Moo!by David LaRochelle, Mike Wohnoutka
Pairing two talented creators who managed to tell a complete story with just one word-MOO-this
When Cow gets her hooves on the farmer's car, she takes it for a wild ride through the country. Moooo! But a bump in the road brings this joy ride to a troublesome end. Moo-moo. . . Has Cow learned her lesson about living life in the fast lane? Moo?
Pairing two talented creators who managed to tell a complete story with just one word-MOO-this imaginative picture book will have readers laughing one moment and on the edge of their seats the next, as it captures the highs and lows of a mischievous cow's very exciting day.
“This book is bold, original, and funny, and should be part of every picture-book collection.” School Library Journal, starred review
“An utterly fun moo-aloud.” Publishers Weekly
“Good barnyard fun, with nods to Mo Willems' aspirational Pigeon and Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin's enterprising Duck.” Kirkus Reviews
“A delightful visual adventure, easy to pair with Nancy E. Shaw and Margot Apple's Sheep in a Jeep (1988) and open to many sessions of independent rereading.” Booklist

The kids I babysit for absolutely love his book!
This is a fantastic book for young children! It is a fun, simple story that helps children (and adults, too)understand the importance of voice inflection, as well as voice modulation when communicating a message. The print size informs the reader when the words should be read in a loud voice or a quiet voice. The punctuation marks and the pictures suggest the correct voice inflection. THE BEAUTY OF THIS BOOK IS THAT AFTER HEARING THE STORY READ ONE OR TWO TIMES, MOST CHILDREN CAN "READ" THE BOOK BY THEMSELVES.
I originally planned on returning this book p; which was a gift to my 5 year old; because it seemed to "babyish" for him. However in trying to convince him the book was silly I actually started saying "moos" very animatedly and my kids was full of giggles and laughter and just busting up. He then bragged to his sister p, who is 10, and I read it to her the same way and had the same results.....go figure!
I absolutely love this book! I am a mother and an elementary school librarian. I read this book to the Pre-Kindergarten class at my school and they ebrupted with laughter and demanded I read it again immediately after finishing it. They were thrilled that they could read the book too since it only has two words "moo" and "baa". I plan to sneak this book home and read it to my 14 month old son who loves mooing like a cow. This is a must buy for any child especially young ones!
