Taking place in the countryside, Lauren is a Jersey cow (calf) who is determined to be a jumping cow when she grows up. She has to work hard and train if she is going to accomplish her dream. In the end, she doesn't just jump but discovers she can fly.
This story teaches children to believe in themselves and to try new things even if it has never been done before. It encourages the spirit of exploring yourself and to push beyond what you think is possible.

The first thing I would like to mention about this book is the illustrations. Lauren is shown to be so cute and the facial expression of her and Tim the fox are spot on. This is the story of Lauren the young cow who wants to learn how to jump. Even though she is told cows don’t jump she is determined she will. With the help of her new friend Tim she takes different steps to make it a reality. I really like the moral of the story and the surprise at the end (to the author very clever). I think this would be a great bedtime story for toddlers and young elementary children and I highly recommend it.
Lauren the cow lives with her mother in the countryside. When this jersey calf grows up, she is determined to become a jumping cow.
One thing I noticed right away is how vividly illustrated this book is. Younger children will be especially drawn to these beautiful illustrations. Older children who can understand the concept of the story will appreciate the lesson it tells, as it will help them to believe in themself.
Lauren wants to be a jumping cow and as they are not known for jumping the way horses are she starts out small and works her way up to bigger and higher things, a blade of grass, a stick and has finally worked her way up to trying to jump over a fence. Lauren, try as she may fails time and again though she has plenty of encouragement from the other animals on the farm.
Will she be able to jump the fence finally and become the jumping cow she is determined to become? Children will enjoy reading this with an adult and the encouragement they'll get out of it.
Highly recommended as a positive book for children.

I was given a complimentary copy of this book.
All opinions expressed are my own.
What a cute story! I have always loved cows and Lauren the cow is delightful. What a great book to demonstrate the power of positive thinking and dreaming big. This Nana really enjoyed this book. Thanks #NetGalley
This book is a cute little story about a little cow who has a goal and works very hard to achieve it. It has a very cute ending that ties it in to a popular children’s nursery rhyme - which was a pleasant surprise.
My kids both love this story and we have read it multiple times. How Lauren gets up and tries again and again is a good lesson for young kids. The illustrations are well done and soothing on the eyes which makes it a great bedtime story.
I would recommend this book to families of young and early elementary kids alike. Would also be a good “story time” book for small groups of kids.
I read this book with my five years old. He really enjoyed it and was able to read it as well with my help. Love the positive message. This book is perfect for younger audiences. The illustration is well done for kids
