Read Prudence the Part-Time Cow Online Free - Prudence looks like a full-time cow she wanders through pastures, she swats flies, and she lines up for supper. But Prudence is a part-time cow she is also a scientist, an architect, and an inventor, studying and building and dreaming and creating. To the other cows in the herd, Prudence is a bit too part-time. She's just too different to be part of the herd. At first Prudence tries to fit in, suppressing all her scientific smarts and imaginative inventing. But in a moment of inspiration Cow Power! Prudence realizes how to show the others that she can be a part-time cow and a full-time member of the herd. Funny and sweet, this is a story for anyone who's ever felt a bit different."

More like 3.5. The illustrations are bright and colorful and Prudence is just ADORABLE. But how quickly her herd turned on her (towards the positive) was too... easy. For me at least.

When a picture book makes me laugh out loud, I know it will be a first purchase for my libraries. This adorable book has a cow with higher than normal interest in science and engineering who does not feel she is accepted by the herd. (She actually is disliked by them at first.) She overcomes her...

Liked the beginning but found the end rather a let-down strangely enough.

Digital illustrations complement a humorous story about a cow who wants to be much more than that. Prudence is quite curious, and fancies herself as a scientist and an engineer, and she's always reading something, leading the other cows to make fun of how differently she behaves and seems to thin...

The herd a...

Lovely little story about being yourself. It reminded me somewhat of Tacky the Penguin. Prudence is a part-time cow who spends the rest of her time creating, imagining, thinking, and engineering. She doesn't quite fit in with the rest of the cows on the farm. But Prudence realizes that trying to...

I won this book in a drawing and am SO delighted with it! Prudence is definitely not your ordinary cow. She's got intelligence, creativity, and great problem-solving skills. Just the kinds of thinking I want to nurture in my granddaughters (ages 2, 4, and 6), who will be receiving the book as a C...
