The New Baby Calf

Edith Newlin Chase, Author, Barbara Reid, Illustrator, Barbara Reid, Photographer Scholastic $8.95 (30p) ISBN 978-0-590-40457-0
""Buttercup the cow had a new baby calf, a fine baby calf, a strong baby calf. Not strong like his mother, but strong for a calf, for this baby calf was so new.'' Plasticene-relief illustrations give this book an unusual three-dimensional look, as the baby calf grows up with lots of love and mother's milk. It's a sweet story, which should encourage those readers who despair of ever growing up themselves. Reid's observations of country life are on target, from the barnyard full of animals to the pink-cheeked farmer who tends them. (3-6)
