Oh no! Cora’s lost her spots!

Join her on an adventure around the farm to find them—or will she decide she wants new spots?

Anna the cow begins life on a farm in late August. Two weeks later she finds herself at an auction, crammed in a crowded pen with seven male Holstein calves. Nobody wants to buy the animals until farmer Victor Sullivan takes pity on them, not suspecting that one is female. Soon the farmer’s young son adopts Anna, and together they experience all the trials and joys of life on a busy farm. Seasons change, crops are harvested, and animals are born and die — these events always punctuated by gatherings of family and friends.

What should you do if you see a cow? Moo! Young readers will love following the instructions to make animal sounds and discovering which farm animal is hiding behind the flaps.  This is one of my favorite Books About the Holstein Cow in this list.

Have an udderly great time with Crazy Cow as she plays with all of her farmyard friends, jumping in puddles, hiding among the flowers, dressing up and dancing in the hay. Bright illustrations, gentle rhyme and an interactive sound button will keep your child amused.

A wonderful pick-me-up for an adult or a rhyming read-aloud for a child, Holy Cow, I Sure Do Love You! expresses feelings of affection and appreciation, all conveyed with Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld’s signature lighthearted humor.

A madcap, yet moving, story about having the courage of one’s convictions, even when others doubt you, from the creator of ‘Albie’, Andy Cutbill, and the award-winning illustrator, Russell Ayto.

Do cows sing? Do cows cuckoo? All I know is cows go . . . MOO! Simple, rhythmic, and lots of fun, this big, brightly illustrated board book will have kids happily imitating all kinds of animal “talk.”

With a plush finger puppet permanently attached to the book and peek-a-boo holes in every page, this charming board book creates fun along the way as parents and children play and read together.

They can stand in line (sort of), use indoor voices (perhaps), and are capable of sharing (rumor has it), so the Click Clack critters are ready for school…but is school ready for them?

Aliki takes readers on a guided tour that begins with grazing cows, proceeds through milking and a trip to the dairy, and ends with some different foods made from milk. This revised edition of Aliki’s 1974 Green Grass and White Milk is an even more fun-filled and informative explanation of milk’s trip from green grass, to cow, to a cool glass on the table.

This attractive board book for toddlers in Barron’s Look at Me series features color illustrations that present animals in naturalistic portrayals, placed in realistic, detail-filled settings. Each book tells a story about a baby animal and its mother, describing in very simple language how the mother animal keeps her baby from getting into trouble. This is the perfect Book About the Holstein Cow for preschoolers.

Peter the cow is having a BAD day. After missing the bus and wiping out on his bike he loses his temper and gets in trouble. To make matters worse all the other kids are teasing him, calling him Moody Cow. Peter’s day just seems to get worse until his grandfather comes over and teaches him how to settle his mind and let go of his frustration through a simple and fun exercise.
