" Good for a science lesson on animals and space. Also, for lit. it would be a good way to introduce space vocabulary. " said.

" I loved how the central dilemma was solved. Cute story; my students enjoyed it. " said.

" a stuborn cow daydreams about walking on the moon and learns its not what she really wants " said.

" One word: COWSMONAUT! Mark Teague, illustrator of the How Do Dinosaurs... and LaRue series is the illustrator for this story, so the pictures are great! The story is also really interesting and funny.You get to see a few cool historical landmarks, and I think it's a great read-aloud choice! " said.

"Martha is sick of being a cow and wants to find greener pastures. She goes on strike: if Farmer Rob does not take her to the moon, he can have no milk. Rob knows that he cannot take her to the moon (realistically) so he takes her everywhere else around the country: Crater Lake, NYC, etc. Martha soon escapes and tries to make her own way to the moon. Farmer Rob helps his cow Martha meet her space adventure in the science mooo-suem. This is a funny read aloud book for Kindergarten and First grade students. " said.

"I'd call this a precursor to Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type, but without the agenda of those bovine. In No Moon, No Milk!, Martha the cow is tired of her boring existence and asks her farmer Rob to help her reach the moon; her great-great-grandmother jumped over it, after all. The moon is obviously impossible, but Rob takes Martha on vacation all over the country. Still, his cow is determined. No moon, no milk.

I remember this one from childhood. It's just as priceless now. Both Rob and Martha are likable. The narrative structure is clear, lyrical, but wacky enough to keep kids laughing. The illustrations are perfect snapshots, and the ending is exhilarating.

I would recommend this delightful fantasy story for grades 1-3 with a writing extension on what students want in exchange for learning. It would be perfect for the beginning of the year when talking about the expectations you, the teacher, have for students. What do the students need from you?
" said.

" In this book a farmer tells the cow, "But I never promised you the moon!" . that is funny. " said.
