Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type
by Doreen Cronin
Farmer Brown has a problem. His cows like to type. All day long he hears, "Click, clack, MOO. Click, clack, MOO. Clickety, clack, MOO." But Farmer Brown's problems really begin when his cows start leaving him notes. Doreen Cronin's understated text and Betsy Lewin's expressive illustrations make the most of this hilarious situation. Come join the fun as a bunch of literate cows turn Farmer Brown's farm upside down.


Charlotte's Web
by E. B. White
An affectionate, sometimes bashful pig named Wilbur befriends a spider named Charlotte, who lives in the rafters above his pen. A prancing, playful bloke, Wilbur is devastated when he learns of the destiny that befalls all those of porcine persuasion. Determined to save her friend, Charlotte spins a web that reads "Some Pig," convincing the farmer and surrounding community that Wilbur is no ordinary animal and should be saved. In this story of friendship, hardship, and the passing on into time, E. B. White reminds us to open our eyes to the wonder and miracle often found in the simplest of things.

The Chicken-Chasing Queen of Lamar County
by Janice N. Harrington
Meet one smart chicken chaser. She can catch any chicken on her grandmother's farm except one -- the elusive Miss Hen. In a hilarious battle of wits, the spirited narrator regales readers with her campaign to catch Miss Hen, but this chicken is "fast as a mosquito buzzing and quick as a fleabite." Our chicken chaser has her mind set on winning, until she discovers that sometimes it's just as satisfying not to catch chickens as it is to catch them.

Rosie's Walk
by Pat Hutchins
Rosie the hen leaves the chicken coop and sets out for a leisurely little walk. Right behind her is the fox, slyly trying to catch up with her. Rosie's walk is quiet and uneventful, and eventually it leads her back to the coop blissfully unaware of the fox's travails as he tries -- unsuccessfully -- to navigate the obstacle course that Rosie has unwittingly led him through.


The Fox Went Out on a Chilly Night
by Peter Spier
A timeless folk song provides inspiration for Peter Spier's drawings in the Caldecott Honor Book The Fox Went Out on a Chilly Night. In the song, a fox forages for food in the village to bring to his family back in the den, much to a farmer's chagrin. The countryside of New England is depicted in the pictures accompanying the folk song, and the music is also included so everyone can sing along.
