    Hey! French fellows! You don't understand this review? Check this. You're welcome. All in all, an hilarious and original book. It gave bad ideas to my pupils though. Oh, well. Better now than never. We must preserve our reputation after all. PS. I always knew ducks weren't worthy of trust. Just saying.

    Perhaps the most comprehensive book ever written on understanding labor dispute.

    All of my kids have loved this one! Especially the ending where Duck takes off with the typewriter!

    HA HA! Workers of the world unite! I'm not sure how I accidentally checked out this book on how to explain union movements to your toddler, but this was a h-i-l-a-r-i-o-u-s, bizarre, and unexpected read.

    You gotta watch out for those smart cows. Once they realize their power over farmers, there is no end to what they might ask for. Room service. Extra towels. Facials. And you know what THAT means - the price of ice cream will skyrocket!Never let a cow near a typewriter, that's all I'm saying.

    This book is absolutely hilarious! I may have an infantile sense of humour but this book made me laugh like a deranged milkman. It reminded me of the sort of thing Spike Milligan used to write.The illustrations are also rather wonderful, in a Quentin Blake-ish style. Fantastic book. Every child should have this on their bookshelf.

    Amusing though smacked a little too much of labor strikes and typical corporate bad guys vs. dissatisfied workers for my taste... I know, I know, it is a kids book, though, and it IS hilarious to think of those cows click-clack-mooing away in the barn! :-)

    I want to give this book five stars. It's so fun to read and the artwork is wonderful. But the little 17-month old in whose library it now belongs, is a little slow to warm up to new books. So I'm withholding a star until he responds to it the way he does to Little Blue Truck and Go, Dogs, Go!

    I wonder how cows managed to type with their reduced number of digits and no opposable thumbs. At least the hens or the messenger duck could have used the hunt and peck method, but apparently this did not occur until later in the book. This book was written in the year 2000. One wonders why the farm animals did not use computers; with a decent voice recognition software, they might have avoided the awkwardness and tedium of typing altogether.

    QUYỂN SÁCH CÁCH MẠNGBò đánh máy mở đường cho con gái đến với thế giới sách nói chung và sách ít chữ nhiều tranh đẹp mê ly nói riêng. Ờ thì dù chưa biết chữ nhưng con nghe mẹ đọc vậy chắc cũng không khác mấy với mẹ nghe sách nói.Mẹ đã cố gắng nhập vai tốt nhất có thể, đầu tiên là bò, sau đó là vịt. Một lần, hai lần còn thú vị, chứ đến lần thứ n - khi mà trang sách đã khá nhàu rồi á - thì mẹ chả thích thú gì nữa, vì cứ phải b ò ò ò, b ò ò ò, b ò ò ò..., quạc, quạc, quạc... liên tục thôi. Con gái hãy mau lên lớp một để tự đọc ngôn ngữ của bọn bò và vịt nhé.Bây giờ viết đôi ba dòng cho quyển sách thì có hơi muộn rồi. Vì sao ư? Vì giờ mẹ và con đã có rất nhiều cuốn sách tranh khác để so sách. Đặt nó vàTrái tim của mẹ lên bàn cân thì, nội dung - nó nhỉnh hơn một chút chỉnh (thật ra là nhiều hơn một chút), hình thức - nó lép vế một tí teo (chính xác là chỉ nhiêu đó thôi).Sau này có thể tự mình trò chuyện với sách, con sẽ thấy điều đó, điều khác biệt về nội dung ấy. Chứ giờ mẹ nói thì cũng mất hay đi. Quyển này có mấy chữ đâu mà mẹ đã viết đến chừng này rồi lại thêm chừng nữa thì chắc các bạn khác không còn hứng thú đọc Bò đánh máy đâu con ạ.(Có điều, nếu nói thì ngắn dọn thế này: Bò đánh máy là đồng minh củaChuyện ở nông trại. Dòng này thì dành cho các bạn mẹ, con không cần bận tâm nghen.)Giờ thì mẹ chỉ xin nói nhỏ với con rằng thì là mà mẹ thấy nét vẽ hơi bị không đẹp nha, theo kiểu nguệch ngoạc ngô nghê con ạ. Và vì mẹ con ta không am hiểu gì về hội họa nên cứ xì xầm thế này thôi nhá. Có khi đó là tuyệt tác, vì không thế thì sao bà Lewin lại có được tiếng vang lớn nhờ minh họa cho Bò đánh máy chứ.Thôi, nói bấy nhiêu đủ rồi con ạ. (Có khi dư luôn.)

    Not so much a preschool aged book as for older children. My 5 yr old got a kick out of it and paid attention throughout. The illustrations were adorable and I could see us getting a copy of this and reading it again in the future. Simple story line that had everyone laughing.

    We've all heard that the "pen is mightier than the sword" and "the squeaky wheel gets the grease," well in Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type by Doreen Cronin, Farmer Brown learns firsthand just how true these adages are when his cows find a typewriter in the barn and demand better treatment.When Farmer Brown first hears the click-clack sounds coming from the barn, he tries digging out the wax buildup in his ears because cows can't type!But these cows can, and they nail their demands on the barn wall: Dear Farmer Brown, The barn is very cold at night. We'd like some electric blankets. Sincerely, The CowsFarmer Brown will not give in to their demands, so they go on strike and withhold their milk. It's not long before the hens feel the chill in the barn and join the strike.This puts Farmer Brown in a tizzy because every fool knows you can't run a farm with no milk and no aiggs! So he dusts off his own typewriter and bangs out a letter reminding the cows and hens that they are animals and he demands that they produce for him.Eventually the two sides come to an agreement, and peace returns to the farm. That is until Duck feels empowered to make his own demands known. Seems what the boring pond has always needed is a diving board.Click, Clack, Moo rightly received a Caldecott Award in 2001 and was named one of the Best Children's Book by Publisher's Weekly.

