I Am Cow Hear Me Moo hardcover
And yet, with our Pavlovian voraciousness for constant positive reinforcement, we hang our self-respect on external validation all too often and keep ourselves small by people-pleasing , afraid of what others might think. Written by Jill Esbaum and illustrated by Australian artist Gus Gordon , who also gave us the immeasurably delightful Herman and Rosie , it tells the story of a brave cow named Nadine who boasts being afraid of nothing and parades her fearlessness across various adventures as her friends look on admiringly. One day, Nadine finds herself in the woods with her two friends, enjoying every bit of the venturesome exploration. But when night falls, Nadine suddenly finds herself alone and, to her own surprise, afraid. She takes the touch of her own tail for a dangerous intruder and jolts into a rocket-like run for her life, falling off a cliff and into a creek.

Whimsical but bold drawings give the animals and settings depth and interest. Children will root for Nadine, and adults will appreciate her humble experience. A lifelong lover of stories and animals, Jill is now a full-time writer. Growing up in rural Iowa, where she still lives, Jill often went camping with her family--though none of their trips were as exciting as Nadine's! Gus Gordon grew up on a farm in the mountains, went to agricultural college, and even worked on a cattle farm. Eventually, he realized he loved drawing cows and other things more than he loved living with them, so he bravely turned to illustration. Gus now lives with his wife and three kids in Sydney, Australia.

Thank you! Esbaum presents a wobbly story about a cow of wobbly confidence though no shortness of bluster. In this rhymed production, Nadine and her bovine buddies, Starla and Annette, live on a farm at the edge of the woods. Nadine brags to them that she fears nothing, not even the woods. Tentatively, Nadine takes a step, then another, and soon enough they are tootling about in the woods having a good time. The sun starts setting; Starla and Annette grow uneasy.
