Publisher's Description

The horse loves hay, the chickens need feed, the geese munch on corn, the hogs devour slop, the dog eats treats, but the cow loves…COOKIES? Don’t miss this barnyard treat, featuring a new cover, from the author of the New York Times bestselling Bear series.

With an original twist on the ordinary barnyard picture book, this read-aloud from bestselling author Karma Wilson is a clever exploration of a curious incident on the farm. As the farmer makes his rounds each day, most of the animals chew on the foods a young reader would expect. But when it’s time to feed the cow, she feasts on a special treat! Wilson's signature style and Marcellus Hall’s spirited watercolors will delight children on and off the farm—because when it comes down to it, who doesn’t love milk and cookies?

Editorial Reviews

*"Well-executed, bouncing rhyme will have children bobbing their heads. . . . Hall’s sure-handed strokes of graphite carve out friendly, watercolor animals and farm vistas. . . . This self-assured, simple and successful picture book closes with a goofy, age-old punchline that will get giggles every time. --Kirkus, STARRED REVIEW
"Rhymes are lively and steady, pitch perfect for a read aloud. . . . Sturdy ink outlines filled with confident swaths of watercolor will stand up well to group viewing. Expect demands for repeat readings, and then break for a snack of, well, you know what." --Bulletin for the Center of Children's Books
"Warm, funny, . . . The big, clear watercolor pictures with thick ink lines leave lots of white space, and the simple rhyming lines, with descriptive words and messy action, will encourage preschoolers to join in. . . . [Kids will delight] in the sounds of the words and the delicious rhymes. --Booklist
"If the very rhythm of the title reminds you of its ancestry—Bear Snores On is Karma Wilson’s earlier best-selling work—then you know you’ll be reading this book over and over again to little listeners. . . . This bovine is outdoing the Cookie Monster." -- The Hartford Courant
"The cleverly rhyming text and pace of the story make it perfect for a read-aloud. The whimsical ink and watercolor illustrations add to the humor. An instant storytime crowd pleaser." --School Library Journal
