Berry Books for Summer

Hello there! Hope you are having a lovely summer so far...As we prepare for the upcoming holiday weekend we thought we would collect a few books from our archive to celebrate the joyful days of sunshine and warm, juicy berries. In addition we are including Off the Shelf Shop with some berry book-inspired toys and treasures. You might also enjoy Red, White, and Blue Cornbread and Hooray for the Red White and Blue Painting to help you celebrate Independence Day. 

Happy 4th of July from Off the Shelf!
