Children will enjoy the vivid watercolor illustrations and the puns that fill the pages of this down-home country book. Adults will love it too- it’s especially perfect for those country romantics who think that moving to the country and starting up a farm are the ultimate dream. If you know someone like this, Only Cows Allowed by Lynn Plourde would make a great house-warming gift! Illustrator, Rebecca Harrison Reed, captures the joy of a brand-new ‘real’ farmer and all the new animals that make up his farm. The first ones to take over the red barn are the cows, who decide they are the best thing that happened to country living and no other animal is needed- much less allowed.

 

As all the other animals prove they have a place on the farm and make themselves at home in the barn, the cows are not happy. When the cows begin to feel outnumbered, they skip out. Check out the book to find out where the cows make their new home. Or… check out this video by Author Lynn Plourde on her fabulous website, Lynn Plourde.com!

    I’ve wanted for a long time to have my own restaurant that serves only gluten-free foods. I have several of my own recipes. It’s just so hard to take my kids out to eat, and I want to make it easier for the growing population of GF people.

  3. That’s a great dream Arienne! I bet a lot of people would love to eat in a restaurant like that!

  4. I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills and also
    with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or

    Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working
    with? I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m
    having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for
    something unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but
    I had to ask!
