Ms. Morris' Classroom Library

A list of some of my favorite Children's books. These are books that I have in my personal classroom library or books I would like to have.

Click, Clack, Moo Cows That Type

Click Clack Moo: Cows That Type - Doreen Cronin, Betsy Lewin

Click, Clack, Moo Cows That Type by Betsy Lewin is a book about Farmer Brown who has a problem. His cows like to type. Farmer Brown thinks it's odd when he hears typing sounds coming from the barn. But his troubles really begin when his cows start leaving him notes. First they demand better working conditions, then they stage a strike.
