Standing under the Bar S Ranch sign, Cowboy Small greets his readers. Readers take a day's journey with the little cowboy and his trusted horse. Author and illustrator, Lenski presents the life of a cowboy in short, easily read sentences that explain the many facets of living on a ranch. The colorful illustrations provide an image of life on a ranch. The book also includes a glossary of terms. Lois Lenski's talent as an illustrator is showcased on the inside covers of the book where drawings and vocabulary of a horse and equipment and gear used as well as a cowboy's attire are drawn. This book is timeless and bound to entertain the young reader. 2001 (orig. 1949), Random House,
