Product Description

Product Description

Little Cow thinks life will be better on the "other mountain," and convinces a few animals that the grass will be munchier, the bugs crunchier, the water sploshier, the mud sloshier . . . but when they get there, they find that the grass isn't really greener on the other side. This simple, witty tale, brought to life by Caldecott medalist Feodor Rojankovsky, was originally published in 1963 and is now back in print as a Little Golden Book Classic.

This is a fun story about appreciating what you have. I like the repetition of the lines, as I think it's good for babies.

I used to own this book when I was a child, but it got all moldy and ripped up over the years. So, I ordered a new one. Everything's fine.
4.0 out of 5 stars Cute story. 23 Jan 2013

A little cow is unhappy with where she is, so she starts off for the other mountain. Along the way, she talks other animals into joining her. A simple story, but my two year old liked it.
4.0 out of 5 stars The grass is greener yonder, right ...? 11 Sep 2012
By John Gough - Published on
The naive calf (naturally) believes the grass is munchier on the other hill.
Setting off, the calf is joined by a duck, frog and pig, who all agree that their world is better somewhere else. Crunchier bugs, gooier mud, ...
This is one of those delightful stories where, progressively, like The House That Jack Built, or the Old Lady and the Pig who get stuck at the stile, the repeating line, like a chorus, gets longer and longer.
This is also one of those books, like Michael Rosen's We're Going On a Bear Hunt, where there is a voyage outwards that needs to be reversed by a return home, thereby achieving a satisfying completeness.
Can you guess whether yonder exceeds good old home? Do glowing expectations match reality? (Can they ever?)
Did Mother Cow know how it would turn out when the little calf suggested the trek, but quietly agreed for the little calf to test her hypothesis, and have a bit of adventure?
Predictability, repetition, clear bright pictures, and -- with imaginative reading -- lots of animal noises (as with The Happy Man and His Dumptruck -- animal noises are mandatory!), this is a delightful book.
Why only 4 stars?
I know of other books that are arguably better (The Animals of Farmer Jones, for example, or The Little Red Engine, or We're Going on a Bear Hunt), so I am making a quality-call.
But it's still a winner!
