Children’s Book Extols Perseverance, Friendship in Overcoming Obstacles

A helping hand goes a long way.

Spencer, WI – WEBWIRE

Never give up.

“The Cow Who Couldn’t Say Moo” is the story of a young cow named Florence, who through perseverance and the help of a new friend, manages to overcome her difficulty, making the “M” sound.

Children who have difficulty with speech sounds at a young age need much encouragement. These children will especially relate to Florence and her difficulty with saying “moo.”

Florence had a good life on the farm, but she had one big problem. She couldn’t say “moo” like all the other cows. No matter how hard she tried, she could not say “moo.” When she was just a little calf, the grown up cows thought she sounded cute and her mother was so proud of this.

As time went by and Florence began to grow up, she still hadn’t learned to say “moo.”  The grown-up cows confronted Florence’s mother and reminded her that Florence was no longer a baby and it was time that she learned to say “moo.” Mother cow felt so humiliated; she talked to Florence and instructed her to go off by herself and practice until she could say “moo.”  Florence felt hurt and embarrassed, but she obeyed her mother.  She tried to say “moo” over and over again, until she broke into tears.  A Moose found her crying under an oak tree and befriended her.  He encouraged her to keep trying and eventually taught her to say moo, which is the first sound in his name. 

There was much excitement in the herd when Florence returned and was able to say “moo” just like all the other cows.  The story ends happily, with Florence and Moose becoming best of friends.

“The Cow Who Couldn’t Say Moo” will soon be displayed at the 2017 American Library Association, which will take place on June 23, 2017. Grab yourself a copy now and see you there!
