'Til the Cows Come Home...

proves once again that reading is really FUNdamental and we certainly like to focus on the fun!  We were thrilled when we received our very own copy of 
'Til the Cows Come Home 
by Judy Perry Drewett.  

Here we sit captivated as our friend Holt Stein and his little brother Hal get ready to read us 'Til the Cows Come Home (for the third time).  It's such a great story!

Here is what our Moo has to say about it...

" 'Til The Cows Come Home by Judy Perry Drewett is an udderly adorable and creative book with wonderful illustrations.   Thomas is introduced to the phrase "'til the cows come home". As a literal thinker, each time it is repeated, he imagines those cows right there with him from his bedroom to the lunchroom.

Drewett does a fine job using the art of repetition in her story. This will surely keep younger children interested and help them learn to read too. This is also a good way to introduce children to idioms.  

The illustrations add a great deal to the story making it that much more fun to read!  

I recommend you get this story now and do not wait 'til the cows come home!"

  2. Hi Lisa!
    This is absolutely the cutest picture of the cows about to read my book, 'Til the Cows Come Home to their moose friends! How clever you are to do a review of my book in this very creative and unique way! This was a total, pleasant surprise for me to see my book displayed like this! I really appreciate your review. I couldn't have said it better myself. You stated every reason why I wrote this book for little children: repetition to teach them to read, introducing them to idioms, and the stunning illustrations so the children would love the book and want to read it again and again!
    Now, I had better get busy and write my reviews for The Moose at the Manger, or you'll be sitting and waiting on me 'til the cows come home! ;-)
    Thank you again, my friend!
