Book Review-A Cow Needs A Tail For More Than One Summer : Life Lessons From Mom

An engaging collection of entertaining stories that’s sure to immediately capture the hearts of women and men everywhere, A Cow Needs A Tail For More Than One Summer reaches into the hills of Southern vernacular to teach basic lessons while utilizing the most bewildering sayings to prove each point and it’s all done in the most hysterical manner imaginable.

Yeah, you may say, but is it really funny? Well, how could readers not laugh out loud when Mom used sayings such as, “If I tell you a hen dips snuff, you’d better look under the wing,” to teach me to believe every word she said or “I’ve already fallen out of that tree you’re trying to climb,” to prove she already knew where I was going, because she had been there once herself.

Just dive into the first few pages, and brace yourself. Not only will you be smiling, you’ll find yourself outright laughing and begging for more!

A Cow Needs A Tail For More Than One Summer: Life Lessons From Mom” is an amazing read! It’s a tale of great parenting, a strong willed child, and principles that stand the test of time. The main character Lolita, now a mother herself, takes you on a journey as she learns life lessons…many of them the hard way.

Using Southern sayings from a time gone by, Lolita’s mother attempts to instill in her children values and principles that can’t be bought, only taught by a wise soul.

The compilation of ten short stories is a wonderful tribute to parents who plant daily seeds of wisdom in their children, hoping it sprouts a well rounded, kind person.

Lolita was able to pass down these teachings to her own children. Both are now adults having a positive impact on society, ultimately proving the Bible verse, “If you train a child in the way he should go, when he is old he will not depart . . .(Proverbs 22:6 King James Version KJV)
