My Thoughts

This beautiful little book is full of color and funny pictures created by a seven year old young lady. It is obvious she is full of humor by the illustrations in this book. I think the purple cow is my favorite! This is a fun book to read to your young child, one that will make you laugh together, each page with rhymes to go with the picture. An example: ‘Today, I met a purple cow; I shook my head and said, “Oh Wow!”

I highly recommend this book for parents to read to their young child! And you will be amazed that the books illustrations are by a seven year old girl. I would purchase the book just for the awesome illustrations!

I want to thank the author Karen Hutchins Pirnot for providing a copy of this book for me to review. I was not expected or required to write a positive review. The opinions in this review are mine alone.
