    One thought on “The Cow Who Clucked”

    1. Cow wakes up and her moo is gone. Where is it? She has to find it and get it back, so she sets off to search the farm. She comes across many animals: fish, snake, cat, dog, duck and more. But none of the animals have her moo. Will she ever get it back?I didn't really care for this. The illustrations are too dark and messy for my liking, and the story is kind of boring. I can see how it would be good for toddlers to match animal sounds with different animals, but I think there might be better boo [...]

    2. I chose this book to read to a 3-year-olds at a preschool. Instead of reading it myself, I played the accompanying CD. The narrator's voice, along with the other sounds, held the children's attention. This book held their attention. They asked to have it re-read to them several times.

    3. Here is a fun little story about a cow that is clucking and searching for the animal who took its moo. Very fanciful and entertaining.

    4. The book, The Cow Who Clucked, starts with a cow that wakes up to realize that she has lost her moo. She begins to search for her moo among all of her animal friends.

Denise Fleming, the author, uses pulp painting to illustrate her books, which is a very interesting art form. This book is a great resource to teach children the different n [...]

    5. This was kinda fun, I thought it would have been better if it wasn't so repetitive though. It needed a little more explanation for how that sounds got mixed up I thought.

    6. This is such a book that is drawn in a way that is so evidently Fleming's style and it's GREAT.  It's also so cute, and is absolutely perfect for young ones learning which farm animals say what in a fun way that almost suspends belief.  I'd definitely recommend this for any teachers with a farm animal unit and for children who really like cows.Review cross-listed here!

    7. One morning cow wakes up and her moo has disappeared so naturally she must go look for it! As she explores the barnyard looking for her moo we are introduced to other animals who let us know what sound they make. At the end of the book cow finds her moo. Other than being a good book for kindergarten or preschool and learning different sounds the animals make I really just don't find this book to be a useful tool.

    19. "The Cow Who Clucked" by Denise Fleming starts by showing a great illustration on the cover of cow with a farm in the background. The cover looks like it was drawn in chalk pastels.

The page with publishing information actually has a Vincent van Gogh quote on it which ties into the binding illustration. The story opens with a cow saying it lost its "m [...]