    Comments on the Story:Have you ever wondered what cows would ask for if they could some how manage to type a letter to the farmer? Well if you want to find out then you should read this book.Recommend Uses for this Book:This book would be a great book for a preschool storytime. I have thought of using this book for "working together" type themes, because the cows work together to get something they want. This might also be a great story to do a flannel board.

    Trying to compare the original with the new ready-to-read edition... somehow they don't seem the same in my mind.... Can any of you see them side-by-side and tell me?----------------Finally did get a chance to compare them side-by-side and they are exactly the same. Whew.

    Very humorous, even though a little bit absurd (cows that type?) story. The book works best when read aloud, as the refrain "click clack moo" is rhythmical and thus can be easily remembered. It does not only teach how to organize a strike (in a way), but also teaches one important lesson: do not give the cows a typewriter. More seriously, though, the book touches upon the topic of the life of farm animals, that on the one hand should be treated in a “humane” way, but on the other have certain duties. The illustrations are painted in watercolor, so there are rather not many details, but the colors are warm and distinct. The text is integrated in the pictures and there is a clear distinction between what is said by the narrator, and what is written by the farmer and the cows. In my opinion it is a great piece of reading for younger children.

    What a funny little book! I read Click Clack Moo: Cows That Type yesterday with 5 year old Abby and 3 year old Emma, my neighbor’s granddaughters.After the first few pages Abby started to giggle and said she knew what the cows were typing. “They want some electric blankets!”She had read this book at school and remembered it almost word for word! Both girls laughed uproariously all the way to the end of the book. Then I kept hearing “Again! Again! Read it again!”The drawings are funny and the story is outrageous. What young child doesn’t like funny animal stories! I’m not surprised that this book earned a Caldicott Honor.

    This is not a bilingual book, but it works very well for bilingual storytime, especially with a school-age group. This is a very popular title in English, so kids who do not speak Spanish have often read the story before and stay engaged hearing it in Spanish. The repeating "Clic, clac, muu" is the same in both languages and everyone can participate! I love using books that make parents and kids laugh together, and this is definitely one of those! Also great for print awareness.

    This book tells the story of Farmer Brown and his cows, who like to type using a typewriter. The cows and hens write Farmer Brown a note, complaining that they are very cold at night, and would like some electric blankets to keep them warm. When Farmer Brown refuses, the cows and hens go on strike, saying that there will be no milk or eggs. After some negotiations, the cows, hens and Farmer Brown agree that in exchange for the typewriter, he will provide them with electric blankets. However, Farmer Brown is in for a surprise when he gets a note from Duck, who was supposed to deliver the typewriter, saying that the pond is boring and that the ducks would like a diving board. The major themes of this children’s book are nonviolent protest, compromise and cooperation. I really enjoyed the text in this book. I think that the author did a great job at showing the two different sides of the argument, meaning the cows/hens as well as Farmer Brown. By adding the typewriter and the notes, the author was able to portray the protest in a nonviolent and almost innocent way. Also, the compromise at the end shows children that compromise is attainable and accessible. I recommend this book because not only is it funny and a little silly for children, but it still gives a lesson on nonviolent protest and compromise. Teachers could use this book when talking about events in history regarding protests, such as segregation protests in the 1960’s, or even current protests happening in our society today. Teachers can use this book to teach children about current events in a way that is fun for students.

    This book is one that used to belong to my stepdaughter. She always loved this books and would beg us to read them over and over again. I'm so happy to introduce them to my son and see if he loves them as much as she did.The cows on Farmer Brown's farm have gotten a hold of a typewriter. All day long he hears "Click, Clack, Moo". Soon the cows start leaving Farmer Brown notes demanding things like blankets. They threaten to go on strike.This book is a classic for sure. Funny and cute! It is not overly complicated and as always there is a slight twist at the end. Poor Farmer Brown always seems to get the short end of the deal.The illustrations are just great. Perfect for children's book and do a great job of showing motion. You can almost see the cows typing. The colors are perfect for the a farm color scheme.My son loved this one and thought it was perfectly silly. I'm glad he loved it just as much as his older sister did.5 out of 5 stars.*This book was read with my special needs son who is severely learning disabled. The review reflects not only my opinion but his as well

    Es un lindo libro sobre las vacas que se pueden escribir. Ellos van a la huelga en la granja mientras trataba de negociar con el agricultor. Excelente para los niños que leen español o niños y adultos que están aprendiendo español.It's a cute book about cows that type who go on strike on the farm while trying to negotiate with the farmer. It's great for children who can read Spanish or children and adults who want to learn Spanish.

    I love this more every time I read it. And it still amuses both of them (the kids I mean).***And while I'm thinking about it, let me add that I wish every picture book included a note about how the art was done. Maybe kids don't care, I've never thought to ask them, but I love that.

    Cronin's books are fabulous - consistently funny, always imaginative, and extremely clever. Sure, they're aimed a kids, but adults will appreciate the stories as well. This is the first I read, and the characters reappear in Duck For President and Dooby Dooby Moo, both of which are great reads as well.
