Minnie & Moo: cows write love poems for Valentine’s Day

Well, lucky us. We managed to get Minnie & Moo – Will you be my Valentine? in time for Valentine’s Day. I spotted the book at a recent parent school council meeting and decided to request it from our local library. Here it is!

Minnie & Moo decide to play cupids (this explains their choice of pink tutus on the front cover) and send love poems to the animals around the farm.

Here they are shooting a love arrow at the other couple of cows on the farm:

Here’s what the love poem for the cows said – I couldn’t have said it better.

 As for Bea’s reaction, it sure made me chuckle!

Minnie and Moo – what do cows do on Valentine’s Day?

A couple of nights ago I attended a monthly parent school council meeting in the local school district’s building. The main lobby has a large glass-covered display where someone carefully decides what props to use for each month’s theme. It’s not the first time I’ve seen cows in that showcase. It’s actually happened twice in the past, once almost exactly a year ago, and the other last October when it included the famous Minnie & Moo cows.

Minnie & Moo are back this month to put us in the spirit of Valentine’s Day. Now that’s what I call happy cows!

We’re big fans of M&M at our house but we haven’t read Minnie & Moo, will you be my Valentine? yet, so I just requested it from our local library. I can’t wait to find out what makes cows so happy. There must be some new bull in town…

Cows welcome everyone back to school

Tonight I attended my first parent school council meeting since last May. It was nice to see the old timers again and meet new parents who want to get involved in the town’s children’s afterschool and preschool care programs. The school district officials running the meeting mentioned after the meeting that they can’t stop seeing cows every day, and they now even have other people share their “cow of the day”. Yeah, it’s that contagious, so be careful when talking to your friends about the daily cow!

On my way out, I glanced at the display case in the building’s main hall and couldn’t help but notice the materials have been changed since the last time I saw them. Obviously, the person responsible for this display case really like cows and makes a point of including them in every new display. Look how cute this cow is, with a flower in its mouth!

Oh, wait, what do I see next to it? A “Minnie and Moo” book! We love Minnie and Moo at our house – the two cows always get involved in the best adventures.

Any good cows from you on this Monday?

Today’s cow is a two-for-one

Today’s featured cows look funny and behave in an even funnier way. Their names are Minnie and Moo and they’re best friends. I found them in the second book we’ve read of the Minnie and Moo series called “Minnie and Moo and the potato from Planet X” by Denys Cazet. Read about the previous Minnie and Moo apparition on this blog.

In this book a very alien-looking potato lands in the field where Minnie and Moo are resting. The alien potato quickly enrolls the cows in a rescue mission to save the earth. Part of the mission is to fix the space tractor (the farmer’s tractor will make an adequate replacement) and to find space fuel. Now, it so happens that space fuel is cow’s milk, but only milk with a very high fat content…

Luckily, Moo is the one on the farm who makes such milk but when she’s asked to provide five gallons of it, she freezes. The other farm animals staring at her make her nervous, so her best friend Minnie asks them to go outside and sing Moo a song, just like the farmer does at milking time.

Of course, the story has a happy ending. Just when I think I’ve seen everything there is to seee about cows, I stumble upon such books as the Minnie and Moo series. Their recipe for success? Wacky stories, funny cows!

Cows and methane – that’s a lot of gas

I want to give credit where credit is due for today’s cow sighting. Thank you to Tilly Bud at The Laughing Housewife for thinking of me with her post today (actually it was yesterday since she lives in the UK). I know she won’t fess up but she can’t help but see cows every day now that she knows about this daily cow theory.

One of my other cow sightings today was in a children’s books where the main characters, two cows named Minnie and Moo, manage to knit an innocent chicken into a sweater and try to get the “bump” out of it. Sitting on it is one of their ideas. Yeah, not the smartest cows on the block, but they’re quite entertaining.

I told Tilly Bud I’d steal her cartoon and repost here. It’s too funny not to share. Cows really are full of it.
