"The Cow Said Neigh!" by Rory Feek

This full-color, hardcover children's book is downright adorable.  It is about farm animals who want to be like other farm animals.  Hence, they say the sounds of the other animals.  There is no judgement about how the animals choose to act or what noises they decide to make.  It is not a hallmark special in that sense.  Rather, it is up to the reader or child's reader to explain and talk with the child.  This can be a fun and silly book that teaches kids what sounds animals make.  It can also be a more existential book that teaches kids what envy looks like and how everyone is unique in their own way.  It can really go either way, and that's up to the reader.
