Cowboy up!

We’re going to a rodeo tomorrow!  Along with beaches, baseball, camping and fairs, rodeos are one of those lovely summer themes that I chose not to get specific on when I made my Top Ten Summer List. There’s just too many great summery books out there.  Still, to get y’all into the mood, here are a few great cowboy related picture books:
 Armadillo Rodeo by Jan Brett
Cowboy Small by Lois Lenski
White Dynamite and Curly Kidd by Bill Martin Jr.
Buffalo Bill by D’Aulaire
The Brave Cowboy by Joan Walsh Anglund
Why Cowboys Sleep With Their Boots On by Laurie Knowlton
