Children's LiteratureBig Bill's cows were tired of the sound the milking machine made. They were so unhappy that they quit producing milk, which was bad news for Big Bill. When his wife and children took over milking the cows for a few days, they sang and danced and the cows enjoyed it so much they made more milk than ever. When Big Bill found out how much milk the cows had produced when his family sang to them, he began singing to his cows every day and they produced so much milk that the man who sold Big Bill's milk was amazed. This is a delightful and simple story and children should enjoy reading how music alters the three cows' emotions. The text is simple to read and will help expand children's vocabulary and knowledge of sentence structure by offering simple and complex sentences designed to engage children's imagination. The illustrations are bright and colorful and at times more fun to look at than the story is to read. This book is part of the yellow level of "Read-it! Readers" series. 2005, Picture Window Books, Ages 5 to 8.
