review: Cows Can’t Jump by Dave Reisman, illustrations by Jason A. Maas
Cows Can’t Jump is a lovely book that is perfect for younger kids. Did I enjoy it though? YES!! We now have another book to add to our nightly reading stack. Cows Can’t Jump reminds us that we all have gifts we are blessed with but some things just aren’t possible for us to do. However, through the eyes of several different animals, we are shown that we should celebrate what others can do, even if we cannot do them. The illustrations are adorable!! I, errr….my kids love the simple expressions the animals have on their faces and the colors used are delightful! I like that my daughter can read this although it is a tad bit long for my 2 year-old nephew. He still enjoyed it but I just read whatever pages he opened to.

Review from my 6 year-old daughter: I like that I can read it. I read it to my cousin who is 3. She laughed and I did too. I think it is funny that cows can’t jump. Because they really can’t jump. I think the pictures are pretty and this book makes me laugh a lot.
Review from my 3 year-old niece: I like the elephant pictures that look like they are painted. The book is so funny. The funniest part was when the cat was about to pounce on the mouse. So funny. I like the story.
Cows Can’t Jump just makes me smile. We all might not be able to do the same things, but we all have things we CAN do. We are all special.
I give Cows Can’t Jump 5 STACKS
