#Review: Click, Clack, Moo Cows That Type by Doreen Cronin/ Illustrated by Betsy Lewin #Kidsbooks, #OddityOdysseyReadingChallenge, #Caldecott


Summary:
Farmer Brown has a problem. His cows like to type. All day long he hears:
Click, clack, moo. 
Click, clack, moo. 
Click, clack, moo.
But Farmer Brown's problems REALLY begin when his cows start leaving him notes...Come join the fun as a bunch of literate cows turn Farmer Brown's farm upside-down!


My review:
I know that any kid or adult that reads this book is going to love it. The absurdity of cows typing notes to Farmer Brown is enough to make any child laugh out loud, but when other animals get in on the action...oh, what is a farmer to do?

As I read I could hear each of the farm animals and the click, clack of the typewriter too. Close your eyes and just imagine it. Funny for sure!

The colors used on the pages were certainly ones you would see on a farm. The illustrations were large, some-what cartoon-ish, and exaggerated, which added to the humor of the book overall.

Even though I did not get a CD with this book, you can now purchase one with it in a package deal, Without a doubt that would be an awesome thing to have as kids can read along and hear all the sounds around the barnyard.

If the writing and illustrations are not enough, just the fact that the book is a Caldecott winner should seal the deal.

Simply read the book, this is a "click-clack" good time and one you don't want to miss.
5 stars!
