Nadine can talk a blue streak, and one day she tells a real whopper: she isn't afraid of anything--no siree! Then her friends call her bluff, and Nadine must enter. . .The Deep. Dark. Woods. Only the woods aren't so scary after all, until the sun sets, that is, and Nadine can't find her friends. What is this boastful bovine to do? Run around in blind terror? Plummet off a cliff? Crash into a stream? Check, check, and check. But is all lost? Doubtful. After all, she is cow, hear her MOOOOOOOOO!

    I was really enjoying this rhyming prose about a cow who ends up brave, but the last two pages ruined it for me. I can't fathom why the message at the end is what it is - I have an issue with it, to the point that I wouldn't feel comfortable putting it in my classroom.

    Funny story. Cow brags she is not scared of anything, and to prove it, she has to take her friends into the woods. She is scared, but then starts to enjoy it. Then night falls and she gets lost and is afraid. She runs to escape, and finds her friends again. They are impressed. She thinks to tell them she was scared, but then doesn't. And no one will know...until nightfall when the friends promised others she would take them on a tour of the woods.

    1) This book was about an overly confident cow named Nadine. Nadine told her friends in the barn that she wasn't afraid of anything, not even the dark and scary forest. She offered to take them into the forest and they accepted. Before the forest got dark, Nadine was loving it. She was exploring everything and feeling like the bravest cow ever. But, when it got dark, Nadine's friends had left her, and she was afraid and all alone in the forest. Nadine realized that she is afraid of somethings.

Nadine finds her friends, who were also afraid and lost in the woods, and they praise her for being so brave. Nadine doesn't tell them that she actually got scared and was running away when she bumped into her friends. They make it back safely to the barn, and the next day throw a huge celebration for Nadine, and also offer "forest at night" tours to the rest of the barnyard, led by Nadine. Nadine still doesn't say she's afraid. 2) An activity for this book would be first discussing why it is okay to feel afraid of some things, and then have each student draw a picture of something they are afraid of. At the end when everyone has made their drawings, I would let all the kids yell "I am cow, hear me moo!" at their drawings and discuss why it's good to be brave but also important to be safe even when you feel like you aren't afraid of anything, because, just like Nadine, we can't always be brave. 3)Esbaum, J., & Gordon, G.

When her friends took her up on it and asked her to lead them into the woods, Nadine had to swallow hard and lead them in. Once in the woods though, to Nadine's surprise, she loved exploring! As it got dark and the cows headed for home, Nadine found a hut split off from her friends. As she explored the hut, she found bones of an animal. She ran through the forest, scared for her life and ran so hard and fast, she ran off a cliff and landed in a pond below. As she surfaced and recovered from her flight, her friends rushed to her, thankful that she had found them and saved them from being lost. They all returned home and Nadine was a hero, her friends told one and all that she was, in fact, fearless. Nadine felt bad, because she had been afraid, but she let the celebration continue, knowing that one day, the others would probably learn that she wasn't as brave as the stories say, but celebrating was just fine for now! This was a cute little story and reminds the reader that bravery is not always what your willing to do, but sometimes, it's what we do on accident that makes us feel and seem brave to others. It left me wondering if Nadine would ever go back into the woods to prove bravery again, and if the other cows would ever figure out her fib. Great story!

    I thought this was cute! Nadine the cow is a bit of a braggart. She is called out on it and manages to overcome her fear and be brave...for a little while. I thought the rhyme scheme was clever. I read it to my storytimers and they all laughed and liked it, especially when Nadine yells the title of the book out from the top of a tree.

I don't think it's necessarily telling kids that lying is the way to go. I think the illustrations are attempting to show that lying will catch up with you. I thought it worked well and I thought it was cute. But, to each their own.

    Who doesn't love a funny cow book? Looking at this as a mentor text for writing. Beginning spread takes us right int the dilemma...Nadine's not afraid on anything, or...is she? Her bluff is called and in she goes to the woods. Fun rhyme helps the tale bounce along as her cow friend are in tow and in awe unit...she gets lost and fears overcome her. All ends well as Nadine has a new career as sunset tour guide.

    Nadine convinces her barn mates Starla and Annette that she is afraid of nothing. After convincing Nadine to journey into the woods to prove it, Nadine gets separated from Starla and Annette, when she decides to explore a cave by herself. Once the three are reunited Nadine is considered a hero, but only she knows the truth of the matter, and she's not telling what really happened.

