really touched me, but I can t help wondering if this is a book

children I think elementary school students, maybe even upper elementary school students, will belikely to enjoy this book than preschoolers.I do think it s wonderful that this poem was written for an actual child still in the womb and her pregnant mother, and it is an inspiring poem I like the sentiments better than the execution though Written as a special gift for a friend who was pregnant with a little girl, Neil Gaiman s Blueberry Girl is a poetic wish for all sorts of blessings for the baby in question, both when she is a child, and as she grows into a woman It begins with an invocation and prayerLadies of light and ladies of darkness and ladies of never you mind, This is a prayer for a blueberry girland goes on to express the hope that the girl will find the strength and wisdom to lead a good life.This is the thi Written as a special gift for a friend who was pregnant with a little girl, Neil Gaiman s Blueberry Girl is a poetic wish for all sorts of blessings for the baby in

upon Instructions and Crazy Hair , and I have to say that it is the weakest of the three I found the text rather awkward it doesn t scan very well, and I can t imagine it making that appealing of a read aloud and thought that it missed the mark a bit For a book that isn t story centered, but is meantas an inspirational meditation, I found myself oddly uninspired by the meditation The artwork by Charles Vess is lovely especially the scene with the whales but it wasn t enough to save this one Recommended chiefly to Neil Gaiman fanatics who have to read everything he has written everyone else can safely give it a miss I watched the video version, I have to be honest I didn t like it.I appreciate the good thoughts and words infused, but I didn t like blueberry girl There was no mention of the fruit in the story, why put it in the title It s not that I don t like blueberries, but I think naming a child after a fruit at least deserves a fruity kinda story It makessense.Else, it s disjointed and quite meaningless.I didn t like the poetry prose either They re supposed to be inspiring, lighthearted an I watched the video version, I have to be honest I didn t like it.I appreciate

lighthearted and dreamy tickling a child s imagination, but I found it to be heavy and contrived this isn t a kids book at all there s really little inspiration there I feel it forced, and to add the title, which has no relation to the book, it s a blueberry bomb for me The last books I ve read were five star books, so I am in a hangover and can t read properly The only way is to read short ones before reading another heartbreaking book, so these less than fifty page stories are just perfect in this case And of course the illustrations capture the attention Never mind that I m not a ten year old As C.S Lewis saidBut some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again How does this title relate NO mention of fruit, fruit trees or even edible things Maybe it s cause blueberries grow and humans grow I don t know and I don t feel like going full literary analysis on this one.I wasn t a huge fan of the images but I like the variety of girls and the way the words coordinated with them growing up howeverthis whole thing was soooo muchnonsensical than I would ve wanted in a book.YouTube Blog Instagram Twitter Snapchat miranda.reads Happy Re How does this title

Exploring, traveling, bathed in sunshine, surrounded by the wonders of the world What every new parent or parent to be dreams of for her child, what every girl dreams of for herselfLet me go places that we ve never been, trust and delight in her youthNationally bestselling author Neil Gaiman wrote Blueberry Girl for a friend who was about to become the mother of a little girl Here, he and beloved illustrator Charles Vess turn this deeply personal wish for a new daughter into a book that celebrates the glory of growing up a perfect gift for girls embarking on all the journeys of life, for their parents, and for everyone who loves themGive her all these and a little bit , gifts for a blueberry girl Gaiman s poem is lovely and should be read as a tribute to little girls everywhere My complaint is about the illustrations It is just a niggling little thing, but it kept me from fully enjoying the book the outlines around the girls and creatures drove me nuts I think lovely watercolors bleeding into one another would have beenin keeping with the fairy tale tone of the narrative. Some kind of poem for a baby girl This would be a great gift for a daughter well, I have a son, but I hope someday God will give me a daughter Update 5.02.2019 I finally bought this book DAnd now that I have a daughter, I ll read this to her Let s hope she won t tear the pages
