Click Clack Moo: Cow's That Type by Doreen Cronin is a book about cows that get a hold of an old type writer and decide to go on strike against Farmer Brown. They make continuous requests/demands (for example electric blankets) in order to give Farmer Brown their milk. I would rate this book a four out of five stars and It is listed as an AD160L on the Lexile scale. I would have my students write letter to the Farmer Brown making a request from a different animal. I would make it clear that the students could choose any other animal they would see at a farm except a cow. This is a super cute book that i will have on my bookshelf for sure.
This book kept me giggling. My favorite part was when the cows would type on the type writers to write the farmer and the farmer could not figure out who was writing him letters. I think the cows were very smart going about getting what they wanted from the farmer. The activities that I can do with my students would be cause and effect, cow puppets, or writing activities.

Women don’t have to fall into a stereotype.
Tara, Cam and Stella are strangers living their own lives as best they can – though when society’s screaming you should live life one way, it can be hard to like what you see in the mirror.
When an extraordinary event ties invisible bonds of friendship between them, one woman’s catastrophe becomes another’s inspiration, and a life lesson to all.
Sometimes it’s ok not to follow the herd.
Wow! I hardly know where to start! The Cows is a funny, insightful book about female relationships that I just couldn't put down. I ended up reading it in practically one sitting, it's such a page-turner. I adored the main characters, especially Tara and Cam. They are very well written and both characters are incredibly complex. I wasn't so keen on Stella, but I don't feel I could identify with her very well so I found it difficult to appreciate where she was coming from. The supporting characters deserve a mention too as they played their part well; the author's descriptive writing style bringing them to life right off the page.
As far as the actual story goes, it made me feel happy, sad, and confused, a whole bucketload of emotions. I gasped out loud in shock, shouted at my kindle, laughed out loud, and cringed in places. It definitely doesn't hold back! Fantastic!
I'd like to thank Dawn O'Porter, HarperCollins and NetGalley for providing an ARC in return for my honest review.
