A Cow With a Difference!

Mary Elizabeth the Spotless Cow is a girl with a difference.  In her new pasture live a lot of cows–all with spots.  Enter Mary Elizabeth, and the cow conundrum begins!

Mary Elizabeth The Spotless CowA book with a heart, Mary Elizabeth the Spotless Cow by Salvatore Barbara tells the age-old but important tale of discrimination.  But this time it can be found among the bovine set.

Author Sal Barbera

Published by Sweetles Press, Mary Elizabeth is a charming story of life amidst the clover, a clever but spotless cow, and a herd of spotted cows who need a paradigm shift.

Mary Elizabeth accomplishes her life lesson with adorable illustrations by Salvatore Barbera.  The cows’ personalities emerge as one reads the book, thanks in large part to Mr. Barbera’s efforts.

A nice addition to anyone’s holiday gift list, Mary Elizabeth the Spotless Cow could fill the bill.  In fact, if you buy the book through Sweetles Press,  the cost for the hardcover is greatly reduced.  In addition, 50 % of net proceeds benefit the Phoenix Children’s Hospital Child Life Program.
