I love the WordPress new photo gallery feature and this is a great way to display a lot of photos in one post. I also love the opportunity to review a year of cows by showcasing the best of the year. If you missed my Top 10 Best Cows of 2011, make sure you take a look.
This year, there was no runaway cow (at least that I know of) and no ugly cow sofa, but still plenty of memorable cows for 2012. They include my very own cow slippers, as well as a whole shelf of cow slippers I almost bought, skiing cows, cow artwork, the Skinny Cow, the American Flag cow, the cow from the Puss in Boots movie, the udder rings, the birthday balloon cow, the grossest birthday card cow, the cow flashlight, the bug-eyed cow, the hot air balloon cow and the lawn mowing / bulimic cow. Enjoy!

A few weeks ago, I borrowed a book at the library called Cat Tale by Michael Hall. Since then, it’s been one of our favorite reads and you’ll soon understand why. And somehow, in a book called Cat Tale, you can spot a cow.
Cat Tale by Michael Hall
In this very funny book, three cats named Lillian, Tilly and William J. are out for a day. The story is full of homophones and a delight to read if you enjoy wordplay. It goes like this, “They pack some books and kitty chews. They chose a spot. They spot some ewes.” And so on. Until they meet our not so friendly bovine, the steer.
Cat tale – the tree cats meet a steer
The story and the wordplay continue until the words start getting mixed up and our not so friendly steer comes back into the story. This is our favorite page spread in the book.

I love this book and my kids love it too. If you’re looking for a fun story to read with kids age 3 to 10, this is it. And there’s even a cow in it.

I got to see my daily cow early today. Very early. As in, breakfast time early. It was quietly waiting for me on the kitchen table, where I was about to place my kids’ breakfast plates.
Are you ready to see it? Ta-da!
Safety Zone Big first grade workbook with a cow, and a pig, and a duck
Look, it’s Safety Zone’s Big first grade workbook with a cow, and a pig, and a duck on the cover! Did you see what they’re in? A space shuttle! And the cow is driving it. I can truly say this cow is doing something no cow has ever done before. That’s how smart kids will be when they finish this workbook. I can’t wait.
Actually I really can’t say anything bad about this Big first grade workbook because I really like it and so does my kid. All of the Safety Zone workbook series are very well designed, with lots of colorful activities that are fun to complete and kids get to learn and practice a lot, without even realizing it.
I just can’t get that image of the cow driving a space shuttle out of my mind, though. Can you?

I recently borrowed the hilarious children’s book Duck on a Bike by David Shannon from the library.
Duck on a bike by David Shannon
Would you expect to see a cow in this book? Well, there’s only one but it appears on several pages and makes quite a lot of funny faces worth sharing.
In this book, Duck tries a child’s bike and the farm animals all think it doesn’t look like a good way to have fun. Here’s Cow’s reaction as Duck rolls by her: “A duck on a bike? That’s the silliest thing I’ve ever seen!”
Duck on a bike – duck rides by the farm’s cow
By the time Duck has paraded in front of all the animals, a group of kids on bikes arrives the farm. The kids leave their bikes by the barn and suddenly, the farm animals get an idea. Can you guess what it is?

Have you ever seen a cow and a horse with bigger eyes?
Are you ready for the grand finale? Here’s how you can entertain farm animals with a bunch of bikes. I present you cow on a bike. And horse on a bike, goat on a bike, pig on a bike… I think they’re ready for the circus.

If you’re a regular of this blog, you know I’ve featured knock knock jokes with cows in the past. If you’re not a regular, you can view them here and here, both out of Sandra Boynton’s Amazing Cows book.
I recently got a new knock knock joke book for my son at the library and this one, appropriately named Knock Knock, was written and illustrated by several famous children’s book authors.

Well, wouldn’t you know it, there are two cows in this book. One is technically a wilderbeast, but the other is a real, common cow. What’s interesting is that Sandra Boynton has a very similar joke in her Amazing Cows book, but her book was published in 2010 and this one in 2007. So I guess she’s the copycat… Her joke’s drawings are still very funny so I’ll feature them in the next post, if I can get a hold of that book.
Here’s your knock knock joke to start the weekend with laughs:
