Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type Book Trailer

Last week my Mother-In-Law, who is a School Librarian at Sheldon Early Childhood Academy did a few book trailers for their school website. She asked me to borrow a typewriter to aid in making the trailer. I quickly ran through my head picking out the best choice for the occasion. My Smith Corona Sterling I though for the sound and overall look would be best. Anyways I thought everyone in the typosphere would get a kick out of this. I found it especially amusing how the school librarian at the Sheldon High School couldn't figure out how to use the carriage return.

P.S. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!


  1. pretty cool. did i hear this story read on npr recently? it seemed familiar but yes it needed the typing noises. you should have made it a guessing game - which machine did you lend them?

  2. Nice video. I just requested that book from the local library for my five-year-old. He loves using my typewriters and being read to, so it should work out well. I think it's funny that Farmer Brown didn't know how to return the carriage. Damn digital age! :)

  3. P.S.

    I picked up a Sterling just like yours over the weekend. They are pretty cool machines.

  4. That's a great book, I have a copy, of course.

  5. We picked up the copy from the library on Saturday. My son and I are enjoying it. Thanks for the recommendation.

  6. Hi there, just wanted to say that I borrowed a picture from you, you can find it here:

    I linked it back to you and hope it´s OK! :-)
