Meet the Yak: A 15-Minute Book for Early Readers

Length: 21 pages7 minutes


A yak is a big, hairy cow. It lives in Asia.
Yaks are part of the cow family. Like cows, they have four skinny legs and big, round bodies. They also have long noses and horns on top of their head.
But a yak is much bigger than a cow. They are taller than a man! They are also as long as a small car.
There is one funny thing about yaks. They are much bigger than a milk cow, but they are just about as heavy
This book is a shortened version of our popular “Yaks: Hairy Cows of Asia" and is intended for beginning readers. With only 1293 easy to read words, young children can experience for themselves the joy of learning about the yak. They will find out the answers to these questions:
What is a yak's skirt?
Do yaks moo like other cows?
Can a yak live where it is warm?
How bad does yak poop smell?
And many more!
