This story was primarily designed to introduce emerging readers (0-5yrs) to spatial vocabulary in a fun and amusing way. It has proven to be popular with local libraries in their regular storytime sessions with young children.
My son was curious at to what the moral of the story was and after reading it several times we came to the conclusion that it's a cute way to use a funny situation to learn new words and build a vocabulary. Overall, this is a fun story to read out loud to young children who will be entertained at the antics of these two fat cows.

I have a particular fondness for rhyming stories and this one is very well done and reminds me of a few favourites that my parents used to read me as a child.

The synopsis for the book describes the book as ‘A new laugh-out-loud rhyming story for young readers.’ and laugh out loud it is. As stated before the boys loved the book and literally had those laughing moments. Oliver actually said that it was a really funny book.

This book is full of humour and just plain fun all-round. The illustrations are expressive and action-packed. When they are married to the text the result is a brilliant story that will have kids (and adults) chuckling at the antics within the covers.

Two fat cows is a laugh-out-loud rhyming story for young readers. I really enjoyed reading this book to Ethan and I look forward to more books by Nigel Tetley.
