For this week's theme of Farm, we are returning to our the Farm Theme BookClick, Clack, Moo Cows That Type by Doreen Cronin. It's a quirky, hilarious farmyard tale with Farmer Borwn who has a problem with his cows that like to type. His problem really begins when his cows start leaving him notes. A funny story your child will love.
If you can't get a copy of the book don't worry, snuggle down with your preschooler and watch it being read below. You'll also find some more farm books below that we recommend.
