Review: The Cow Who Fell in the Canal

User Review  - Goodreads

This is a sweet story with lovely illustrations. My 3yo loves it. Its main theme is the wish to see a world beyond your borders and how travel enriches with its memories. A good text for Global Education or teaching about countries in the EU. Read full review

Review: The Cow Who Fell in the Canal

User Review  - Goodreads

My childhood book. LOVE the illustrations, they're just wonderful. Black pen and watercolour in alternating pages. Fabulous story about a cow who wants more to life than just eating and making cheese. Her escapade is thrilling and we all get to enjoy Holland with her. Read full review
