Doris Buchanan Smith’s A Taste of Blackberries starts with an idyllic childhood moment: two young friends rambling through a blackberry patch, checking to see if the fruit is ripe. The lazy summer day continues with races and some mischievous apple thieving, and Jaime, the (unnamed) narrator’s friend, always vying for attention. Jaime is fun, but he’s also melodramatic and a bit of a show off, and his antics are sometimes too much for the narrator to take. Everything changes when Jaime stirs up a Doris Buchanan Smith’s A Taste of Blackberries starts with an idyllic childhood moment: two young.

A Taste of Blackberries by Doris Buchanan Smith. Illustrated by Charles Robinson. An ALA Notable Children's Book, A Taste of Blackberries was a Newbery Medal finalist, and won the Josette Frank Award, the Georgia Children’s Book Award, and the Children's Best Book Prize in Holland (Zilveren Griffel). It has been translated into Afrikaans, Dutch, Danish, French, Spanish and Japanese. I bought these books because we needed them for a class reading for my special needs students. This is an excellent book, easy to read and understand, yet still dealing with the issue of death. The characters are well rounded, and the author is kind in her interpretation of how loss effects and affects the friend who is left behind. Good for 5th or 6th graders of regular needs, or older students who have some difficulties with reading comprehension.

What do you do withoutyour best friend?

Jamie isn't afraid of anything. Always ready to get into trouble, then right back out of it, he's a fun and exasperating best friend.

But when something terrible happens to Jamie, his best friend has to face the tragedy alone. Without Jamie, there are so many impossible questions to answer -- how can your best friend be gone forever? How can some things, like playing games in the sun or the taste of the blackberries that Jamie loved, go on without him?

I read A Taste of Blackberries as required reading in a Children's Literature class in college. It's the story of a young boy and how he deals with the sudden death of his best friend due to an allergic reaction to a bee sting. My mother had died unexpectedly of a heart attack only weeks before I read it. I'm so glad our instructor chose to include this book in our curriculum! It gave me the opportunity I needed to participate in class discussions of the fears and pain associated with death. And I found I was not alone. Many among us had already lost someone dear to them. Death is a univeral experience, and yet one for which I, and many of my classmates had been totally unprepared. I wish I had been exposed more to that particular reality of life as a child and believe that A Taste of Blackberries opens the door for just such discussions between parent and child or between children and their friends. I find, because it is fiction, that it can be an easy way to broach a difficult and frightening subject with children, then encourage a sharing of feelings.
I'd like also to say that this is a fairly short book, written for children. It does not deal with all of the more complex, dark issues and feelings that can be associated with death, nor should it. As I said it's written for kids. I personally found the ending of the book to be realistic, yet uplifting and hopeful.

I enjoyed reading this well written story with my rising sixth grader over the summer. I found myself both laughing and smiling at the friendship that was shared between the characters, as well as crying as the story came to an end. A Taste of Blackberries left my daughter and I with thought provoking conversation that lead to us brainstorming about ways that we could bring awareness about the importance of being allergy tested for high sensitivities of different foods or things that can potentially be deadly. We also discussed the dangers that allergic reactions can have on people who are overly sensitive to insect bites, peanuts, or anything else that could be fatal for severe allergy sufferers. I highly recommend this book to all middle school age students.

This book was one of my coworker's favorite. She passed away a few months ago. I purchased a copy for me and the school where we worked for the library.

I got this book at the library to read to my children when they were little. They remember it still. Although the ending is sad, it teaches children a valuable lesson. I purchased this book many years later to read to my grandchildren.
I used this book to help kids discuss how death of a friend or family member affected their lives. It is easy reading and helps kids share their feelings.
