    Just finished reading The Cow in Patrick O’Shanahan’s Kitchen to my 4 year old. When I asked him what he thought of the story, he said with a smile: “It was good!” Followed by: “Are the chickens Patrick’s best friends?” then: “Can we have french toast for breakfast tomorrow when we wake up?”

    I certainly enjoyed reading this book to my son. I especially liked the questions and dialogue that followed. I could tell from the look on his face that he was really interested in why there was a cow in Patrick’s kitchen.

    The quality of the book is also worth noting – from the paper to the vibrant colors.
