Description

"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 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.

The New Baby Calf

Beginning with his birth in early spring and moving through to late fall, Barbara Reid’s colourful plasticine illustrations follow the growth of Buttercup, the cow’s new calf. This story is simple and clear, warm and gentle. Originally published in hardcover and big-book format in 1984 by North Winds Press (Our Choice 1985/1986).
