This Caldecott Prize-winning book takes us all back to the old fashioned barn. The cows are cold and Farmer Brown doesn’t seem to care. When the cows find an old typewriter and learn to type, they nail their first demand to the barn door: “Dear Farmer Brown, The barn is very cold at night. We'd like some electric blankets. Sincerely, The Cows.” When he refuses to comply with their demands, Farmer Brown finds another note on the barn door: "Sorry. We're closed. No milk today." Unfortunately for Farmer Brown, his farm is filled with animals that have needs of their own. The strike won’t end until everyone learns the art of compromise. This hilarious tale will give young rebels-in-the-making a taste of the power of peaceful protest.
