Even if your child isn’t obsessed with chickens, cows, or farms, they will enjoy the fun and sweet message contained in Andy Cutbill’s The Cow That Laid an Egg.
In this charming farm tale, one cow feels left out because she doesn’t have any special talents, like riding a bike or doing handstands. The chickens, as a group, decide to pitch in and help their friend by hiding an egg underneath her one night as she sleeps.
The entire farm waits for the egg to hatch, as some naysayers claim cows don’t lay eggs. Once the egg hatches, kids and adults alike will delight at the sweet surprise ending, along with the message that love knows no boundaries, even between species.