    After bragging that she is extremely courageous, Nadine and her fellow bovine beauties wander into the woods. Only then does Nadine realise how spooked she is about all this that hoot and bump in the shadows. Nadine and her friends are separated, forcing them to scramble in the dead of night. Told in a cute rhyming fashion, the story held Neo's attention throughout. I am Neo, see me read!

    I think this would be a good book to compare to the Cow Who Climbed a Tree. I read this with my son (he's 7) and he didn't laugh as much as I did. It's very funny.

    Esbaum's syllable and rhyme scheme has a really good beat, and the story was fun if predictable. I am a little concerned about whether Nadine (the bovine protagonist) learned as much from her day in the woods as she perhaps should have—but then again, not all life lessons are learned overnight, and perhaps the small progress Nadine made is more indicative of real life personal development than typical storybook moralizing would have been? I fear, however, that Nadine's small progress will not be Esbaum's syllable and rhyme scheme has a really good beat, and the story was fun if predictable.

I fear, however, that Nadine's small progress will not be enough: The final pages see her literally capitalizing off of her supposed "bravery," and capital's corrupting influence may lead her to forestall individual growth in favor of profit's siren song. Regardless of Nadine's future, I hope the children reading Esbaum's book are able to glean meaningful life lessons (intended by Esbaum or otherwise), and that for these children the legitimate pursuit of esteem--both of self and by others--is not twisted by dishonesty into glorification. All misgivings aside, what leads me to give this book 4 stars instead of 3 is Gus Gordon's artwork. On the surface it seems unremarkable for the genre, but a closer examination reveals fascinating textures and idiosyncrasies that somehow make the pages feel more real and more surreal at the same time. One gray boulder's surface was imagined as newsprint, complete with text. But Johnson isn't just about flair--he's sincere when it counts. The shear exuberance of the book's centerfold (also the scene on the cover) almost single-handedly makes the book worth the read. [It's also an easy way to pad your numbers if you're behind on your Goodreads goal of books to read in 2015, and if you write a thoughtful review you'll feel less guilty about it]

    Nadine, the cow, is not afraid of anything (or so she says). When Nadine tells her friends, Starla and Annette, she is not afraid of the deep dark woods, they are not convinced. Nadine gathers all of her braver and leads the group in the woods where they discover the wonders found there, including eggs, blackberries, pinecones, paw prints, nests, and even a cave. While Nadine explores, her friends decide to make their way home, even though it is dark. Although Nadine gets scared while trying to Nadine, the cow, is not afraid of anything (or so she says).

While Nadine explores, her friends decide to make their way home, even though it is dark. Although Nadine gets scared while trying to find her way home, the friends are reunited when Nadine takes a flying leap while trying to flee the "something [that] tickled her rump!" Readers who are very observant will themselves be "tickled" when they see what tickles and scares Nadine. Nadine ends up being considered a hero (even though she was scared, "nobody knew it"). Her friends start a business selling tickets for sunset tours of the woods lead by the "Brave Nadine". Jill Esbaum's text provides a nice range of vocabulary words not usually found in children's books. Some of these words includ the following: curdled, gulped, prickled, jiff, hollered, glancing, bellowed, cranny, and many others. I'm sure young readers will question the meaning of these words, which is great! I would be willing to bet after hearing this story, children will begin using some of these words in their daily communication. Gordon's illustrations are great throughout the book. I loved going through trying to figure out how each spread was created. The illustrations were created using watercolors, pencils, crayons, and collage. The materials used in the collage pieces include old ledger pages, photographs, wallpaper, textured paper, and newspaper.

