15th July Cow Appreciation Day

I like that there is such a day as Cow Appreciation Day because I love getting out all the 'cow' fiction and putting together a display, with Sandra Boynton's cow puppet/book, Moo Cow Book as a centrepiece. There are so many picture books, but my all time favourite has to be the one that has been around the longest, The Cow Who Fell in the Canal by Phyllis Krasilovsky and Peter Spier. This story about a cow, Hendrika who lives on a farm on a canal near Amsterdam shows children what it is like to really want something and then have it not go perfectly.

Other picture books are:
Cow by Malachy Doyle and Angelo Rinaldi
Kiss the Cow! by Phyllis Root and Will Hillenbrand
The Best Cow in Show and The Cow that Laid an Egg by Andy Cutbill and Russell Ayto
Hamish the Highland Cow by Natalie Russell
Click Clack Moo: Cows That Type by Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin
Meow Said the Cow by Emma Dodd

Chapter books:
• The very clever series Cows in Action (CIA) by Steve Cole
The Big Fat Cow That Goes Kapow! by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton
