Bash and the Chocolate Milk Cows
by Burton Cole
During spring break, ‘city kid’ Beamer heads to the country to stay with family and take part in the shenanigans of his cousin Bash just in time for April Fool’s Day. This year, Bash is going beyond shaving cream in the bedroom slippers and has come up with a plan to make the cows on the farm give chocolate milk. There’s also a robber on the loose, tadpoles changing into frogs, a painted goat, and a capsized rain barrel kayak to keep the boys busy on the farm.
My nine-year-old daughter loves pranks and good jokes, and she loved this book, declaring it “super funny.” I caught her reading it aloud at bedtime complete with a southern accent to add to the book’s country charm.
The book is quick moving and shows the kind of crazy, creative fun kids can get into when playing outdoors with good friends. In the middle of all of their antics, Beamer and his friends also learn about salvation, baptism, and how to trust God rather than giving into fear. I was sent this book to review and didn’t even realize it was part of a series. Given how much my daughter loved this book, I might need to check out the other Bash books for her!
