A friend had a favorite book I would like to find. It was set during World War II. A family with children live in the country and have a Victory Cow. There is a school assembly where one boy must recite the Gettysburg Address. He has practiced while milking the cow. To help him remember during the performance his sister ties a rope to his belt so that he can make milking motions behind his back and keep the rhythm. I know those are odd recollections but they are the ones that stuck in her mind. She was born in 1944 and this sounds like a grade school level book so I'm guessing at the publication date.
