Poor Farmer Brown! He has cows that can type and they use their typing skills to request electric blankets to keep them warm in the cold barn. Farmer Brown thinks this is ludicrous so he says NO! Turns out the cows are not willing to take no for an answer and they go on strike. When that doesn't work, they request electric blankets for the hens too. Of course he says no and the hens go on strike too! What hilarity! Farmer Brown send the Duck as a neutral party to give his answer. The cows counter his ultimatum with an offer to trade the typewriter for the electric blankets. What will he do? This is a great book for Preschool through 2nd grade. Students love it as a read aloud, and then love to check it out to read and reread it again!

This is the story about cows who like to type. They begin to leave Farmer Brown notes demanding better conditions on the farm or the animals will go on strike. A funny book with a subtle message about the power of working together for a common goal. ( )

The cows are cold at night in the barn and Farmer Brown will not supply blankets. Fortunately, the cows have a typewriter and they start to write letters to Farmer Brown. They want blankets and until the blankets arrive, there will be no milk. Other animals on the farm start making their demands as well and soon Farmer Brown has no production from the cows or the hens. Duck comes in as the negotiator and manages to get blankets for the cows as long as they give the typewriter back to Farmer Brown. All seems to end well until Duck writes his own letter to Farmer Brown. Beautifully illustrated and fun to read!

Click, Clack, Moo Cows That Type is a fun picture books that tells the story about some cold cows that wish that they had electric blankets. They type letters to the farmer and he writes them back. This back and fourth exchange is filled with humor, trickery, anticipation on whether the cows will get their blankets and how the ducks on the farm also get involved in the situation going down on the farm. Students will love this book and the fabulous and colorful pictures. This book leads to a great discussion on why or why not the cows should get their blankets, students will be able to share their opinions and brainstorm ideas for the cows and the story ends with children having to infer what might be coming next. This is a must read, the repeated wording lets students as young as kindergarten participate-they will soon be chanting "click, clack, moo, clickety, clack, moo!"

Click, Clack Moo is a fun, humorous and engaging story for all ages! It tells the story of cows who write a letter to the farmer about getting electric blankets because they are cold. When he refuses, they write a letter on their typewriter saying that the will no longer be giving milk then. The chickens also join in. In the story a compromise needs to be made, which stands to be a great teaching point from this book. Animals cannot talk; however, this modern fantasy depicts what animals might say or want to say even though they wouldn't have the typewriting skills to be able to ! ( )
