From the Back Cover of Cows Can't Jump: Is it really true that cows can't jump, gorillas can't swim and sloths can't leap? Yes, but discover what these and other animals can do, as they swing, scamper and glide through Cows Can't Jump! In this humorous and inspirational adventure, animals focus on what they do best, comfortably aware they can't do everything, but proud of their own special skills. Vibrantly illustrated, Cows Can't Jump will help helping young readers learn diverse and dynamic words while absorbing a subtle yet powerful message that builds self-esteem and teaches respect and humility.
