“I will love you till the yaks come back from a jaunt downtown for a grassy snack in a fire truck or a Cadillac.” –I’ll Love You Till the Cows Come Home
I’ll Love You Till the Cows Come Home
by Kathryn Cristaldi
AR Test, Picture Book
I’ll Love You Till the Cows Come Home uses cows and other animals to show that love has no bounds. However, the cows are not normal farm animals. Instead, these amazing cows take a “trip to Mars through skies unknown in a rocket ship made of glass and stone.” The story includes yaks, sheep, frogs, and other animals. Each refrain reminds readers that, “I’ll love you until . . .” and then refers to the animal in the picture.
Using hyperbole and humor, I’ll Love You Till the Cows Come Home wonderfully captures the idea that love knows no boundaries. Beautiful illustrations in muted natural colors depict whimsical animals. Young readers will enjoy looking at all of the pictures’ details. For example, one page shows four frogs “riding on big-wheeled bikes going superfast in a circus of sea horses, shrimp, and bass.” The dancing sea horses and shrimp in top hats will leave readers giggling. Even though the illustrations are silly, readers will easily understand the book’s message: love never ends.
Even though I’ll Love You Till the Cows Come Home is a picture book, it will resonate with readers of all ages. If you’re at a loss for words and don’t know how to express your love, then this picture book would make the perfect gift. After all, what better way to express your love than to say, “I’ll love you till the ants march in wearing tiny hats and tiny ant grins and birthday cake crumbs on their tiny ant chins. I will love you till the ants march in.”
