Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1
The animal characters from Bunting's The Wedding (Charlesbridge, 2003) celebrate a new arrival in this rhyming picture book. When friends of Ms. Brindle Cow and Mr. Bull learn that the pair is expecting a baby, they set off to share in the joyous occasion. Each one brings a gift for the infant along with well wishes for the parents-to-be. The predictably happy ending has a slight twist as the couple welcomes twins. Children will enjoy the rhyming couplets: "The moon and stars lit up the sky./Fireflies came dancing by./They kept repeating to each other,/'Brindle's going to be a mother!'" Love's illustrations, done in transparent inks on Arches watercolor paper, are a charming complement to the gently plotted story. Sharp-eyed readers will notice touches of humor, including a couple of the creatures reading books that connect to their particular species. While not an essential purchase, libraries that own the earlier title will want to consider this one.

    Perfect Baby Shower Gift

    I bought this book online, having never read it, and was pleasantly surprised! First of all, it is a beautiful product with bright illustrations, hardcover, and dust jacket. The story is precious and is written as a rhyme which makes it such a delight to read. I used this book as the guestbook for a baby shower I had planned (all the guests signed the inside cover), and afterward an older lady read the book to the shower guests. It tells the tale of a pregnant Mrs. Brindle cow and her friends the chipmunk, turtle, duck, rabbit, pig, mouse etc. Each of them pick out a gift and arrive at her baby shower full of excitement. In the end of the book, you find out that Mrs. Brindle cow is having twins (a boy and a girl)! What a wonderful keepsake for the mother and child to remember the guests who came to her baby shower with as much love, excitement, and generosity as the characters in this book! You wont be disappointed!!
