April storytelling around the book:

“Click, clack, moo cows that type”

 By Doreen Cronin and illustrated by Betsy Lewin

Saturday, April 25th 2009, 12 p.m.


“Farmer Brown’s cows have found an old typewriter in the barn, and now they are typing notes demanding electric blankets. The hens support the cows. The farmer types notes back. The ducks mediate the dispute, carrying typed notes between house and barn. This highly amusing tale combines several styles of writing: straight prose, letter-writing and sounds. Children will especially enjoy the repetitions of the sound effects: click, clack, moo! The pictures, with their bold, black lines and gentle cartoon humor, add to the comedy.”
