Annabelle the cow led a comfortable life. She had a pasture with green grass, she had a shady tree for sunny days, and a barn for rainy days. There was a fence that kept her safe. She saw Farmer Ben and a tractor chugging along on the other side of the fence. She watched Farmer Ben plowing the ground and planting seeds, and he told Annabelle to stay out of his vegetable garden as it was not meant for cows. Annabelle went and checked the garden every day and saw the beans, lettuce, corn, squash, and tomatoes growing. She was hungry looking at this and wondered why a vegetable garden could not be for cows. Annabelle sailed over the fence and tasted every vegetable in the garden. What happened when Farmer Ben found out his vegetables had been eaten? Would Annabelle be honest and tell him she had feasted on all his vegetables?

A Vegetable Garden Is Not For Cows by Anita Stafford is an adorable story that teaches children about honesty. Tiffany Stafford breathes life into the story with her delightful illustrations and the picture of Annabelle and her character sketch by the author gives her a unique personality and will keep her alive in the minds of young readers. It is a good book for parents and tutors to read out loud to kids to make them understand the importance of being honest in an engaging and interesting way. Storybooks like this are good for children to learn good morals, values, concepts, and messages without getting bored.
