Overview

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.

A light-hearted, informative look at cows: different breeds, what they eat, how they make milk, and an assortment of other facts.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This book of bovine facts resembles nothing so much as a carton of Ben & Jerry's ice cream in picture-book format. Readers will not be surprised to learn that Vermonters Older and Severance previously collaborated on Ben & Jerry'sThe Real Scoop! And ice cream connoisseurs will find that, not only do the cheery cartoons and splashy black-and-white spots look familiar, even the book's typeface is used with permission from Ben & Jerry's. The first "chapter" sets the jokey tone: the word "first" appears in two-inch-high block capitals, and the text offers words that rhyme with "cow," such as "pow and powwow; chow and chow chow; bow and bowwow!" The 10 sections detail the various kinds of cows, the names of the cow's four stomachs and how to pronounce them ("reticulum" rhymes with "Let's tickle 'em!"), how calves are born, how to make an ice cream sundae and such facts as the creator of the world's largest sundae (Ben & Jerry's, naturally). This trivial but amusing offering would pair well with a pintand not of Guinness. All ages. (Aug.)
Children's Literature - Deborah Zink Roffino
This is primary science presented in a bold and merry format. You will never again pass a field of cows and not recall something gleaned from these pages. The information-surprisingly detailed-is offered in a lighthearted narration that grabs kids attention, offering an occasional aside and plenty of corny jokes. The perky typeface, used by special permission of Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream, folks who have a vested interest in cows, surrounds the oversized, animated characters.

    Had me rolling!

    This book had excellent pictures to accompany the witty and interesting facts about dairy cows. I shared it with my colleagues and they loved it too. The sarcasm is more fun for the adults but my first graders got a lot out of it!
