‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

Black Skin, White Cow
by Pablo Bernasconi
Age Range: Under_5
One morning a very proud cow decides that she wants to be different from the rest of the herd on the farm. She doesn’t want to be a black and white cow anymore and is determined to get rid of her spots. She sets about trying to alter her colour, but this only causes further confusion amongst the other animals. A comedy of mistaken identity ensues until she finally realises the importance of being happy with the way you are.
This is a lovely simple tale by Argentinean writer and illustrator Pablo Bernasconi based on the concept of learning to be content with who you are. The collage-inspired witty illustrations provide a poignant lesson in just being yourself.
