Pick of the Week: Everywhere the Cow Says "Moo!"

Everywhere the Cow Says "Moo!" by Ellen Slusky Weinstein, illustrations by Kenneth Andersson (Boyds Mills Press, 2008)

If a dog barks in Japanese, does it say, "bow-wow" or "wan-wan"? This is a fun book with easy-to-read text that introduces children to the sounds that animals make in English, Spanish, French, and Japanese. And a trip around the world with a variety of animals elicits an interesting surprise!

This is a book to share with toddlers and preschoolers, or anyone interested in learning some of the sounds animals make in other languages.
