The Cow That Was the Best Moo-ther
Reviewed by Cayden (age 4.5) and Max (age 2.5) Aures and Mom for Reader Views (5/09)
In “The Cow That Was the Best Moo-ther,” Marjorie the cow enters her baby, Daisy, in a beautiful baby contest for cows. However, Daisy is unlike all of the other baby cows; she has feathers, a beak, and hatched from an egg!
Cayden: “That baby is a chicken, not a cow! Cows don’t have beaks and they don’t have the kind of feet that Daisy has. I liked the pictures in the book, especially when the chickens were bouncing on the trampoline. That egg was bouncing on the trampoline too! I hope it didn’t get broken! I liked when Daisy ate the worm off the lady’s hat!”
Max: “The cows have spots but Daisy doesn’t. She has feathers. I liked the page with all of the babies on it!”
“The Cow that was the Best Moo-ther” by Andy Cutbill is a cute book filled with unique, fun illustrations. The different colors, shapes, and patterns used throughout the book are very visually stimulating and entertaining. This book is a follow-up to “The Cow That Laid an Egg” and I think that anyone who enjoyed the first book will enjoy this one as well.
