The Cow That Went Oink
“The Cow That Went Oink” by Bernard Most pushes readers to think about tough issues. The cow oinks and the pig moos. Other animals on the farm laugh at them. Even when the cow and pig are trying to learn how to say the appropriate sound, the other animals laugh at them. The cow and pig continue to persevere and are successful at learning their new sounds. This can teach young readers not to give up and not to be discouraged because people laugh at you. The illustrations fill the page with colors of yellows, browns and oranges. They color reminds me of the paint from the “paint with water” books. There is very little text in the book, but the words “moo” and “oink” are always written in all capitals. This would be good for shared reading and the students could participate when these words were to be read. The big idea is to tell a story that teacher readers not to give up. This was not my favorite book, but made its point with very simple text. ( )
