Children's Book Review: The Cow Loves Cookies
The Cow Loves Cookies
Written by: Karma Wilson
Illustrated by: Marcellus Hall
Published by: Margaret K. McElderry Books, 2010
The horse loves hay, the chickens need feed, the geese munch on corn, the hogs devour slop, the dog eats treats, but THE COW LOVES COOKIES? A twist on the ordinary barnyard picture book, the latest read-aloud from bestselling author Karma Wilson is a clever entry into an curious incident on the farm. As the farmer makes his rounds each day, most of the animals chew on the foods a young reader would expect. But when it's time to feed the cow, she feasts on a special treat! Wilson's signature style and Marcellus Hall's spirited watercolors will delight children on and off the farm--because when it comes down to it, who doesn't love milk and cookies?
* Told in rhyme this is a cute, simple story about farm animals and the food that they like to eat. The horse eats hay, the chickens eat feed, the hogs eat slop, etc.....but what does the cow like to eat? In this book, the cow loves cookies! And really, who doesn't enjoy a good cookie?!! Our family was introduced to the author, Karma Wilson, with her Bear series. This was another book that the kids enjoyed.
