There’s a Cow in the Cabbage Patch
All the animals in this mixed-up farmyard are out of place. Young readers are asked, “What shall we do?” and encouraged to sort out this puzzle. Collage art in felt, stitched with antique fabrics, buttons, and other bric-a-brac, perfectly illustrates the playful text.
I love the pictures, they looked like they are sewed on. They have button eyes and clothes that I think I can touch, but it’s not real. He was in love with the illustrations, even though he was giggling as we read the book. He loved to take guesses on what animal would be in wrong place next.
We got the idea of making a video review from Blooming Brilliant from http://www.bloomingbrilliant.net/ Hope you enjoy AJ’s first video book review.
AJ borrowed this from the library, I think he liked the cover. Sometimes he is so captivated by the illustrations, as he was with this book. It looks like a collage with sewed on buttons, felt, and quilts. All AJ wanted to do was run his fingers over each page to make sure he really couldn’t feel it through the paper.
The premise of the book is great, repetition of text to get kids engaged and easy for them to make predictions about what animal would be in the wrong place.
