In poetry that winds and wends like a creek through a farmer's field, we journey through one lovely day in Buttercup's life. Whether she is ruminating on the mud beneath her feet or the moon and the stars in the blue-black sky, she draws us deep into her rich and wonderful world.

Youth Services Book Review - May 8, 2018
"This is a rich, beautiful rendering of how cow life should be…A nice read aloud for storytimes focusing on the lives of farm animals."
