Moving to a new home and taking coding classes have kept me home-bound for quite a while now. When I found Cows Going Past at the library, it made me realize how badly I want to get out of town. It’s funny how cows can so strongly represent the iconic adventure of the road trip.
Five Reasons I Love, Cows Going Past
- The cows featured in the illustrations are diverse, colorful and whimsical.
- Just the right amount of repetition and rhyme are contained within this book, which can be especially enjoyable for new readers.
- Throughout the book, there are delightful varieties of rhythms in the words and sentences.
- The book reminds me of all the places I’ve been and the places I want to visit. In fact, I have been wanting to take a road trip to New Mexico. Maybe I should start making some solid plans.
- On the first page it says, “From the window, with nose against glass, everything goes past.” I love this. It’s so simple, but with so much technology available, I can imagine many kids may forget to look out the windows when on a road trip.
Don’t forget to look for the cows on your next adventure…
