The Cow That Laid an Egg by Andy Cutbill

Cowy Cow by Christopher Raschka
Cowy Cow has so many ideas! In fact, she has one hundred of them: green is the best color ever; chewed grass tastes like a cookie… and 98 others (that remain unmentioned)! The unexpectedness of this stationary cow waxing philosophical tickles and inspires. Chris Raschka’s award-winning art style and unrivaled wit is sure to charm readers of all ages.
The Cow Tripped Over the Moon by Jeanne Willis
Jumping over the moon is fine as long as you don’t trip–and end up needing cow-size bandages. And having a blackbird peck off your nose can leave a person very sore indeed. Led along by bright, humorous illustrations and an energetic rhyming text, little readers will have fun guessing who the next Storyland victim might be, following hints like, “Who could be covered in egg?” and “Who went up and tumbled down?” Look out, here comes the ambulance!
If You See a Cow by Richard Powell

In this interactive novelty board book, little ones discover and react to the animals hidden behind a shaped flap on every spread.
