Funny. Why does she [main character] have spiky hair? I like when Sue Ellen paints bluebonnets in the hay, she’s so creative. I think she’s funny in the four seasons. I give it three stars because of the spiky hair. It’s not my favorite, but I like it.
Parent’s comments: “Don’t Eat the Bluebonnets” by Ellen Leventhal and Ellen Rothberg is a good book. The cow, Sue Ellen, is a creative cow and that’s the best part of the book. After eating the bluebonnets, which she was told not to do, she tries to recreate them by painting fake ones, by painting blue spots on the hay, etc. Finally, she realizes the best bluebonnets are the real ones.
