Children, both young and young-at-heart will fall in love with Sue Ellen. Her quirky personality and sweetness overshadow her naughty deeds, especially when she tries to undo the wrong she’s done. But who can blame her, when those sweet-smelling bluebonnets are as tasty as they smell! Giggles and laughter will abound at story time and children will beg to have Leventhal’s story read over and over again.

I just read a review of how this could be used to teach the cause and effect strategy to students. Agreed! I will be doing that with my 5th graders this year. Beyond that, my own children simply love this book. They ask for it all the time. Sue Ellen has a mind of her own, and when she makes a poor decision, she will stop at nothing to fix the problem. Great humor mixed with awesome illustrations. It's a winner!!

Don't Eat the Bluebonnets is wonderful story that demonstrates the importance of protecting nature and self control. Sue Ellen is mesmerized by the bluebonnets, so much so that she ignores the warnings from her friends and eats up the entire field. When the bluebonnets fail to come back, everyone is disappointed. Sue Ellen is determined to make it right and won't give up until the field is covered with bluebonnets once more. Children will relate to Sue Ellen's impulse behavior, and parents can use this story to discuss the consequences of one's actions. The illustrations are beautifully done and add the the humor of the story. I highly recommend this book; young readers will surely want to hear this story again and again!

Sue Ellen, a cow, is repeatedly told not to eat the bluebonnets in the pasture. But she can’t resist the urge and eats them all. The bluebonnets don’t come back the next season, however, so Sue Ellen tries to bring the flowers back herself in quite humorous ways. I laughed out loud when reading this story. I couldn’t help but think about my own dieting downfalls – and accepting the consequences of my actions when I ate too much. This makes a great read aloud with fun and colorful illustrations. The factual info at the end adds a nice touch for those of us not familiar with bluebonnets.

K picked this book out from his school library. LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this book. You follow a cow name Sue Ellen who wants to eat the bluebonnets so bad. She is very tempted too and gets told from her best friend not to eat them. Max the Longhorn has a sign and reminds them DO NOT EAT THE BLUEBONNETS! But does Sue Ellen listen of course not, it kind of reminded me of my son being as he does not like to listen. Well when Sue Ellen doesn't listen guess what she has to pay for her actions. The bluebonnets do not grow back and now Sue Ellen misses them. She puts her mind to use and starts thinking of ways to bring the bluebonnets back. My son thought her painting pictures and putting them in the ground was funny being as they were not real flowers. When I asked K what is favorite part was and he said the end, because she got them to come back.  I liked how there was a lesson to be learned in this book. You need to listen and not do something because your actions has consequences. But if you use your mind you can solve the problem you created.  Wonderful book for the older I would say ages 5 on up children.

I read the book to my sixth grade ELA class to illustrate the cause and effect reading strategy. This is a great and effective book for reinforcing the skill. The moral of the story is also appropriate for this age group. Buy your copy today!

This book is a one of a kind and a joy to read to little ones as well as have older children read for themselves. The illustrations are incredible and become as if part of the text. Don't miss it.

I read Don't Eat the Bluebonnets to my pre-kindergarten class. They loved it and wanted me to read it over and over while they chimed in, 'Don't eat the Bluebonnets,' every time we reached that line. The story and illustrations are a winning combination.

This is a great book for Texas elementary schools and should be in ever one of them. I loved the pictures and the story had a moral.
