Picture Books - Millie Waits for the Mail

Millie Waits for the Mail by Alexander Steffensmeier 2007.

What a hysterically funny book or at least I thought so and so does the wee one. Nothing like having a stealth like cow conducting covert operations against the mailman. Millie is a cow on a mission and that is to spend everyday scaring and chasing the mailman. The artwork depicting Millie’s hiding places are very humorous. Originally published in German the translation and appeal to an American audience makes a pretty good transition. An explanation about the differences between the appearances in postal dress and delivery methods may be needed for some little ones. This makes for a good pre-school and up read.

I am sure that within the collection of all mailmen, there are one or two that don't always get the mail through. Maybe, some grandpa's car is parked by the mail box. Then Mr. Mailman might have to work a little bit to get the mail into the box. Get him Millie!

This book reminds me of my favorite ad in which a cow is talking to a bull. The cow says in the ad, "Do you think that cows are pretty? Do you want to marry a cow?" Strangely, I do not remember the product that is being advertised.
