Readers' Theater Script: Click, Clack, Moo, Cows That Type by Doreen Cronin


Narrator 1: Farmer Brown has a problem. His cows like to type. All day long he hears . . .

Audience: Click, clack, moo. Click, clack, moo. Clickety clack, moo.

Narrator 2: At first, he couldn’t believe his ears. Cows that type? Impossible!

Audience: Click, clack, moo. Click, clack, moo. Clickety clack, moo.

Narrator 3: Then he couldn’t believe his eyes. He got a note from the cows.

Cows: Dear Farmer Brown, The barn is very cold at night. We’d like some electric blankets. Sincerely, The Cows

Narrator 1: It was bad enough the cows had found the old typewriter in the barn, now they wanted electric blankets!

Farmer Brown: “No way. No electric blankets.”

Narrator 2: So the cows went on strike. They left a note on the barn door.

Cows: Sorry. We’re closed. No milk today.

Farmer Brown: “No milk today!”

Narrator 3: In the background, he heard the cows busy at work:

Audience: Click, clack, moo. Click, clack, moo. Clickety clack, moo.

Narrator 2: The next day, he got another note.

Cows: Dear Farmer Brown, The hens are cold too. They’d like electric blankets. Sincerely, The Cows

Narrator 3: The cows were growing impatient with the farmer. They left a new note on the barn door.

Farmer Brown: CLOSED, no milk, no eggs.

Narrator 1: In the background he heard them.

Audience: Click, clack, moo. Click, clack, moo. Clickety clack, moo.

Farmer Brown: “Cows that type. Hens on strike! Whoever heard of such a thing? How can I run a farm with no milk and no eggs!”

Narrator 2: Farmer Brown was furious. Farmer Brown got out his own typewriter.

Farmer Brown: Dear Cows and Hens: There will be no electric blankets. You are cows and hens. I demand milk and eggs. Sincerely, Farmer Brown

Narrator 3: Duck was a neutral party, so he brought the ultimatum to the cows.

Narrator 1: The cows held an emergency meeting. All the animals gathered around the barn to snoop, but none of them could understand moo.

Narrator 2: All night long Farmer Brown waited for an answer.

Narrator 3: Duck knocked on the door early the next morning. He handed Farmer Brown a note.

(Duck waddles over to Farmer Brown carrying a note in his beak.)

Cows: Dear Farmer Brown, We will exchange our typewriter for electric blankets. Leave them outside the barn door and we will send Duck over with the typewriter. Sincerely, The Cows

Narrator 1: Farmer Brown decided this was a good deal. He left the blankets next to the barn door and waited for Duck to come with the typewriter.

Narrator 2: The next morning he got a note.

Ducks: Dear Farmer Brown, The pond is quite boring. We’d like a diving board. Sincerely, The Ducks

Audience: Click, clack, quack. Click, clack, quack. Clickety, clack, quack.
