There's A Book

The Cow Loves Cookies by Karma Wilson and Illustrated by Marcellus Hall

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?

With an original twist on the ordinary barnyard book, the latest read-aloud from bestselling author Karma Wilson is a clever exploration of a 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?

The Cow Loves Cookies was a Cybils Picture Book Finalist for 2010, the first year I judged in the awards program, and while reading it our family absolutely fell in love with it. Karma Wilson is most well known for her Bear Snores On series, but I think this may be our family’s favorite of her books.

    This picture book gives me the same warm, fuzzy feeling as Doreen Cronin’s Click Clack Moo. The illustrations also remind me of that book though it’s a different person. Can’t wait to read it!!
