Baa! Oink! Moo! God Made the Animals

Rhonda Gowler Greene (Author) |  David Walker (Illustrator)

Baa! Oink! Moo! God Made the Animals, written by award-winning author Rhonda Gowler Greene and illustrated by David Walker, is set on a farm and follows a conversation between a mother and child as the child repeatedly asks “Mama, who made . . . ?”



A lovely, simple rhyming story for very young children in board book format. Each spread looks at a different animal on the farm. The story is a back and forth between a mother and child, with discussion about the various animals and the sounds they make. It’s well-written, and it makes for a great read-out-loud story.


SO cute! I just LOVED all the animals. The artwork is simple, but so lively and fun and bright. The typography and layout is beautifully done as well. The font choices are unique and fun, but readability is not compromised.


Wonderful. Big, bright title paired with lovely, colorful artwork. No complaints here.
