Review: Raisin, the Littlest Cow by Miriam Busch and Larry Day


Raisin doesn't mind being the littlest cow - she loves it, in fact. She loves having everyone's attention, and she loves that everyone helps her when she needs it.

What she does NOT like is change - and, of course, everything changes when a new baby cow comes along. A gentle and sweet story for any child struggling with a new sibling, Raisin's feelings are acknowledged without her having to go over the top. In the absence of constant attention, Raisin discovers that there are things she can actually do all by herself now - including cheering up that new baby, who maybe isn't so awful after all.

I chuckled over many of the illustrations, especially a sopping Raisin bellowing her troubles in the rain. And yes, the new baby does in fact look like a cauliflower. Perfect shower gift for the expectant older sibling, or one to bring home from the library for an out of sorts toddler.
