I have 2-year old twin boys and we all absolutely love this book! The writing flows well and is easy to read aloud, the illustrations hold their interest, and the storyline is fun enough that I love reading it over and over. A must-have for any child!

Pure fun, even for adults. Excellent read-aloud and while adults may or may not appreciate the "labor vs management" theme, the majority will simply appreciate the humor along with the children. The knowledge that publishers initially turned it down added to my appreciation. It really is very well done!

Your political leanings, notwithstanding, Click, Clack, Moo Cows That Type by Doreen Cronin, is a wonderful book that will have children and adults laughing out loud. Farmer Brown is angered when he learns that not only does he own literate cows, but that they can type, and type they do with a daily list of demands to make their life more comfortable. Soon the cows are joined in their endeavor by the chickens, along with their demands, and more fun ensues. At first Farmer Brown refuses to deal with what he sees as recalcitrant bovine, but reconsiders when the animals enlist the aid of a duck mediator. Through a series of negotiations the cows and chickens get their demands met, but alas, the farmer learns too late, ducks also know how to type. I don¿t know if this book really teaches children about mediation and cooperation as some reviews suggest, however, I do know that it will teach children how to laugh. The story is aided by wonderful watercolor illustrations by Betsy Lewin. Her very simple renderings add to the humor of the story, and the expressions on the faces of animals is worth the price of the book alone. Quill says: This fantastic book also earned the Caldecott Honor in 2000, and is worth revisiting.

I loved this book. It's got a unique story and is funny enough for adults to enjoy too. I loved the part about the duck delivering the ultimatum because he was neutral. Cute and clever.

This book is funny and my son enjoys it. However, I did buy it for him when he was too young. The cardboard cutouts aren't sturdy enough for my 23 month old. When he is older I will let him play with it alone but for now we only play with it together.

I first came across this book while volunteering at my 3yr old daughters daycare during story time and realized what she'd been chanting about at home. As she read aloud to her students (her dolls and stuffed animals)I would hear her say "Click Clack Moo". I could really hear the enthusiasm in her little voice. As I sat in on story time with her class I could see why she loved this book so much; its absolutely adorable and funny! However not only was it a fun book the way her teacher turned it into a lesson for the class with counting of the cows and also learning definitions of some of the words used within the book. I fell in love with this book and went out the next day and bought it for her and she requires that I read it to her EVERY day, but I don't mind because its just as enjoyable to me as it is for her. I plan on buying her Giggle, Giggle, Quack next for her.

Click, Clack, Moo Cows That Type, by Doreen Cronin, was an excellent story book for children. The pictures were very vibrant and went along with the story. The repetition of Click, Clack, Moo was very good and helped tie the type-writer into the story. I think that kids will find it hilarious that the cows can type. The book allows them to use their imagination because they know that real cows cannot do that. I think it is awesome that the ducks get the typewriter in the end and start typing letters to the Farmer...a diving board. I would recommend this book to any family/child that likes to laugh together. Super fun!

This book is great for engaging students! I read it to my mother's students in her Special Education class and they absolutely loved it! They were totally engaged by the illustrations and the story. The way the author writes this book is spectacular! She uses short, simple sentences to carry out big ideas. This makes it very easy for children to relate to the book. Also, the illustrations are nothing short of amazing! They immediately engage the students, but do not overpower the story. I love this book so much that I plan to use it with my future students, as well as my future children.

In this funny story, 'Click, Clack, Moo: Cows that Type', by: Doreen Crown, the cows are typing letters to the farmer to ask for blankets. The farmer types back to him and says no. Thw cows keep typing and then the farmer decides to give them blankets and put them next to the door. I feel sorry for the farmer because he keeps on getting angrier and angrier! My favorite part was that the cows were making the farmers crazy. Sometimes I make my mom crazy! In the end I felt happy because they got what they wanted. 'Click, Clack, Moo, Click, Clack, Moo, Clickety, Clack, Moo!', the cows type. They typer forever until they get what they want! I recommend this book to first graders because it is the funniest book!

Click, Clack, Moo cows that type is a book about a group of cows that learns how to type and starts to make demands to their farmer. The farmer gets so fed up with all the typing he trades with the cows and gives into their demands.I loved this book! It is so cute and funny! The pictures and illustrations are very well done also.I would use this book in my classroom as a fun read along with the students, every time the books says Click, Clack, Moo I would have the students repeat it with me. This book could also be used in a fun lesson about farms and what certain farm animals do on the farm, the children could then create their own picture of their favorite farm animal and explain why its their favorite.
