Description

 

A fresh new look for the first picture book to feature Barbara Reid’s signature Plasticine artwork!

First published in 1984, this heartwarming story about a new baby calf’s first seasons, and the mother cow that loves him through all of his first steps, is a true Canadian classic. It has the added distinction of being the first book to feature the award-winning artwork style of Barbara Reid!

Now, with a fresh new cover, Edith Newlin Chase’s beautiful poem, can be introduced to a new generation of mothers and babies, celebrating the simple, unconditional nature of parental love.

 

About the Authors

Edith Newlin Chase

EDITH NEWLIN CHASE was born in 1905 and raised as a Quaker on an Indiana farm, where she milked cows every day. She wrote The New Baby Calf as a poem in the late ‘30s, and said: “It came to me clearly and rapidly as I worked at housekeeping, and if I remember right, it required no revision.” It was first published in a book for pre-school children in 1945, where, many years later, it was discovered by Scholastic’s then director of publishing. Ms. Chase passed away in 2004.

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).
