Moo by David LaRochelle
Look out — cow behind the wheel! In this humorous picture book, a cow discovers the joys and dangers of driving when the farmer leaves his car unattended. The only text in the book is the word “moo,” allowing children to interpret emotion through the illustrations and by listening to your voice. In a one-on-one reading, ask your child to point to the letters in the word “moo” and ask what other words begin with “m” and “o.” In a group setting, invite the audience to “moo” with you! Talk about the sequence of events in the story and ask your child what might happen next. Reading together and talking about what you’ve read boosts comprehension and are great ways to get your child ready to read!
