"Rhymes are lively and steady, pitch perfect for a read aloud. . . . Sturdy ink outlines filled with confident swaths of watercolor will stand up well to group viewing. Expect demands for repeat readings, and then break for a snack of, well, you know what." —Bulletin for the Center of Children's Books
"Warm, funny, . . . The big, clear watercolor pictures with thick ink lines leave lots of white space, and the simple rhyming lines, with descriptive words and messy action, will encourage preschoolers to join in. . . . [Kids will delight] in the sounds of the words and the delicious rhymes. —Booklist
"If the very rhythm of the title reminds you of its ancestry—Bear Snores On is Karma Wilson’s earlier best-selling work—then you know you’ll be reading this book over and over again to little listeners. . . . This bovine is outdoing the Cookie Monster." — The Hartford Courant
"The cleverly rhyming text and pace of the story make it perfect for a read-aloud. The whimsical ink and watercolor illustrations add to the humor. An instant storytime crowd pleaser." —School Library Journal

You might get a little craving for cookies and milk after reading this book. It's full of short and simple text with big, bright and colorful illustrations. But what I loved most about this book was the reason why the cow loves cookies. The book describes what happens on a typical farm day. The horse eats hay, the chickens eat chicken feed, the geese eat sweet corn, the hogs eat slop, the dogs eat dog treats but, "the cow would rather eat things sweet." The farmer and cow eat lunch with each other everyday. Together that have worked out a plan to share their food. One brings the cookies while the other provides the milk.
