Easy to hold book, lightweight, ideal for kids big and small. Brilliant story illustrated with awesome graphics. The pictures add to the emotion of the story. This book is a great tool to be used for kids at home or in group/class work. The story sets the stage for great discussion around people, values, emotions, love and friendship. The audio sing along is a bonus. An entire class/session could be devoted to reading, discussing and singing about Klara The Cow. A fabulous find!
