A wonderfully unique story of revolution and compromise. Cronin and Lewin tell a wonderful tale with conflict, resolution, and a superb ending, all which too often are separated from the Board Book genre.

Farmer Brown discovers that his cows know how to type when he receives a message from them about their need for electric blankets. When he refuses to give them blankets the cows in turn refuse to give Farmer Brown any milk for the day. As the story moves on the cows continue to ask for items for not only themselves but also their friends, the hens. Overall this is a great book for young readers because it is humorous and will make children laugh out loud. The illustrations in the boom are also worth looking at because they focus on many different facial expressions to show what the characters are thinking. Children will also learn the life lesson that although it may seem very difficult to get things you want, if you never give up, there is always the opportunity to get what you are hoping for.

We’ve loved this children’s book for a while, and were not surprised to find it for sale on a union website as a gift for children. This book is the best inspiration we have ever seen to inspire a love of writing, and a feeling of empowerment. Talk about power of the pen! When Farmer Brown’s cows find a typewriter in the barn they realize they can start making demands. They go on strike when the farmer refuses to give them what they want. Doreen Cronin’s understated text and Betsy Lewin’s expressive illustrations make the most of this hilarious situation. Come join the fun as a bunch of literate cows turn Farmer Brown’s farm upside down. Buy a copy of this book for: your activist friends as comic relief; the children of your Republican friends to subvert them; children who haven’t yet figured out that writing can equal self-expression and liberation.

What I liked best about “Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type” was the humor of the entire story as it unfolds; it had gotten funnier and funnier as the story went on. My favorite part was when the cows put up the first strike letter, because their demands to the farmer were not being met, which said, “Sorry. We’re closed. No milk today.” Then the hens decided that they wanted the same as the cows so they joined in on the strike and then the letter left for the farmer said, “Closed. No milk. No eggs.” Of course the farmer was getting furious. The farmer and the animals kept writing letters back and forth until their disagreement was solved. I also loved the illustrations within the book. The bright and colorful pictures really keep my attention which made the story even better. I feel that this book would be appropriate to use with young readers/listeners because it teaches how to compromise and agree so both parties involved can be satisfied with the outcome. I will defiantly be investing in other Doreen Cronin books. In my opinion “Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type” deserves the Caldecott Honor Book Award that it received.

"Synopsis" by ,
A high-stakes adventure and hilarious ode to self-esteem for fans of Oliver Jeffers, Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type, and Louise, The Adventures of a Chicken.

Nadine can talk a blue streak, and one day she tells a real whopper: she isn't afraid of anything--no siree! Then her friends call her bluff, and Nadine must enter. . .The Deep. Dark. Woods. Only the woods aren't so scary after all, until the sun sets, that is, and Nadine can't find her friends. What is this boastful bovine to do? Run around in blind terror? Plummet off a cliff? Crash into a stream? Check, check, and check. But is all lost? Doubtful. After all, she is cow, hear her MOOOOOOOOO!

Hilarious and heartwarming read-aloud from IRA Childrens Book Award winner


Cuckoo hatches. And all is well. But when his brothers and sisters sing out Too-too-weet! Too-too-weet! Cuckoo instead chirps Cuckoo! and no one can understand him.

When he leaves his nest, Cuckoo still cant find anyone who speaks his language. He tries to communicate with the other animals—coomooing and buckooing and cabooing along the way—but he doesnt sound like anyone else out there! Just when he thinks all is lost, Cuckoo finds an unlikely friend who understands him perfectly.

IRA Childrens Book Award winner Fiona Roberton has created an utterly charming read-aloud about a little bird that will win fans over with his hilarious attempts at communication and determination to go to any length to find a friend.
