Mamma Moo Rides a Sled/Mamma Mu åker bobb
Mamma Moo fell off the slide and rolled quite a ways. When she came to a stop she looked like a big snow ball with horns. When Crow got there, Mamma Moo was laying there laughing. Crow crossed his wings and looked at her sternly.
“You hit all of the slalom ski poles,” he said. “Every one of them!”
“Moo, that was a lot of fun,” said Mamma Moo and laughed.
“You jumped when you hit the bump, Mamma Moo,” he said. “Funny that the sled didn’t break.”
“The most fun was falling off,” said Mamma Moo.
Mamma Moo stands and looks out of the barnyard window. On the hill outside, the farmer’s children go bobsledding. They swing and jump and thump, what speed they have! When the bob turns over, they fall off and roll around in the snow, it’s the most fun of it all. Oh, how they laugh! Mamma Moo also wants to go bobsledding. And roll off! The crow says no, of course, but then he still has to show Mamma Moo how to do it because she can neither run, putt nor steer herself.
Few double acts in children’s literature are so loved and enduring as Mamma Moo, a beautiful, friendly, inquisitive cow, and her argumentative, know-all companion Crow. Their deep friendship and vivid personalities have entertained children and adults for over three decades.
