GIDDY UP, COWGIRL by Jarrett J. Krosoczka

GIDDY UP, COWGIRL

Age Range: 3 - 5

KIRKUS REVIEW

Yee Haw! Put on your cowboy boots and hats, buckaroos, and stand back because Cowgirl is gonna help Momma run some errands—cowgirls love to help. Cowgirl helps Momma find her checkbook at the bank; mail letters (most fall on the ground); carry in the dry cleaning (leaving a trail of clothes behind her); holds the grocery list which blows away but remembers everything on the list (jellybeans, marshmallows, ice cream); but then drops the grocery bag of eggs. Good thing for Cowgirl that she has an especially understanding and loving mom. Krosoczka’s exaggerated and comical illustrations have lassoed Cowgirl’s enthusiasm, her Momma’s exasperation and their affectionate bond. From page one, this charmer will tickle and delight kids, big and little, especially those who’ve ever played out a similar fantasy. Ride ’em, cowgirls! (Picture book. 3-5)
