"Sharon Creech (author of Walk Two Moons, and Ruby Holler, and Love That Dog among other titles) has a new book that is just out. It is called Moo, and I love it! Moo is a book about a family that moves from the big city to a small beach town in Maine. Reena and her brother Luke have been volunteered by their parents to help an old woman in the community. Mrs. Falala lives on an old farm and has several pets, including an ornery Belted Galloway. Belted Galloways are a specific breed of cow that is black in the front and rear ends, and white in the middle. This specific cow's name is Zora. Zora seems mean at first, but as the children get to know her and work with her she gets nicer. This is a book about learning about animals and people. It's about being helpful and being adventurous.Children will enjoy this book as they bond with the children, Mrs. Falala, and her animals."
