Click, Clack, Moo Cows That Type...and More Fun on the Farm

Fall 2003 DVD
Ages: 2 - 8 yrs.
DVD Price: $14.95
Review:
Hilarious story frames added to Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin’s Click, Click, Moo Cows That Type make the headlining story a reason to pick up this disc. The colors look crisp and the narrated text crackles with the lines of this clever commentary about negotiation (Cronin happens to be a lawyer).

Though the farm animal theme works nicely with the superbly chosen stories, the remaining adaptations lack animated panache. That said, young viewers will delight in the tall tale of The Day Jimmy’s Boa Ate the Wash and the imaginative The Pigs’ Wedding. Among the bonus materials are two other animated adaptations (The Cow Who Fell in the Canal and Tomie de Paola’s Charlie Needs a Cloak), as well as a Read Along feature, and a Spanish-language version of the title story. (Running time: 52 minutes)
