Review: Cow, a soft plastic toy, does not have much of a clue while shopping at the supermarket for mom. Cow mistakes carrots for green beans and purchases limes for mom to bake an apple pie. Cow even asks the frozen fish for directions to the mayonnaise aisle. Not to worry though, Cow’s family members are equally oblivious and are perfectly content with the bag of groceries that Cow brings home. Just as a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, adults can use this zany book to introduce young children to some important economics concepts, including goods, consumers, and markets.
