Cowboy Book Recommendation

Recently Joel brought home a Bob the Builder DVD from the library. In this particular DVD Bob goes on a western adventure. Cowboys. Lassos. Horses. Cows. They were all included. As a result of watching this DVD, Will has been greatly interested in cowboys this month.

So we took a little ride on down to the library and checked us out some cowboy books. I'll spare you the mediocre ones we brought home and just tell you about the one I wouldn't mind owning.The Cowboy's Handbook: How to Become a Hero of the Wild West. By Tod Cody.

If you are looking for a generic non-fiction book describing the life and history of cowboys, this is your book. It would make a great addition for a home school unit on Cowboys. A chili recipe, a pattern for making your own pint sized chaps, and instructions for lassoing would all make wonderful activities mixed in with descriptions of famous Cowboys and a cowboy's life. This book might be enough to satisfy your young cowboy or it might just whet his appetite for more.
