A review from Mr. B. of the Grandview Branch:

The cows on the Diddle farm overhear a certain nursery rhyme, and are instantly divided on the important issue of whether or not a cow can jump over the moon.  “So Cindy Moo raised up a hoof / and said that it was true/ ‘If that cow could jump the moon / by golly, I can too.” 

There are some hilarious attempts before Cindy Moo finally realizes the best way to jump over the Moon.  Lori Mortensen’s rhyming text and Jeff Mack’s lush art revisit an old rhyme, to find a new tale of hope, determination, and giggles. This should be a successful read-aloud.
