Product Details

Praise

The animal characters from Bunting’s The Wedding (Charlesbridge, 2003) celebrate a new arrival in this rhyming picture book. When friends of Ms. Brindle Cow and Mr. Bull learn that the pair is expecting a baby, they set off to share in the joyous occasion. Each one brings a gift for the infant along with well wishes for the parents-to-be. The predictably happy ending has a slight twist as the couple welcomes twins. Children will enjoy the rhyming couplets: “The moon and stars lit up the sky./Fireflies came dancing by./They kept repeating to each other,/’Brindle’s going to be a mother!'” Love’s illustrations, done in transparent inks on Arches watercolor paper, are a charming complement to the gently plotted story. Sharp-eyed readers will notice touches of humor, including a couple of the creatures reading books that connect to their particular species. While not an essential purchase, libraries that own the earlier title will want to consider this one.
