Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type
Doreen Cronin, Simon and Schuster Book 2000
It's cold in the barn and the cows want blankets - and since they found an old typewriter, they are able to post their request on the barn door. When Farmer Brown refuses - and won't even negotiate - they go on strike! Eventually Farmer Brown breaks out his own typewriter to reply with his own ultimatum (and, oh my, do children love that word!!). Duck - "as a neutral party" - delivers it to the strikers (now including the chilly chickens). Eventually a compromise is reached and the cows surrender their typewriter to Duck. The next day, Farmer Brown receives a new note - the ducks want a diving board! This is a funny, funny, wonderful book about the importance of including all members of a group in decision making.
