From the critics

From Library Staff

It's rare that you find a picture book where the children's librarians reading the book for the first time start laughing out loud but that's what you get with Moo. The concept is simple: Cow plus car = ruh-roh. There's a reason we don't provide our Holsteins with driver's licenses. Practicall... Read More »

Loved this picture book! It has only one word Moo! but it conveys so much emotion. Can be read aloud in a storytime, but the Moo sounds need to be emphasized. Fun story!

Moo! (translation...Fantastic!) With a single word, this cow is able to express a huge variety of colours and meanings: peacefulness, curiosity, fear, and sulking are some. Both the pictures and the changing typography of the word convey the joy, and then the trouble this cow gets into when one day she drives off in the farmer's car. Lesson. Don't leave a car within a cow's reach. It will get wrecked, and there will be a policeman involved. The layout and angles act like a camera, changing from long shots to close-ups, as well as giving a dynamic over the shoulder look, and even a dropping-off-the-edge-of-a-cliff look to perfectly portray the story. Brilliant colours, especially in the background, assist in giving definition to the atmosphere that the one word is trying to get across. Moo! is hilarious, and yet it has a subtle level of sophistication that allows parents to enjoy it as well. With just one word, it is essential for this title to be read out loud, and with many funny voices; perfect for storytime.

The perfect story time book! Both kids and parents loved this story. With the different uses of the word "moo" it also can be used to teach voice and reading with expression.

Take one cow, one car, and one word: moo! Follow the adventures of a cow who steals the farmer’s car for sale and goes for a wild ride. Watch as the word “moo” changes directions and size; a quintessential book for Noticing Print All Around.
