Summary
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?
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Why does the cow named in the title love cookies? The answer makes a warm, funny, repetitive story. Hogs eat slop: They love to eat the gooey glop. The geese honk for joy and flap their wings. They love the corn that Farmer brings. But the cow loves cookies. Why? 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. The image of the cow sticking her head through the kitchen window to slurp up the newly baked cookies is as entertaining as the picture of a grinning horse nibbling hay. A culminating scene shows the farmer with the cow taking a sweet snack break together. Even after kids learn why the cow loves cookies, they will enjoy going back to the story's beginning and delighting in the sounds of the words and the delicious rhymes.--Rochman, Hazel Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Wilson's (Bear Snores On) rhymed cumulative poem introduces children to the kinds of food farm animals eat. "When-ever Farmer feeds the horse,/ he feeds the horsey hay, of course." Each stanza ends by emphasizing that, "the cow loves cookies," and portrays the cow stealing cookies from a round-faced baby or pilfering cookies from a cookie jar (while wearing a rather guilty expression). Hall's (City I Love) watercolor illustrations, lined in thick, black ink, feature an old-fashioned, idyllic farm with a white-bearded farmer, cookies the size of pancakes, and a gaggle of hungry animals. "So why does the cow love cookies?" Because the cow and farmer have made a deal-every day they have a picnic lunch, and "when the two sit down to munch,/ he takes cookies from a tin/ and Cow gives milk to dunk them in." While some parents may object to a book that encourages making cookies one's primary food group, children will identify with the blissful look of the farmer and his cow who "both love milk and cookies!"
