This book is really funny and would also make a great lesson in the classroom for writing strategies about animals or things doing things that humans do.

I love Click, Clack Moo! It is a fantastic picture book about some cows who inadvertently find themselves with a typewriter. The cows take to typing ransom notes to their farmer demanding may amenities for life in the barn, including heated blankets. This is a must read!

A mini lesson that can be used with this text is "Conquering onomatopoeia".The students will be expanding their writing strategies with personification. You can first give the students the definition and an explanation of personification ... this ties into how the story depicts cows typing and doing something that a human does.

I would use this story to model the rhyming going on in the story and how we can use it in our own writing. ( )

I would use this book to teach how authors give context clues to decode the meanings of words. This book is also great to teach character traits setting point of view and conflict and solution comprehension skills. This book also shows how inportant and meaningful a letter can be. writers write to be heard by others . ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0689832133, Hardcover)

The literacy rate in Farmer Brown's barn goes up considerably once his cows find an old typewriter and begin typing. To the harassed farmer's dismay, his communicative cows quickly become contentious:

Dear Farmer Brown,
The barn is very cold at night. We'd like some electric blankets.
Sincerely,
The Cows

When he refuses to comply with their demands, the cows take action. Farmer Brown finds another note on the barn door: "Sorry. We're closed. No milk today." Soon the striking cows and Farmer Brown are forced to reach a mutually agreeable compromise, with the help of an impartial party--the duck. But this poor, beleaguered farmer's "atypical" troubles are not over yet!

This hilarious tale will give young rebels-in-the-making a taste of the power of peaceful protest and the satisfaction of cooperative give and take. Witty watercolors by award-winning illustrator Betsy Lewin (Snake Alley Band, Araminta's Paint Box) will make this a favorite for one and all, even if words such as "ultimatum" and "neutral" throw the younger set. (Ages 5 to 8) --Emilie Coulter
