When Cow wakes up one morning and clucks, she discovers she’s lost her moo. She sets out to find it, but every animal she meets has his or her own sound, not her missing moo. Discouraged, she heads for the barn. Will she ever find her moo?

This laugh-out-loud tale, with its wide variety of animals, is certain to keep young readers delighted. The colorful illustrations enhance this humorous tale that’s certain to captivate and entertain young children.

Highly recommended. ( )

This is a modern fantasy book. This book is about a cow who wakes up one morning and has lost his moo. He just clucks! He then ventures all around the farm and ask different animals if they have his moo, like a dog, fish, and owl. At the end of the day, he still has not found his moo so as he is heading back to the barn he sees the Hen who he stops and clucks out. To his surprise, it is the hen who has his Moo! They trade voices and both are happy again. ( )

Summary: A cow wakes up and suddenly has a "cluck" instead of a "moo." She then goes out to search for it. Along her journey approaches various animals such as a dog, fish, and goat. She listens to the sound they make to see if one of them has her "moo." She then responds with, "It is not you who has my moo." The story ends with her meeting a chicken that "moo's" so they exchanged their sounds back.
Personal reaction: The story is good for young kids due to the repetition. I would say it would be optimal for 3-4 year olds. There is not a lot of detail in the story, but it is good for going over animals and all of the different sounds that they make. In the story the cow does not end her journey until her sound is found, she is not willing to give up.
Extension Ideas:
1. An animal song can be played that goes over the different animals and the sound they make.
2. Talk to the class about how it can be frustrating when we lose something, but if we stay calm, keep searching, and don't give up then we will have more success than if we get angry that it is lost, frustrated that we have to look for it, and then pout.

This book is about a cow who is trying to find her voice. Children could use this to distinguish the sound of different animals. ( )

Cow has lost her moo—can she find it again?
Having lost her moo, Cow is stuck clucking. The only thing to do is go out and find that moo! Join Cow and her friends as they conduct their vocal barnyard search. Cow tramps through a wheat field and on into the starry night until she is too tired to look any farther. But in the end, Cow and her moo are reunited, and all is well.

The simple repetition will have children chanting right along with Cow—“It is not you who has my moo!
Using a van Gogh-inspired palette and art style, Caldecott Honor winner Denise Fleming has created a character who will appeal directly to a preschooler’s sense of humor.
The Cow Who Clucked is a 2007 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
