    Time for Cranberries is an educational story that immerses children into the process of harvesting cranberries. The illustrations are helpful in explaining the process to children and is even told through the eyes of a little boy during his first year of harvest. A glossary in the back of the book offers clear clarification for children on the harvesting tools. The descriptions in this book are fantastic and make it feel as though the reader is there experiencing the harvest. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for an educational, autumn read broken down easily enough for young children to understand.

    Not a typical Thanksgiving book, but it does tie it in at the end. Very informative book about the process of harvesting cranberries. A young boy tells the story as he is on his first harvesting trip with his parents. Great illustrations. There is a glossary in the back of the book and also a couple cranberry recipes I want to try. The author's note gives even more cranberry info. More cranberries are grown in Wisconsin than any other state is one fun fact and there are many more. Love this interesting addition to our Thanksgiving book collection.

    I had no idea all the work that goes into harvesting cranberries, and reading this book has given me a whole new appreciation for the fruit. Next time I bite into my cran-orange muffin, I'll keep in mind all the work that families such as Sam's do in making those yummy berries available for me. The book follows Sam as he joins his parents in the cranberry bogs. I lie how the author provides so many details, including how the fields first must be flooed, and almost makes the family's labor sound as though they are roping and corralling wild horses. The Author's Note gives readers insight into her upbringing and experience with cranberry growing, and she also provides recipes for cranberry sauce--the real stuff, not the yucky canned stuff--and a cranberry pie, which sounds scrumptious. I think I'd like to try both of them. The inclusion of a glossary with words specific to the story is helpful to readers unfamiliar with this type of farming. Time for cranberries means plenty of good eating for most of us but also plenty of hard work for others. The book helps readers appreciate the sources of the foods they love.

    This offers the best of non-fiction for young readers, but will engage and appeal to adults as well. The process of cranberry harvesting and information about the cranberry industry are skillfully tucked into a fluent and fun text, using a young boy's first participation in the family business to make a business venture much more than that. Illustrations are both informative and heartwarming, with an undertone of color that lets the cranberries rise to the center of attention on every page, as they should.The repeated pattern: "Is it time for cranberries yet?" mirrors the typical "Are we there yet?", easing the transition and page turns from stage to stage of the harvest, processing, and eventual path to the answer everyone is craving by the final pages- YES, it's time to eat the cranberries!Back matter providing family, geographic, and economic details will interest all but the youngest and can launch research related to economics, foods, and Wisconsin.

    I don't know how I missed this book last year but I'm very glad it was sent our way for Bookends! Stories set on family farms are SO rare. This is a really nice one in that not only do so few of us know anything about harvesting cranberries but the process is seen through the eyes of a boy just now old enough to participate! The information is clearly and interestingly presented and the I, for one, learned so much. Jed Henry's illustrations have a rich ripeness to the palette that matches the subject.This is a perfect book to add to fall, Thanksgiving and farm units especially as it is so unusual. As we talk about diversity in children's books, it is important to point out that farm kids rarely get to see themselves reflected accurately portrayals of their lives.

    Lisl Detlefsen ’03AuthorFrom the author:From the cranberry bog to the Thanksgiving table, join Sam and his family as they harvest a classic American fruit.When the vines hang heavy with berries that the autumn winds have turned deep red, it's time for cranberries, and Sam is finally old enough to help with the harvest! This charming, lyrical picture book follows Sam and his family as they raise the water in the bog, pick the cranberries, and gather the fruit for processing. It's a story of modern family farming in action, showing readers where their food comes from but mostly delighting them along the way.

    Having family up in the Warrens, Wisconsin area which is a large cranberry growing area, I absolutely loved this picture book written by Lisl H. Detlefsen, illustrated by Jed Henry.Lisl and Jed captured the cranberry harvest accurately. Together, they took me to Cranfest where I first learned how the cranberries were harvested. My relatives were part of the group to first create Cranfest and are still a part of it today though in much smaller capacity. The harvesting with the machines is just incredible.While reading this book, I was excited to read their harvesting adventure and am now craving fresh cranberry sauce and cranberry jelly. Published by Roaring Brook Press.

    First, let me state that I love cranberries! Where was this book when I was teaching 2nd grade and doing a cranberry unit (did you know that ripe cranberries bounce?)? What a great book filled with information about this amazing fruit. I liked the story being told from the perspective of a little boy who is finally old enough to participate in the cranberry harvest on his family's farm. There are two recipes included, as well as some background information on the family cranberry business from which this book was based.

    Time for cranberries by Detlefsen_ Lisl H - Henry_ Jed We live near the cape where they do harvest the cranberries every year and we've never seen it done.Although this one is around a Michigan farm the process would be about the same.Love the glossary of words used before the story. What a treasure-recipes using cranberries. I personally love them!Love how they explain the process of the harvest.I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).

    Readers follow along on a family farm as cranberries are harvested. Children will enjoy the story of a youngster's first time helping the family harvest the berries. They will also learn about how cranberries grow and are picked. (I learned a couple things while reading it) Even if children are familiar with farming, this is a different kind of farming and will introduce them to a new experience. Good read around Thanksgiving and Christmas when cranberries are most popular as additions to meals and desserts.

    A great addition to the seasons genre within children's literature. Full disclosure: Our family is friends with Lisl's family. This association was helpful while reading because we have visited the marsh depicted in the story. The descriptions and illustrations are very accurate. For any teacher looking to frontload their students with essential knowledge regarding the seasons, types of agriculture, or a food unit, this book is a worthy choice.

    An informative picture book about a family harvesting their cranberry crop. The narrator, Sam, describes the process of booming, corralling, suctioning, cleaning, and delivering the cranberries in a clear, straightforward narrative. Although there are no resource notes, the author lives on a cranberry marsh and includes a note at the back that speaks about cranberry farming. There are also recipes and a glossary. A useful book for elementary units on farm life and food production.

    If you're looking for a great book about fall/harvest that stands out from the normal apple, pumpkin and leaf books -- this is it! Join Sam and his family on their cranberry farm as they harvest a delicious crop just in time for Thanksgiving. Kids (and grown ups) will learn about cranberry harvesting in this endearing picture book. Lovely illustrations - and the text is just the right length for 2-8 yrs. Add this one to the fall storytime rotation!

    Nice overview of how cranberries are harvested as the book follows a little boy helping his parents with the harvest for the first time. As cranberry harvesting is actually weird and interesting, this will have some great usefulness, especially here in Massachusetts, where cranberries are a major crop. The book has a gentle seasonal feel, and is well-illustrated.

    Cranberries can be a once a year, have a spoonful, Happy Thanksgiving! for me. Cranberry juice with cherry or peach is good too. All in all, not my favorite fruit. However, after reading this, I am totally jonesing for something cranberry.Fascinating and with great illustrations.

    This is a really nice story about cranberry harvesting, written by a family-run cranberry farm in Wisconsin. The pictures are fun and colorful and there's a bonus: the recipe for cranberry pie at the back of the book is delicious!

    Bright colorful illustrations. Story follows the harvesting of cranberries from start to finish from the perspective of a little boy and his family business. Book is probably best for older children and not little ones.

    Has solid classroom use and has good personal first hand information, but the story and the facts get to mixed up to make either really clear.

    An extra star for originality and good backmatter. I can't recall any other children's books about harvesting cranberries, so that alone makes this a necessary purchase for larger collections.

    Book about cranberry growing. A little dry, but at least has a story element to it...
