Millie the cow is awake early in the morning but waits until she hears the other animals making noise before she joins them in play.
Janet Pedersen is a former designer of children's books who now writes and illustrates her own, including the first book about lovable Millie, MILLIE IN THE MEADOW. Of this book she says, "I was inspired to write this story while I was watching my son try to contain his excitement. Waiting for a treat, a holiday, a play date, or even for his groggy mom and dad to finally wake up can be very difficult to do! That burst of energy and sheer delight- when the moment finally arrives - is what I wanted to portray in MILLIE WANTS TO PLAY!"
