Counting cows

on the farm –

no two alike.

Acknowledgements:

COUNTING COWS by Woody Jackson – Woody Jackson’s bold cow paintings in a colorful counting book, with a surprise at the end.

ON THE FARM by David Elliott and Holly Meade – A Bank Street College Best Children’s Book of the Year. David Elliott’s fun verse, and the late Holly Meade’s beautiful woodcut illustrations make this a picture book to read many times over.

NO TWO ALIKE by Keith Baker – A rhyming walk through the forest in search of things that are exactly alike. A classic picture book for younger listeners.

Summer

Summer, Summer, more Summer. A good excuse for a book spine haiku.

my many colored days
