Picture ebooks Highlights | Click, Clack, Moo, Cows That Type

By Monica C. RSS Thu, June 11, 2020

We are back with another Picture ebook Highlights, a series where we put the spotlight on an ebook that you can read at home, using the Free Library's Digital Media portal.

And this one is a winner: It’s Click, Clack, Moo, Cows That Type, written by Doreen Cronin and Illustrated by Betsy Lewin. This year marks the book's 20th anniversary! Since its publication back in 2000, it has remained in print and introduced many more fun titles featuring all its endearing characters.

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 —and that’s when the animals’ fun commenced!

This book has it all: a hilarious storyline that manages to both entertain and introduce the concepts of negotiation and collective bargaining. Farmer Brown has found his match in these independent-thinking barn animals!

The illustrations by Betsy Lewin match the story perfectly. She uses fresh, loose lines and watercolors to convey a wide range of expressions and settings. Her work in this book earned her a Caldecott Honor Medal! And here is a bonus: you can find an art note on the title page verso where the illustrator explains how she created the illustrations for this book. It’s fascinating!

But don’t stop with this title!  Follow up adventures include Giggle, Giggle, Quack, Click, Clack, Peep, Click, Clack, Surprise, Click, Clack Boo! A Tricky Treat, Click, Clack, Moo, I Love You, and Duck for President.

Be sure to check Overdrive Kids eReading Room, for this title and many more being added!
