From New York Times bestseller Rory Feek, one half of the singing duo Joey+Rory, comes The Cow Said Neigh!, a fun and humorous tale of farm animals who wish they were like the other animals . . . which leads to a farm-full of confusion! This delightful book will be a family favorite for years to come.
The Cow Said Neigh! is the story of some peculiar farm animals who wish they were like other animals on the farm. The cow wants to run free like a horse, the sheep wants a snout like a pig, the dog wants to be inside like the cat. Soon the entire farm is in chaos! With silly farm animal sounds, clever rhymes, and adorable art, The Cow Said Neigh! will have kids of all ages laughing out loud as they celebrate the unique strengths in each of us.
Rory Feek on his own blog speaks of how the book came about: "A couple years ago when the folks at HarperCollins approached me about writing a children's book, I jumped at the chance. First off, it's something I've always wanted to do, but never really thought I'd get the opportunity. And also, because children's books and stories are such a big part of my life now... and Indiana's. She loves 'reading' her books to me too. Although she's mostly just making up words and sounds as she giggles and turns the pages, I know it won't be long before she's actually really reading to me, and I can't wait."
"The idea for my children's book THE COW SAID NEIGH! came from our farm of course, but also from the thought, "what if the cow on the farm wanted to be like the horse?" And then from there, "and the horse wanted to be like the duck?" and on and on. It was so much fun to write, because I had no idea where these funny animals were taking me. In time, them all wanting to be something else, led them (and me) into the farmhouse and all the way to the farmer asleep in his chair. And after that, back to the barn with all the animals and a really sweet ending."
