Summary: The Cows use an old typewriter to send Farmer Brown ultimatums from the Barn. No milk & no eggs, unless they get electric blankets. Imagination reigns supreme as you imagine cows, chickens, and ducks taking on human traits--but without speaking a word.
Type of Reading: bedtime story, playtime reading, independent reading, read aloud book
Recommended Age: read together: 3 to 8; read yourself: 7 to 9
Interest Level: 3 to 8
Reading Level: 2.3
Age of Child: Started reading with child nearly 2 years old.
Young Reader Reaction: This is a well-liked book, and we like to repeat the animal sounds. It wasn't love-at-first-sight like its sister book (Giggle, Giggle, Quack).
Adult Reader Reaction: A little wordier than Giggle,Giggle, Quack but an equally fun read.
Pros: This is one that we can chuckle with every time. It will hold up well with repeated readings and we can always engage the kid in making barnyard sounds.
Cons: Cows and Chickens on strike are a little beyond a toddler's understanding.
Borrow or Buy: Borrow it first, to see how it goes. If you like this one, definitely get "Moo" and "Giggle".
