Oct 04, 2019 Moo and Me by Marina Evans, illustrated by Judy Mare
The actual publication consists of 37 pages detailing the story of Moo and his two friends – Houdini and Bambi, also bulls who were added to provide Moo with companionship when he grew older and bigger(!). Houdini and Bambi discovered how much nicer it was to spend time indoors in a warm stable when the weather was cold and wet, so they eventually were provided with their own shelter when the horses did not want to share their stables. Moo ended up living a lot longer than the average dairy male calf (usually slaughtered around 6 months) and his story now will inspire thousands, maybe tens of thousands, of children about the importance of caring and respect for others. The book includes another 31 pages of activities (including a friendship game, vegetable growing activities, coloring pages, information on farm animals, and photographs of humans interacting with farm animals). The “Moo and Me” volume is available via Amazon.
