Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Pre-Grade 1-- A ginger-colored kitten asks various animals if they have any babies in this seemingly simple concept book. A brown cow has one calf, a black sheep has two lambs, a yellow goat has three kids, etc. ; the kitten greets each animal by its trademark moo or baa or bleat. The large print is repetitive and easy to read. Gleaming watercolors completely fill each doubled-paged spread, giving such a lush feel to the book that its sheer attractiveness may captivate readers before its weaknesses become apparent. The blurred, impressionistic outlines of the animals and their mottled coloration make it far more challenging for fledgling counters than the similar, yet more successful, Brown Bear , Brown Bear (Holt, 1992) by Bill Martin, Jr . Nonetheless, Bonner's artwork is very appealing. --Anna DeWind, Milwaukee Public Library

From Kirkus Reviews

``Baa baa, black sheep, have you any lambs? Yes kitty, yes kitty, two woolly lambs.'' From one brown cow to ten rainbow trout fry, Wood rehearses numbers, colors, and animals' names and voices in a repetitive text that will help young listeners learn, though it is not particularly imaginative. In the double spread illustrations, on the other hand, Bonner takes some unusual risks: the colors of his animals are strikingly close to their background--e.g., the orange hen and her yellow chicks are superimposed on a pale orange that might be derived by mixing the two. The result is arrestingly monochromatic compositions in which the animals are still recognizable and pleasingly lively. The appealing kitten who asks the questions ties it all together. Nice.

This book is one of our favorites!
Kidp
She immediately smiles and laughs when I begin reading the story to her every night (because we do read it _every_ night!).
Vania Reckard
Great repetition and you learn the names of animals, their babies, what sound they make, colors, and numbers!

My daughter is 7 months old, and this has been her favorite book for at least 2 months. She immediately smiles and laughs when I begin reading the story to her every night (because we do read it _every_ night!). Several people have commented on the colors of the illustrations being too monochromatic, but I think that is part of the appeal. Some of her other books have very busy illustrations and I think are too much for her to take in. But the large blocks of color in Moo Moo Brown Cow are easy for her to focus on and she loves it. I would highly recommend this book!

My daughter was attracted to this book at 6 months and it continues to be her favorite book (now at 12 months). If I ask her to bring me a book, it's always this one. To me it seems to be the repetition of the similar phrases along with the colors and images that attracts her to it. It's hard, thick pages has stood up to her mauling and chewing on it.
I wouldn't use it as a learning tool as the illustrations, while colorful (great at 6 months) are hard to use as a counting tool and the animals while recognizable, aren't distinctive (ie. Goose and Duck are pretty much the same exect for color).
As a tool to keep her occupied and watch her grin ear-to-ear as we turn the pages together, it's outstanding!!

Format: Board book
This book captured the attention of my 4 year old right away. It was because the concept is simple yet brilliant combination of rhyme, baby animals, color, numbers which all young children adore.The only problem with the book is the color of the illustrastions. For example the white duck was yellow. Sometimes you can barely make out the baby animals because the foreground and background colors were very close. But my son LOVES it.

My son four and my daughter two love this book. The colours are a bit off, eg the white duck is yellow, the red dog has a orange hue to it and the nine small fries are blurry making it hard for 2-4 year olds to count. I've changed the word white duck to yellow duck (using a sticker)because my son is beginning to read. My son has this book completly memorized just like brown bear, brown bear and is very proud he read it.

This book is perfect for introducing very young children to different animals. Each page a "kitty" asks an animal if she has any offspring (in much simpler works of course), to which each animal responds "yes kitty! yes kitty!" and replies with the number off chicks, puppies or what not. Our little one laughs with glee when we get this book out.

I love this book. I think it is good for small children because it teaches them what sounds animals make and how to count at the same time in a fun way.

Jakki Wood, <strong>Moo Moo, Brown Cow</strong> (Red Wagon Books, 1991)

Cute counting book for the pre-reader set with a couple of odd choices in both illustration (oddly, the cat doesn't show up in a couple of pictures) and animal choice (no real way to illustrate the final page without leaving out some of the other animals). However, I don't think the pre-reader set is going to notice either, and truthfully, most parents probably won't, either. *** ˝
