RI Author Feature: Bedtime Story: Why Not Call it Cow Juice by Steven Krasner

Synopsis: "A fun, whimsical 32-page picture book featuring plays on words for 7-12-year-olds, as well as bedtime reading for younger children.

Dad gets mixed up a lot, to the amusement and frustration of Mom and their three children, Amy, Jeffrey and Emily. You get apple juice from apples, right? So what do you get from cows? Cow juice, right? You have to squeeze the cow, too, don’t you? That’s what Dad thinks, anyway. Ears of corn? Heads of lettuce?

Eventually, Amy and Jeffrey turn the tables on their silly Dad.

Find the cows that are hidden on every double page!"

My Review: This is such a fun book to read, and while kids will be completely entertained by it, adults will find the true humor in it. We had so much fun reading this, I read it with Munchkin and my mom & nieces over Skype and the kids really had fun but mom and I were really entertained. Not only is the story entertaining and sure to get the giggles started but the added element of a hidden cow on each page spread keeps the kids engaged in the story.
My Rating: This is a fun book, it is meant for slightly older children who will maybe understand the different ways of saying things and the humor, but it is still a fun book for younger siblings to find the cows on each page.  We give it a rating of Three Paws and a Stump Wag.

I had picked up my copy of this book at a local event but you can order your own copy in print format from Amazon or see if your local bookshop can order a copy for you.


  1. The title cracked me up!! Ha! I love that you review children's books. I would like to start doing that at some point.

    1. I think this was more entertaining for adults than young kids but it was so funny with all the weird statements we use day to day.
