The Cow Went Over the Mountain by Jeanette Krinsley

Here is a classic Little Golden Book that I haven't seen before.  I'm amazed!

Random House for Kids is publishing these new editions of the old classics and sent me this one for review (thank you).  You can find a copy at your local bookstore.

The illustrations are done by Feodor Rojankovsky and look realistic mixed with a bit of whimsy. 

The calf is sure the grass is munchier on the other side of the mountain.  She tells Mom she's going to check it out and picks up friends along the way.  

What's cutest about the story is that when she gets there, the grass isn't munchier, so she leads the animals to another mountain.  There she finds out she's back home again.

Happy reading!

I too have never seen this book, but when I saw the cover thought it might be something like the song The bear went over the mountain to see what he could see.
But I love the idea of teaching kids that the grass is not always greener, or munchier at someone else's house.