However, her lie comes back to bite her on the tail when her friends call her bluff and make her entire the The Deep. Dark. Woods. As the sun sets and Nadine gets lost, she finds that all hr boasting is for naught as she runs in terror, plummets off a cliff, and crashes into a stream. She also finds that although it was scary, it wasn't quite as bad as she thought it was. Oh, this book was so good...until I got to the end. The illustrations were adorable, the rhymes quick and fun, and the storyline about a cow whose lies catch up with her was giggle worthy. Then, when Nadine returns to the farm...she keeps lying! Instead of fessing up, owning her lie, and telling the other animals that she had been scared but was glad her friends were there or some other nice "message", what we get instead is Nadine continuing on with the lie. Did she learn nothing? What are children supposed to learn from this? Don't get me wrong, I dislike didactic stories as much as anyone, but picture books, for the most part, are meant to teach things to children even if the message is something as simple as sharing. Or as big as love. Perhaps the lesson lies in overcoming our fears or be careful what you boast. Perhaps there is no lesson at all, just an excursion into the woods with a few cows. I don't think kids will mind, but I am sure some parents would, which is why I write these reviews in the first place.

This is a highly amusing, character driven story, written in rhyme, and which examines the consequences of boasting too much about your own abilities. Nadine tells her friends, Starla and Annette, that she fears nothing at all, not even lightning, but when she finds herself in the awkward position of having to prove her bravery by actually taking her friends on an intrepid expedition through the wild woods, she becomes ever so slightly scared. Nadine’s confidence is knocked even further when they become lost and she is then separated from her friends. She spends all night on her own in the woods, where she hears strange rustlings and other noises that frighten her so much it almost makes her milk curdle. This is an adorable picture book for children, which enables them to identify with the character of Nadine as she learns about the consequences of being too much of a show off. Gus Gordon’s cow illustrations are ‘udderly’ hilarious and so delightfully expressive. Drawn in a loose, sketchy style, Nadine’s personality and emotions can be easily understood by the reader at each stage of her scary adventure. For children aged four to eight year-old.

With loads of energy for getting back safe and sound Nadine takes off. And finds her lost cow friends in the process. No other animals suspect that Nadine was ever scared…but they might when the cow friends start up their next scheme–tours of the woods at night, guided by Nadine. This is a fun book. I like how Nadine shows similar emotions to many kids I know (the whole I’m not scared…but really they are once they stop and think about it emotions). Plus there are fun elements to the illustrations. (I love seeing Nadine and her other cow friends climbing trees or having the “hay” cake sit on a crate with “books” labeled on the side. Just fun details that make me like the book all the more.) The fact that Nadine really was scared and the others didn’t really suspect might go over some kids’ heads. But those that get it will think it funny that this clever bovine was able to fool all the rest of the farm.

Even though all three cows are lost, they eventually/magically exit the forest (I wish there was a bit more explanation for their escape). This would make an excellent book for kids looking to get slightly scared, but not frightened.

    Nadine is a brave cow, but when a day spent exploring the wonder of the woods quickly fades to night, her bravery is put to the test. The mixed media artwork was the big appeal for me. The story is okay; there's some nice vocabulary used to describe Nadine's nature experience. The artwork, though, incorporates found pieces of paper and different mediums to give the reader a richly textured visual treat. PreK-2.

    Madam read this to me, and I'm not sure if it was because I was getting this second-hand, so I will check this myself and maybe come back to this review, but I think the cow was lying to her friends at the end? Not cool. When I checked with Madam on her take on this, she didn't seem to get why this made me upset. Oy. Not a cool message to put in a picture book, even if it's saying that you need to be brave or that she was telling a little why lie or deceiving indirectly or by omission.

    "Nadine was a truly remarkable cow. There was nothing she feared -- so she claimed, anyhow." But when the other cows call her bluff, Nadine realizes that she does have some bravery within her. But as she explores with her new-found courage, she discovers it's easier to be brave when her friends are with her. Such a wonderful rhyming cadence, it will be a joy to read this one out loud. The illustrations are a lot of fun, too.

    I realize that Nadine suffered from false-pride, but I like her spunk! I like how she faces her fears, (sort of) and comes out better for it at the end. I think even young readers will see right away that what she was most afraid of in the woods was her own tail, and will enjoy the humor of Nadine’s misguided adventures. I wonder if she will ever admit to her fears, or if she will learn to overcome them by returning to the woods? http://julianaleewriter.com/2014/06/2...

    The idea is so cute, that a cow who is actually scared of many things turns out to be "brave" by making it through an experience just fine. But why, oh, WHY did she have to lie to her friends at the end? Why couldn't they find out she wasn't brave but love her anyway? Or have another reason she's so amazing, like facing fears? Or being adventurous? The end really bugged me, and otherwise the story was cute!
