I can certainly relate, both to the daughter & the mom, bookworm that I was & am. So glad the mom recognized the quiet, compliant one's need for attention.

Beautifully written, lots of expressive from-the-heart phrases. Only thing I felt was a teensy bit out of place was the word "Blueberries" in the title as they played a much more minor role than I was expecting.
Sweet story , told well! What a wise mother...
What a sweet, tender story. The only thing that bothered me about the story...I'm a nurse, and I couldn't help but think that the child's weight loss and dark circles under her eyes was going to play a (sad) part in the story.
I was the bookworm child who didn't often get the first helping of attention in my house, so this story resonated with me. Great descriptions, and I loved the ending!
