Buttercup, the Clumsy Cow – Book Review

Are you clumsy? Have you ever felt clumsy?Do you feel sad when your friends do not want to be around you? How would you have felt like you were Buttercup?

Buttercup is a very clumsy cow and so the other farm animals want to stay away – until her clumsiness saves the day and the chickens!

Buttercup, the Clumsy Cow by Julia Moffatt , illustrated by Lisa Williams

Big, beautiful Buttercup was a clumsy cow. She kicked over the milk bucket and felt so bad. When she goes to see her friend “Hen” she accidentally trips and lands in the nest and breaks all the eggs. Pretty soon all the other animals don’t want her around because she is too clumsy. She is so sad.

One night she hears a squawk in the hen house and when she goes to investigate she falls on top of the fox and saves all the hens! Now everyone loves her and all the animals thank her.

Big, beautiful and very colorful pictures on every page, plus easy words will make it a joy to read and re-read.
