Hilda Mae Heifer has lost her melodic mi-mi-moo!

A klunk on the head and now Hilda's simply not sure what sound to make.

Moo Who? is a raucous read-aloud for the youngest noisemak

This is a great book for any storytime with preschoolers! The story follows a cow that's been hit by a cow pie and now doesn't remember what kind of animal she is. She travles around the farm and tries to learn what she is. With lots of barn animal sounds, preschoolers will love the funny illustrations and humor. A great book for anyone's collection.

Hilda Mae Heifer was a very enthusiastic singer until one day she loses her moo after getting hit in the head with a cow pie. Now the other animals on the farm try to convince her that she moos instead of sounding like them.

Walking out of the children’s book section at the library this book caught my eye. I picked it up and added to my stack of predetermined books that I needed for my class. Would I even use this book for an assignment I did not know, but what I did know was that the cover illustrations caught my eye and I knew it was a book I wanted to take a look at. I am glad I did, this book is cute funny, and nicely written.
Some may say that the illustrations are scary, but I disagree. Ugly cute is in, just c

Children will love guessing why the cow named Hilda Mae Heifer is different from all the animals in this delightful book.

Hilda loves to sing, but her singing is not loved by others, one day while singing she gets whacked in the head by a cow pie and loses her identity.

Hilda Mae Heifer goes from thinking she is a goose and even a cat until she realizes what and who she is. Kids will delight in comparing Hilda the cow to the other animals she encounters in the book. The ending is satisfying and hi

Hilda Mae is known for her singing...though it’s not always pretty. One day, said cow is hit in the head with a cow pie, and she gets a light case of amnesia. Throughout the barnyard she explores, only to discover that she doesn’t honk, peep, oink or mew. At the end, she gets her moo back, and is happily singing again. The story is great— humorous and consistent and everyone will love Hilda Mae’s character. The pictures on the other hand are a bit scary and not quite as appealing. There are some ...more

Another super silly book. Hilda gets clonked in the head with a hardened cow pie and loses her moo. She searches high and low looking for the thing that she is supposed to do, but nothing she tries feels quite right.

Perfect to read out loud to young kids, Moo Who? is humorous and witty. The unique illustration style adds to the silliness of the story while giving it extra personality. Bright colors invite the reader and listeners in to this crazy world where a cow can lose her moo and find it ag
