Grades PK-3

When Farmer Brown declares his farm a “tech-free zone” and stores his visiting granddaughter’s laptop in the barn, soon the shivering cows use her computer to type messages requesting blankets. When they are denied, the cows go on strike! And the chickens join in! No blankets means no milk and no eggs! Will Farmer Brown give in to the animals’ demands? Find out in a hilariously “mooooo-ving” musical about solidarity, negotiation, and compromise, based on the Caldecott Honor Book by Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin.

“We studied the Doreen Cronin books this year and the students loved to see the characters come alive.”

– 2nd grade teacher, El Verano Elementary School
