Cindy Moo by Lori Mortensen. One night on the farm the cows in the barnyard overhear a little girl reciting “Hey Diddle Diddle, the Cat in the Fiddle, the Cow Jumped over the Moon!” After a lengthy discussion among the cows about how they couldn’t possibly jump over the moon, Cindy Moo decides she is going to prove them all wrong. The other cows make fun of Cindy. She tries several nights, and is about to give up until… it rains one night and Cindy notices the shadow of the moon in a puddle! Cindy goes out and jumps over the shadow of the moon in the puddle. (The other cows were secretly watching and said “A cow can really jump the moon, as long as she knows how!”) This is a great read aloud book for bedtime! See this book listed in our catalog
