November is Picture Book Month (http://picturebookmonth.com/calendar/).  What a great idea to celebrate the first connection to books most children have – and don’t we all remember a few favorites even as adults?

Tuesday was a farm theme day in the Picture Book Month calendar.  One of my favorite farm-themed picture books is Click Clack Moo Cows That Type by Doreen Cronin with pictures by Betsy Lewin.

The book begins with Farmer Brown, who has a problem:  his dairy cows type on an old typewriter they found in the barn.  Then, the cows leave him a polite note asking for electric blankets.  When the farmer says no, things get interesting.  The cows and hens go on strike, leaving a new note that says:  “Closed.  No milk.  No Eggs.”

The story continues with more notes, and the involvement of a duck.  It ends with the cows and hens sleeping under electric blankets, and the ducks asking for a diving board.

The bold, colorful illustrations and the silly text – including the repeating “Click, clack, moo” – will hold young children’s attention, and leave everyone giggling.

Two paws up.
