Can a cow jump? If not, who can? With each turn of the page another animal arrives ready to show you what he/she can do. Nice sized board book. Lots of fun, plenty of laughs, savvy moms and dads will act out the motions of the animals for their toddlers to mimic. Might run a little long for some listeners but you can always stop and come back to discover the rest of the fun.
We field tested this book on a 20 month old - he loved it- his mommy always acts out the animals with him- but it did run a little long.

From the Back Cover of Cows Can't Jump: Is it really true that cows can't jump, gorillas can't swim and sloths can't leap? Yes, but discover what these and other animals can do, as they swing, scamper and glide through Cows Can't Jump! In this humorous and inspirational adventure, animals focus on what they do best, comfortably aware they can't do everything, but proud of their own special skills.
