A Great Book For Reluctant Readers!!
This is a fun book for both reader and listener. It is interesting, funny, suspenseful and just plain great fun!! My soon to be eight grandson says he hates to read, but he picked this book up and read it in less than 5 minutes and couldn't put it down until he finished it. He just LOVED the ending, too. The author shows great imagination and knowledge of her reader group (preschool till 9 years old I believe it was rated by the publisher....although 59 year old grandmothers LOVED it, too!!) My personal recommendation is for children of all ages because it is truly different from other beginning reader books I've read in that the author uses real life situations with unlikely participants.....just reading the title: Clack, Clack, Moo, Moo: Cows That Type....gives you an excellent idea of what is likely to come. And it's a great read aloud story, too. However, picturing the perplexed farmer faced with cows AND chickens on strike, plus dissatisfact from his ducks who were his mediators make the story absolutely hilarious. I was raised with sing song books that went: Look, look, look, see, see, see, and I hated them in first grade. Then we got Dr.Seuss and nothing was ever boring again, but this book is the ultimate book for weary parents and grandparents, reluctant readers, avid readers, and anyone who just loves a good yarn spiced with great humor and amazing imagination. Books don't get any better than this one!!
