Description

A classic Canadian picture book is now a bright, sturdy board book!

"Buttercup the cow had a new baby calf, a fine baby calf, a strong baby calf..." She licks him, feeds him, and encourages him until he learns to walk and run and play. A bestseller since it was first published in 1984, this simple, gentle story of mother love is now in board book form, perfect for the moms who read it growing up to share with their own new little babies.

The New Baby Calf was Barbara Reid's first book in her now trademark Plasticine style. Published to great acclaim, it has never been out of print.

Praise for The New Baby Calf:

"The artwork seems so real and the texture so detailed... Heartwarming facial and physical expressions of cow, calf and farmer emanate from every page." -The Toronto Star
