Blueberry Girl
Blueberry Girl | Neil Gaiman
31 posts | 41 read | 15 to read
This is a prayer for a blueberry girl . . . A much-loved baby grows into a young woman: brave, adventurous, and lucky. 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 herself. Let me go places that we've never been, trust and delight in her youth. Nationally 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 them. Give her all these and a little bit more, gifts for a blueberry girl.

Thought I‘ll start off my #AuthorAMonth reading with this lovely, celebratory poem which Gaiman initially wrote for his friend who was expecting a baby girl. It was written as a heartfelt wish for a girl, from childhood to growing into a beautiful, independent adult. Though a picture book, it‘ll resonate with any mother and daughter. ☝️ is the last two stanza of the poem.

Soubhiville Yay! First #authoramonth post of November! 4mo

#NoFemmeber Day 21: Not a #FalseHope but a fervent prayer to a blueberry girl about to be born. With Gaiman‘s trademark touch of magic, he weaves together an incantation, a spell of protection for this precious blueberry girl, calling on the powers of “ladies of light and ladies of darkness and ladies of never-you-mind.” My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-7EH

Billypar Never heard of this Gaiman! His imagination seems like a perfect match for illustrated children's books- I'm curious to look up how many others he's written for this age level.. 1y

When Litsy started 2 1/2 years ago I was in the middle of maternity leave. Sleep deprived and feeling disconnected from the world, this wonderful app appeared and I was immediately addicted. There is such a wonderful community here and now, just after hitting my 20,000 Litfluence, I want to thank all of you for being here and for making this app a place for book lovers to connect. *Pictured is my daughter and one of my very first Litsy posts!

My daughter received this for Easter and we read it this morning three times. She just loved it. It's a beautiful prayer for a new born baby for a lovely life through to adulthood. Some of the words are a bit advanced for a 4 year old (says age range 4-8) but the illustrations are lovely and the sentiment is sweet.

I can't rave enough about Neil Gaiman's children's books. Especially the Chu series (for younger kids)

vkois88 Blueberry Girl is FANTASTIC. It was gifted to me while I was pregnant and it's beautiful! And, of course, Peppa is a favorite ❤ I used to love Little Critter when I was little, but haven't really gotten Peanut started on them yet. Great haul, I'm sure your LO will love it all!! 2y
Chellebearss @vkois88 thanks! I‘m excited to give them their baskets! 😀 2y
vkois88 Awww yay! I'm excited for mine to open hers too... I just put it together so I don't have to stress tomorrow 😊 2y
Chellebearss @vkois88 Easter bunny doesn‘t come here until Sunday and I‘m more excited than they are 😀 2y
vkois88 Ours won't be here until then either, but I work tomorrow and then I'll be spending time with her. I didn't want to have to stay up late putting it together tomorrow. Plus, I was just really excited bc it's her first Easter 😊 2y
Chellebearss @vkois88 it‘s my youngest first Easter too! So much fun. Enjoy 😊 2y

"..Grant her the wisdom to choose her path right, free from unkindness and fear. Let her tell stories and dance in the rain, somersault, tumble and run. Her joys must be high as her sorrows are deep. Let her grow like a weed in the sun.."

One of Gaiman's picture books that I adore. He wrote this book for a friend who was about to become a mother to a girl.

I'm trying to get through all of Neil Gaiman's books this year. I've read several over the years, but I want to be able to say I've read them all. So one of my choices for the #bingo challenge is this one for a #BookWithGirlInTheTitle . I'm also going to read the next Unbeatable Squirrel Girl.

Book title(s) that explain my life: Going The Distance (because I will keep fighting for the whole distance of life) and The Blueberry Girl (because I eat blueberries almost every day). Thanks @24in48 and @Litsy for the #24in48 #readathon! 👍🏻

This lullaby/prayer is one of my favorites to read to my girls. It's beautiful in it honesty. It's a prayer I find myself reciting often.

Echo I adore this book and can almost repeat it. I had learned it by heart when my twins were tiny and I would recite it as I put them to bed at night. 4y
