The farmer refuses, because of this the cows decide to withhold their milk. Then the same thing happens with the hens. The farmer realizes this is not a way to run a farm and wants to have a truce.

I thought that this was a light/easy read. In a classroom setting, it would provide the idea for the students to work together to come up with an agreement when dealing with an issue or topic on hand. This book has won the Caldecott Award in 2001 and was published in 2001.
This book is a phenomenal piece that describes the powers of negotiation. Throughout the story, you see that the author is trying to convey that the farmer has to give the cows what they want, in order to receive their milk. The author also includes a neutral party that helps the cows and the farmer come to an agreement. The cows decided to give back the type writer and provide the farmer their milk, if the farmer provides electric blankets.
This is such a fun one! I love this story of a group of cows demanding better working conditions from the farmer via type written letters. I shared it with my husband and his response was “F**k yeah!” Thank you @Reggie for sending this one to me. 🐮 ⌨️(there is no typewriter emoji)
The wonderful @Reggie sent me some lovely books, but I want to show off the card! I always love the cards Reggie sends as they are usually related to horror, which we both love. I think this is my favorite so far and I‘m going frame it. 😈
Earlier this week I was gonna post a photo of a bridge and comment how I was going to throw myself off of it if I didn‘t reach 100 books for the year(I‘m joking) Instead now I‘m gonna show how I‘m gonna cheat my way there. I was shopping for a swap and wandered into the kids section and picked up this book all about labor disputes depicted by a group of cows who band together to withhold their milk until their demands are met, of 👇🏼
