One of my favorite children's books!

This is a funny and clever book about animals typing up their requests for the farmer, but on another level it is about going on strike, selecting someone to represent you, stating your grievances, and changing working conditions. In other words, even an older audience would enjoy this smart book.

Is It Any Good?

CLICK, CLACK, MOO: COWS THAT TYPE is funny, clever, offbeat, silly and all around delightful. Kids will enjoy seeing those who are bossed around stand up for themselves and resist. And they'll also get a lesson in how to negotiate and get your way without throwing a tantrum. This modern classic inspired the sequels Giggle, Giggle, Quack; Dooby Dooby Moo; Thump, Quack, Moo; the Halloween-themed Click, Clack, Boo!: A Tricky Treat, and Duck for President.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
