I received a free copy of this book for a fair and honest review. All opinions are my own.
A farm animal get’s tired of their mundane and everyday life in author Pete Lemon and illustrator Maria Todoric’s The Fed-Up Cow. Here’s the synopsis:
Hilda is FED-UP with being a cow. Spending all day doing not much but moo. There has to be something more she can do.
So she decides to be a sheep…
… then a pig
… and even a chicken.
Is the grass any greener on the other side?
Join Hilda, the fed-up cow, on her voyage of self-discovery in this daft but timeless story, written in rhyme.
This wonderful children’s book was a delight to review. Filled with beautiful pictures that will delight and captured the attention of children and parents alike, the story does a wonderful job of showcasing some important topics. Topics like accepting who you are and not being afraid to go out and discover your identity. The book is humorous enough to get the kids laughing while the story does a wonderful job of exploring the theme of identity and the adventure we all go on to find our own. Whether it’s finding our preferred career or our personal identities, this is a struggle we all face at one point or another in our lives, and this children’s book brings this message home for all families.
Overall this was a great book. A fast read that goes perfectly with any family reading session, the original and creative story told by Pete Lemon and Maria Todoric is quite memorable and fun to read. If you haven’t yet, be sure to pick up your copies of The Fed-Up Cow today!
