Amazing Cows & Blue Moo Review & Giveaway - TWO WINNERS!! CLOSED

CLOSED
We are *huge* Sandra Boynton fans in this house. We have a ton of her books, and the twins love it when we read them. I love every Sandra Boynton book I've read. We even get cries of "More! More!" for the books that might get on an adult's nerves when read five times in a row out loud. We have some favorite characters, of course (Little Pookie, anyone?), but we'll read any of her books. That's what I was incredibly excited when given the opportunity to review two brand new books by Sandra Boynton, ones that are a little bit different from the board books we're used to.
My Take
Amazing Cows
This is probably one of the funniest books I've ever read. It's all about (you guessed it) cows. Cow stories, cow jokes, cow games, cow silliness! There's even a cow comic strip in the middle. The style is classic Sandra Boynton and will have you laughing out loud. The pictures are colorful and engaging and will look familiar to any Sandra Boynton fan. This is a fantastic book for kids aged 4-8, the older of which should be able to read the book to themselves. I guarantee it will keep your child quietly occupied (as it is over 90 pages long) while you do something important (like cooking dinner). You can buy a copy of Amazing Cows on Amazon.com for $7.88. ($$$)
Blue Moo
When I opened up my copy of Blue Moo, I got the shock of my life...it is signed!!! A book signed by my favorite children's book author is a dream come true. :-) In any case, this is the coolest songbook I've ever seen. It comes with a CD (that looks like an old fashioned LP) with several songs recorded by actual musical artists (some of whose names you will recognize, like B.B. King and Sha Na Na). The songbook is split into two sections - one with just lyrics, the other that has the sheet music for each song. This is fantastic first helping your children to learn the words and then later teaching them how to read the music for those songs. As a musician myself, this is great! It's difficult for someone who can't read music to pick out the lyrics to a song within sheet music, so having the separate section with lyrics only is fantastic. The songs themselves are silly and will have your children singing and dancing right along with the music. There are also descriptive pictures on every page that really add to the overall feeling of the songs. The whole book is designed to make you feel like you've gone back in time to the 1950's - the songs, the pictures, etc. I just love it! You can buy a copy of Blue Moo on Amazon.com for $11.53. ($$$)

Overall: We give Amazing Cows and Blue Moo a 10/10!

My favorite is But Not the Hippopotamus, but my babies' favorite is Fuzzy Fuzzy Fuzzy -- or at least it was before they destroyed it. They loved it too much.
