    I liked this book and how informational it was. However, I probably wouldn't read this aloud to the class unless it pertains to a subject I am teaching. I would keep this in the classroom for students that like to read informational books or like animals/farms.

    I really enjoyed this book because while it was informational, it was also funny which makes it more appealing to students.

    I liked reading this and learning about cows and the different breeds. I loved the humor it has in it. It taught me new things I did not know about. the cud part was gross but that's how they eat.

    This would be good for an animal or science lesson. It answers many curious questions that students have at a young agar. It's very informational, yet playful and kid friendly. It made me chuckle!

    I think this is one of the best informational books I have ever read. I loved how it wasn't like any other informational text in the sense that this book was actually fun to read. I'm not saying that there hasn't been any other informative book that I enjoyed reading, but this book was so engaging. I loved how the language was very conversational- it had an informal feel to it that I think kids would enjoy. I also liked how the illustrations were colorful and cartoon-like. I also appreciated the different "recipes" the book had towards the end. I would love to have this available in my classroom library.

    I thought this was a great informational book, and I must say I now know so much more about cows than I really wanted to. One thing that I thought was great was that it numbered each interesting fact. Also, the diagrams used help explain some of the more complicated things about cows, such as its stomachs. One thing that I did not like about this book was that i felt like it went out of focus when it went on about ice cream, and how to make it on a couple of the pages. I didn't feel like it stayed on the main topic about cows.

    Cows! Cows! Cows! It’s funny I see cows about everyday living in South Dakota, but in reading this book I found out there is a lot of stuff I do not know about cows. Like did you know that the average cow produces 100 pounds of manure a day? Yeah, neither did I. Now, that is a lot of poo! I enjoyed how the book was sectioned off was each section explained a question that either is frequently asked about cows like does chocolate milk come from cows or questions that get the reader thinking like how many stomachs does a cow have. Who knew cows could be so interesting?

    The author did a great job for making this book interesting to read. The book discussed what cows eat, where they live, and what cows produce. Some interesting things that I learned from reading this book is that cows have four stomachs. I also learned how the sundae got it's name. I would love to have a copy of this book in my classroom. I think my students would find this book interesting and would learn a lot from it.

    This was a very informative book that I could really relate to. This would be a wonderful book to read to students so as to teach them more about farm life. I would also like to read this before going on a field trip to a farm. That way the students get to learn so many facts about the cows they are going to see. Then while on the trip, I would ask the students some pop questions that relate to the information in the book.

    This book is probably one of my favorite informational books. It's funny and it teaches a lot more about cows than the reader probably wants to know. I liked how it was divided up into "chapters" and gave important information in each section. I also liked that it talked about random facts like where cows come from and the different types of cows. I would love to keep this book in my classroom as a read-aloud during biology units at any age.

    Cows actually have 1 stomach, but with 4 compartments. That part of the book is a little off because they do not have 4 stomachs. I liked this book, but halfway through I lost interest. I liked that it was funny. I would use it to introduce nonfiction or to talk about cows. It would be good for a research project. I like the pictures. I would read this before a field trip to Ag Day.

    There was a lot I did not know about cows in this book. From there breeds to how they make milk. To be honest its quite gross how they eat but I don't think that will keep me from eating ice cream. I liked the language this book used. It was worded such that it would really appeal to young children. I also think we all need to be more educated on what we are eating and where it comes from and this book definitely does that.

    This book was a pleasurable read because of the author’s jokes and comical personal voice throughout. This is a great book to use when needing to find out facts about cows but as a book I would want to pick for fun, this book wouldn’t be one of my choices. However, the author’s playful words allowed the text to be less dense. I also enjoyed how the pictures labeled and explained the text.

Learn about different breeds, foods, terms, how they make milk,how calves are born, ect. Did you know...? Cows have 4 stomachs. They eat 60-200lbs of food a day! and they poop 100 lbs a day! Fun book!

    This book surprised me. I expected to be bored, but instead I was very interested and amused at points. This is an in-depth look at cows. It gives so much information, but presents it in a relatively informal way, and has humor at times. I would definitely use this book in the classroom for various purposes.

    Cow is an great book to introduce students to nonfiction and informational texts. It is interactive and humorous as well. This book answers many questions students might have about the specific topic of cows and could even be an example for a writing piece older students may be doing about and informational topic.

    This story was a fun read aloud with lots of humor and interesting parts that would make the kids laugh and stay intrigued. It provides a lot of information for kids about cows and even goes into the fun children's Question of whether chocolate milk comes from brown cows. Very funny and a good book to have in the classroom when discussing farm animals or cows.

    I thought this book would be for older students as younger students would get bored easily with all of the facts. It was very informational which I liked if you were doing a report on cows. I don't think I would use this a read aloud book for younger students because it was too long and too detailed. Older students would like it because it still had some humor in with all of the facts.

    This book was packed with so much information about cows. It was laid out nice enough to include pictures and still be very informative. Some of the information was funny, such as brown milk does not come from brown cows. Other information was more serious, like how cows have 4 stomachs. This setup would encourage kids to read it because it did not look like a boring informational book.

    Everything you want to know about COWS in a funny but factual way and a humorous illustration. Great book for active learners. I would choose what I read out loud because there is a lot of information that students would get restless with, if I read every page. I know that country folk would love this book.

    This book is probably the first informational book that I've read that was humorous. I love to learn new information and facts about different subjects, but informational books can tend to be wordy and boring. This book, by no means, was boring. I could see this being a hit with most children because they like to laugh and they like to learn about new things.

    A great informational book about cows. There is humor strung along with the facts to keep this book from being to boring with all of the information. The illustrations are tastefully done, and compliment the storyline. A great book for any classroom, and I intend to find a copy for my own. It would be a great mentor text when introducing informational books.

    This is quite possibly one of my favorite informational books. I found the humor to be quite funny and educational at the same time. This would be a fantastic book to read to introduce informational writing.

    I thought this book was very informative. It tells a lot of information about different types of cows. The illustrations are very colorful and there are lots of diagrams and labels to help the reader understand what is happening.

    This book was very funny for being a non-fiction! I really enjoyed the illustrations and the humor. This book would keep kids attention and I think they would love the "gross" parts. It would be great for a farm unit, as it teaches about all types of differnt cows.

  • Brent Rogers

    Cow is all about different types of cows and the many purposes for them. The book mentions when they came to America. An interesting fact in the book is that cows have four stomachs. I would use this during a unit about cows, farm animals or as an informational read aloud.

    This is one of the best non-fiction picture books I have read! I love how humorous and witty the author is in explaining Cows and how we get milk. I love all the diagrams and extra information! I could see a whole theme built around this book.

    This is a great informational book to read-aloud, or to help older children doing research or projects. It is humorous and informational. The entire book may not be appropriate, depending on the age. It is very lengthy.

  • Lindsey

    Did you know that all cows are females? Did you know they have more than one stomach? Do you know that a cud is? Well, this book teaches all there is to know about cows. I would use this book to teach about cows to younger children.

    This was the best informational text that I have ever read. It was FULL of facts about cows, yet they were presented with beautiful pictures and in perspective a child can understand. There were time when I had to laugh out loud. GREAT for a read aloud and children of any age.
