Edith Newlin Chase grew up on a farm in Indiana, and as a child wrote stories and poems in notebooks she made herself out of feedbag tags. Mrs. Chase was 79 years old when The New Baby Calf first appeared as a picture book. Throughout her long life, she has been happy to share experiences and her writing talent with children.From Publishers Weekly:
"Buttercup the cow had a new baby calf, a fine baby calf, a strong baby calf. Not strong like his mother, but strong for a calf, for this baby calf was so new." Plasticene-relief illustrations give this book an unusual three-dimensional look, as the baby calf grows up with lots of love and mother's milk. It's a sweet story, which should encourage those readers who despair of ever growing up themselves. Reid's observations of country life are on target, from the barnyard full of animals to the pink-cheeked farmer who tends them.
