Called a "read-aloud gem" by Quill & Quire, this picture book will delight children with its creative use of language and endearing illustrations.

In rhyming text that winds like a creek through a farmer's field, the book takes readers on a journey through one lovely day in Buttercup's life. Whether she is ruminating on the mud beneath her feet or on the moon and the stars in the blue-black sky, she draws us deep into her rich and wonderful world, reminding us all to be grateful for life's simple pleasures.

"A read-aloud gem...A clever, joyful, playful celebration of creative language, sound, rhyme, rhythm, and repetition."
– Quill & Quire
"There's much...for small fry to roll around their tongues as beautiful black-and-white Buttercup meanders through her lovely day."
– The Globe and Mail
"The iambic rhythm makes the selections easy to read and recite aloud, and the poems would be wonderful additions to storytimes about cows, farms or even during Valentine’s Day programs. Buttercup provides the answers to life’s eternal questions—she loves the simple things and shares this joy with readers."
– School Library Journal
"This is a rich, beautiful rendering of how cow life should be…A nice read aloud for storytimes focusing on the lives of farm animals."
