“Outskirts is a wonderful publishing company. I am in the process of having two more children’s books published by Outskirts. I have already recommended a friend and will continue to do so. Brie was exceptional and very helpful!”

It’s a hot day at the farm when Norman the baby bull starts to feel sick from the heat and curls up in the shade of a tree, too weak to stand. His friend Chase notices Norman’s distress and immediately comes to comfort him and cool him down. The next morning, Chase can’t wait to go check on Baby Bull Norman to see if he is feeling better. Children who are taught to show kindness for animals tend to grow up to be kind and concerned about people too. Very often, animals become family to us, and they need to be protected and helped when they are sick, sad, or lonely. Chase and Baby Bull Norman reinforces this concept in a fun and colorful story that’s sure to delight children and adults alike! Proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to the Ronald McDonald House Foundation.
