This is a witty, amusing, and well-crafted story that reminds the reader that camaraderie and love can be found in unexpected places. One of the greatest merits is the relatable characters. Although Marjorie is a cow, the feeling of sadness and failure in comparison to other peers is something to which many children can relate. ( )

Possibly a little too busy for a preschool storytime but I think the text could work. ( )

Love the idea of the book that 'anything is possible' and how friends can make a great difference in your life. ( )

This is about a cow who couldn't ride a bike or stand on her head, so she didn't feel special. The chickens helped her feel special by putting an egg below her and making her feel like she laid an egg. This is about helping others feel equal and welcome. I would use this book in my classroom. Appropriate for grades K-3.

Good book for older kids. There is also a lesson to be learned when it comes to being unique and bullying. ( )

Marjorie is an insecure cow who wishes she had some special talent. She can't ride a bicycle or do handstands like the other cows. Then one morning (thanks to a bunch of scheming chickens and a paintbrush), Marjorie is astonished to discover something extraordinary: shes laid an egg!
