"Way out west, the warm winds blow. / The grass grows high, the sun hangs low. / I'll find a farm, there I'll go, / and I'll become a cowgirl."
From sun up to sun down, the girl in this story pretends to be a cowgirl as she pulls on her (rain) boots, saddles up her (stick) horse, and gallops off through the (backyard) hills. Filled with humor and imaginative play, this sweet story from Angela DiTerlizzi captures the dream of zillions of little girls everywhere -- the dream of being a cowgirl!
"DiTerlizzi’s rhyming text is simple and direct, with the requisite down home lilt (“I’ll check in on my chicken coops./ I’ll make my rope do loop-de-loops — / a lasso spinnin’, makin’ hoops”). In her first picture book, Vukovic (the Jasmine Toguchi series) depicts her stylish heroine in a wide range of framings — she comes across as wholly independent and powered by boundless, sunny energy."
