Deskripsi

This uplifting New York Times bestseller reminds us that if we're open to new experiences, life is full of surprises.

Fans of Newbery Medal winner Sharon Creech's Love That Dog and Hate That Cat will love her newest tween novel, Moo. Following one family's momentous move from the city to rural Maine, an unexpected bond develops between twelve-year-old Reena and one very ornery cow.

When Reena, her little brother, Luke, and their parents first move to Maine, Reena doesn't know what to expect. She's ready for beaches, blueberries, and all the lobster she can eat. Instead, her parents "volunteer" Reena and Luke to work for an eccentric neighbor named Mrs. Falala, who has a pig named Paulie, a cat named China, a snake named Edna-and that stubborn cow, Zora.

This heartwarming story, told in a blend of poetry and prose, reveals the bonds that emerge when we let others into our lives.

    One her best book yet.

    A delightful novel-in-verse about two city kids moving to Maine, expectations, judging others too quickly, and appreciating people for their unique contributions. Told in "Creechingly sweet" style, of course!

    MOO is a great tale, with a lot of fun poetry, of a family's move from the city to rural Maine.Animal and friendships abound around a cantankerous old woman who they come to care for.What I wish was not in the book: 1. unquestioning cruelty of stretching the heifers necks to make them presentable to human judges2. the father's unthinking comment about eating his kids - when the kids see Goya's SATURN DEVOURING HIS CHILDREN, they will be horrified to remember his words

    Can a gruff old woman and an ornery cow help the new kids in a new town? Mrs. Falala and Zora just might, if Reena and Luke give them a chance. In verse-like chapters with lots of widely spaced lettering, Newbery winner Sharon Creech immerses readers in the sights, sounds and especially the smells of a coastal Maine town and its cast of eccentric characters: two-legged, four-legged and winged. Though short, this book packs in many themes, including friendship, showmanship, work ethics, responsibility and privacy.

    Fans of Newbery Medal winner Sharon Creech’s Love That Dog and Hate That Cat will love her newest tween novel, Moo. This uplifting tale reminds us that if we’re open to new experiences, life is full of surprises. Following one family’s momentous move from the city to rural Maine, an unexpected bond develops between twelve-year-old Reena and one very ornery cow.

    When Reena, her little brother, Luke, and their parents first move to Maine, Reena doesn’t know what to expect. She’s ready for beaches, blueberries, and all the lobster she can eat.

    This heartwarming story, told in a blend of poetry and prose, reveals the bonds that emerge when we let others into our lives.

    I really enjoyed reading this book with my son. The characters were written in a way that I felt that I knew them, they were my neighbors, the family next door. Being from Maine and not have been "home" in years, this book makes me want to go back to Maine and visit small farms and coastal towns. Drive the back roads and look for the livestock grazing in pastures along the sides of the road. Maybe a goal for a road trip very soon.

    MOO is a tale about an ornery cow. Well, not really. It’s more about how we perceive people, how we treat those we do not know much about. It is a story of growth, love, kindness, and more. Author, Sharon Creech, writes a character who puts up such a strong emotional barrier, but not strong enough for the family that decides to show the little old woman a little kindness. And they do not give up on her. Written in such a poetic way, MOO will stick with you long after you place it back on the shelf.
