Cowy Cow

By: Chris Raschka


Cowy Cow

Cowy Cow has one hundred ideas, and some might even be good ones.

Rating: 5 *****

A cute story about a cow with lots of ideas, but only a couple are shared. Chris Raschka must be saving the others for several Cowy Cow sequels. One thing he does do is examine Cowy Cow’s ideas and see why she thinks this way, especially to things she doesn’t know about, but still thinks she knows — a trait many toddlers, kids and people share. A good book to discuss this concept with young ones.
