There’s A Cow in the Road by Reeve Lindbergh is a great book, that is written in rhyme, all about a child’s morning routine, with a twist. When the narrator wakes up in the morning to get ready for school, she sees a cow in the road. Then a goat joins the cow! As the narrator continues to get ready, a huge group of animals gather in the road in front of her house. Before she knows it there is a cow, goat, sheep, horse, goose and a pig in the road! Finally, she joins the crowd in the road in front of her house. The crowd is standing there waiting in the road in front of her house... What are they waiting for? They are waiting so they won’t be late, the school bus comes at a quarter to eight! What a cute way to read about time and sequence with children. Each animal shows up at a different time and step in the narrator’s morning routine. The story flows nicely, since it is written in short rhyming sentences. I have loved this story for years and hope you will too! See this book listed in our catalog
