Little Cow looks around her and she admires all the colors she sees. The world is full of wonderful colors, and yet she is only black and white. If only she could be "orange or red, purple, pink, or blue instead."

Little Cow starts to imagine that there are colors all over her until she sees so many that there are "too many colors. Make it stop." In a moment all the colors are gone. Or almost all.

This delightful finger puppet book will make little readers laugh out loud. Not only will they enjoy the clever little rhyming story, but they will also take pleasure in being able to make the cow move as the story is read to them. In addition to being entertaining, the story will help little children to learn their colors and their numbers.
