The Cow in Patrick O’Shanahan’s Kitchen: Review

Posted on Updated on


Honestly, I enjoyed this book. It was cute, short, and presented a clear message to young readers.

The story is nice, it’s short and simple but presents a very clear message – eat natural foods. This book does a nice job of showing kids where there food comes from and what makes certain foods (does it come from the chicken, cow, or tree). Everything is presented in a way to make the reader understand where the food they eat comes from, without being too life-scarring for small children (i.e. not really talking about where meat comes from until the very last page).

The illustrations weren’t that great. They were cute but seemed a little bit rough around the edges. I would have liked to have seen smoother lines and prettier pictures, but the illustrations in the book still manage to convey the point.

Bottom Line: I would give this book 8/10 stars. The story was short but presented a strong message, although the illustrations were a little rough. I would definitely read this book to a child especially if they were curious about where there food came from.

I received this book for review purposes via NetGalley.
