Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type

Click Clack Moo: Cows That Type - Doreen Cronin, Betsy Lewin

Written by: Doreen Cronin 

Illustrated by: Betsy Lewin 


Click, Clack, Moo is about a bunch of farm animals that get ahold of a typewriter and start sending Farmer Brown notes about different things that they want. But Farmer Brown thinks the animals requests are crazy so he refuses and the animals go on strike, refusing to do what he asks. Eventually, the animals and Farmer Brown reach an agreement and the animals get what they asked for.


This book is fun for 2nd-4th graders. An activity you could do with students would be to have them write their own letters to Farmer Brown, telling him what they might want and pretending to be different animals. This book also has repetition which helps to get the students involved in the reading of the story!
