Cindy Moo
by Lori Mortensen

Hey, Diddle Diddle, the cat and the fiddle
The cow jumped over the moon.
The little dog laughed to see such a sport
And the dish ran away with the spoon.

The Diddle cows all listened
As the nursery rhyme was read.
Could a cow really jump the moon?
They wondered from their beds.

But Cindy Moo did more than wonder.
She declared her plan out loud.
"If that cow could jump the moon
I can do it, too," she vowed.

The other cows doubted it could be done, but Cindy started planning, then practicing, then failing, then trying again! Would she ever get it right?

Lori Mortensen's funny rhyming text combined with Jeff Mack's precious illustrations in Cindy Moo make this a story book that kids ask for over and over again. We suggest that you pair it with Sixteen Cows, another terrific story with cows, rhyming text, a problem, and a love story!
