The Cow Said Neigh! | A Review Giveaway And Free Printable Color Sheets

I know it's a little early still to think about Christmas, but this is definitely a great gift idea if you have Preschool or Lower Elementary age kids. Christmas will be here before you know it!

The Cow Said Neigh! written by Rory Feek and illustrated by Bruno Robert, is an adorable children's book. I read it to my kids (preschool and 1st grade) for the first time the other day, and they both loved it! The story follows a chain of events that starts with the Farmyard Cow deciding that he wants to "neigh" like a horse instead of "moooooo" like a cow.

From the publisher, Tommy Nelson:

From New York Times bestseller Rory Feek, one half of the singing duo Joey+Rory, comes The Cow Said Neigh!, a fun and humorous tale of farm animals who wish they were like the other animals . . . which leads to a farm-full of confusion!

The Cow Said Neigh!  

This book has already become one of my children's favorites. We have read it approximately 59 times since receiving it in the mail a couple of days ago! My 3 year old especially likes making the animal noises, and then laughing for days when the animals get all mixed up.

The illustrations are bright and cheerful, a particular family favorite is the face the sheep makes when he hears the duck "baaaaaa" at him.

I also had ALL the feels when I noticed one of the illustrations in particular. The farmer is sleeping in his chair and on the table next to him is a family photo that I can only assume is depicting Rory, Joey, and Little Indy. (Who can think about that beautiful - yet heartbreaking - story of Joey's fight with cancer without completely tearing up? I'm not crying...YOU'RE crying...)

I took the book along with me to our homeschool co-op where I teach a preschool class. I read the book with my sweet little students, and just like my girls they were engaged and captivated by the cute store of the mixed up farm animals. We had fun discussing the story sequence, and the correct sounds that the farm animals should say. The printable coloring sheets were perfect for the preschool class, the sheep seemed to be the popular choice! (See the bottom for the free printable!) 

Reading The Cow Said Neigh! To a Preschool Class

For craft time, the preschool kids made paper plate Cow Face Masks (inspired by Six Clever Sisters), and they had fun "Neigh-ing!" instead of "moo-ing".

I love how each cow mask turned out so unique and different!

Publisher: Tommy Nelson:

The Cow Said Neigh! is the story of some peculiar farm animals who wish they were like other animals on the farm. The cow wants to run free like a horse, the sheep wants a snout like a pig, the dog wants to be inside like the cat. Soon the entire farm is in chaos! With silly farm animal sounds, clever rhymes, and adorable art, The Cow Said Neigh! will have kids of all ages laughing out loud as they celebrate the unique strengths in each of us.
