“Bash and the Chocolate Milk Cows” by Burton W. Cole
I’ve read the first two books in the Bash book series and have fallen totally in love with these books. I was so excited to have the opportunity to read the third book. I can say this, it didn’t disappoint my expectations.
It’s Spring break and Beamer is visiting his cousin Bash again on the farm. Problem is, Spring break falls around April 1st. If you’ve read any of the other Bash books you’d know that Bash seems to find trouble, manly from his crazy ideas. On top of April Fool’s day, there is a robber on the loose and Beamer is worried he will run into him. From painted goats to cows with chocolate milk and Bashes idea of looking for the bad guy, poor Beamer is dragged into his cousin’s crazy world. Beamer also learns more about what it means to be baptized and who Jesus was and what He did here on Earth.
This was another crazy adventure book. Let’s just say I will never look at chocolate milk the same way again, nor do I think Bash and Beamer will either. I loved that we see Beamer who doesn’t really understand the “Farmin’ and Fishin'” (Bible) book is all about, learn more each day about what God’s meaning is.
Even though they say the books are geared towards kids ages 8-12 I still really enjoy them. My 9 year old really loves these books too. She hasn’t read book 3 yet but I know I’ll hear her laughing out loud when she reads it. Of course I recommend this book, it’s fun, clean, has good lessons and helps expand your imagination.
