best. cow. ever.

A little on the advanced side for my one-year-old, but he’ll grow into it, and he’s crazy about Steve Gray’s hilarious illustrations. I too am pretty thrilled with it—the first pre-lit book I’ve actually laughed aloud at since I was at the age where I was reading them for myself. Another that hasn’t been in the house long enough for me to gather data on repeated readings (though we did read it again last night not long after our first go-round with it) or how the little guy will react to it over time, but first reaction: this is going to end up being one of our favorites. Good stuff indeed! ****
