Here's a COW quiz (I'll start you off with an easy one):

1. Where is the Brown Swiss cow from?
2. How much milk does a cow produce in a day?
3. Which one of the cow's four stomachs rhymes with "Yo! Chase 'em!"?

The answers to these and many other questions about cows can be found in the amusing but factual book about, you guessed it, COWS!

With his clever and humorous text, Jules Older has again collaborated with popular Ben & Jerry's illustrator Lyn Severance. This book is chock-full of facts with rich, bold colors that shouldn't be missed.

Review: Cow

This was the best informational text that I have ever read. It was FULL of facts about cows, yet they were presented with beautiful pictures and in perspective a child can understand. There were time when I had to laugh out loud. GREAT for a read aloud and children of any age. Read full review
