A Brown Cow

Bijour Le Tord, Author Little Brown and Company $12.95 (32p) ISBN 978-0-316-52166-6
This warm, gentle picture book celebrates the unquestioning, uncomplicated love that can exist between child and animal. A small girl tells of the brown cow that lives outside her house, enjoying the trees and sky, chewing on the grass and providing milk and cheese for both her and her cat. The narrator's quiet but precise observations paint a genuinely moving picture of easy companionship and heartfelt affection. Likewise, the illustrations--small, framed watercolor washes--will touch readers through their very simplicity and directness. Ages 2-6. (May)
