My Review:

Mary Elizabeth the Spotless Cow was introduced to me about a month ago, and I have read this book to my children countless times since! It is adorable, both in the story and illustrations! Realizing that one is different than others is not always easy but learning ways to adapt and be friends with those that are different from us are two HUGE themes within this delightful children's book. I have truly enjoyed having it a part of our children's library! 

I have not read other books from this author but I definitely plan on checking out more from him this year!

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
