Friday August 9 National Book Lover’s Day: Our Favorite Books Featuring Cows

Today is National Book Lover’s Day!  Today is a great day to remember to take some time out to sit down and lose yourself in the pages of a book.  Reread a passage in one of your favorite novels, or spend some time with your kids by reading a picture book out loud to them (don’t forget to make the voices for all the different characters).


In the past cows have been a historically underrepresented group in literature. Fortunately there are many contemporary works that feature cows as the main subject.  Today seems like the perfect opportunity to create a comprehensive list of Square Cow Movers‘ favorite picture books for children featuring cows!  Without further ado, here is THE LIST!
