Looking for something different to give this Christmas ? Why not consider looking at the fine selection online at the bookstore of Union Communication Services Inc. There is a wide selection of books for various people on your list, including a goodly number of children's books. The cover of one of these is shown on the left. 'Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type' is for the younger (ages 3 to 7) union activists. It seems that Farmer Brown has a problem. All day long he hears "click,clack,,clack,moo" coming from the cow barn. What's all this about ? He gets the answer when the cows send a note to the farmhouse. They're cold, they say. No milk, they say, until they get electric blankets.
no way, says Farmer brown. But then the hens join in, and before you know it the ducks are acting as mediators. Then the ducks start getting their own ideas...but we don't want to spoil it for you. let's just say that farmer brown gets a lesson in labor-management relations and union (or is that moonion ?) solidarity, in a way your kids (and you too) will get a real kick out of. Beautifully illustrated. 32 pages, hard cover. Price $15.95 USD.
Go to the Union Communication Services website, and check out the full selection in the bookstore section.
