El granjero Brown cree que esta vez los animales se han sobrepasado y les escribe: "Ustedes son vacas y gallinas. Les exijo leche y huevos." Con prepotencia no se llega a buen puerto, pero el pato se ofrece como mediador y, tras arduas negociaciones, los animales del corral acceden a entregar la máquina de escribir y reciben a cambio unas cálidas mantitas. Todos están contentos y duermen sin frío, pero al día siguiente el granjero recibe otra nota...Esta vez los patos se aburren y exigen un trampolín...

Summary-In the book the cows have a typewriter in the barn,and they tell the farmer that they won't make milk until they get electric blankets because it's cold in the barn.Then then hens say they won't make eggs until they get electric blankets!Finally they say they will give the farmer the typewriter as long as they get electric blankets,and he says that is a fair trade so then everything is good!Personal Reaction-It was a very funny repetative book. Cows are my favorite animal in the world and I will definetly bring that into the classroom with me.Extension 1-You could teach the students about farming, maybe bring a local farmer into the classroom,,with where we live.Extension 2-Take a class trip to the farm,and interact with the animals.
Farmer Brown left a typewriter in the barn and the cows learned how to type letters. They left farmer Brown typed notes stating that they wanted electric blankets. He refused, so they and the chickens went on strike. They compromised on giving up the typewriter in exchange for electric blankets.This is a cute, silly book for children. It is definitely something that could never happen, which is probably why children like this book. This book would probably especially appeal to children who either have a farm and cows, or to children who live and large cities who have never spent time around cows.To incorporate this book into my classroom, I would like to take my students on a field trip to a local farm so that they can see the cows, chickens, and animals. I would also have them type a letter to a person of their choice stating what they want in exchange for something they will give up, during typing lessons.
