Overview

"Giddy up, Cowgirl, it’s time to help Momma run some errands!"

"YEE HAW!" says Cowgirl.

Cowgirls love to be helpful.

Cheerful and energetic Cowgirl is determined to help Momma whenever and wherever she can—whether she’s finding a lost checkbook at the bank, mailing letters at the post office, or toting laundry to the dry cleaners. But while Cowgirl is always an eager helper, the results are often eyebrow-raising! At the end of a busy day, when Cowgirl’s helpfulness begins to backfire, it’s Momma who helps Cowgirl, letting her know that trying is just as important as helping. Giddy Up Cowgirl is a story that every parent and child can relate to . . . and learn from!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
Cowgirl loves to help, so when Momma tells her it is time to run some errands, Cowgirl responds with a loud, "Yee Haw!" When they discover that Momma's car radio is not working, Cowgirl sings songs as they travel. At the bank, Cowgirl is able to find Momma's lost checkbook. Then she helps mail lots of letters (most of which are shown flying to the sidewalk). Cowgirl drops pieces of clothing as she approaches the counter in the cleaners. She proudly holds the list as they go toward the grocery store. Unfortunately, a gust of wind blows the list away. Fortunately, Cowgirl remembers all the items written there (chocolate, jelly beans, marshmallows, ice cream, cupcakes…). Of course, Cowgirl helps carry groceries to the car. Of course, the bag rips and broken eggs stream onto the parking lot. Her understanding mom is forgiving, because Cowgirl always tries to help. They start for home and Cowgirl opens the car door by herself. Whoops! How come that red car is parked so close? Cowgirl is depicted as an energetic youngster with a slightly oversized head and a huge mouth, which is often open displaying a missing tooth. Momma is shown as loving and patient. Overall the illustrations portray lots of action, but the dark backgrounds on many pages give the feeling that some of the story is occurring in the middle of the night.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Momma has a whole list of errands to run so she tells her daughter to "Giddy up." Cowgirl, an exuberant child with lots of imagination and energy, is determined to be helpful. As the two proceed through their tasks, several problems occur. Sometimes Cowgirl is successful in solving them (she sings to compensate for the broken car radio); at other times, disaster ensues (she scatters letters to be mailed on the sidewalk). At the grocery store, Cowgirl lets go of the list, which blows away in the wind. She assures her mother, "I remember EVERYTHING on that list," and then fills the basket with candy and treats. Even though Momma visibly loses patience by the end of the trip, the story finishes with hugs all around. The spare narrative is peppered with cowboy drawl. The bright cartoon illustrations really shine: they fill in the text's broad outlines by using facial expressions to add humor and warmth. Krosoczka does a good job of selecting situations that both children and adults will find funny. The lively language and colorful artwork make this tale a "Yippeee Yi YEEEE!" choice for reading aloud.-Susan E. Murray, Glendale Public Library, AZ Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
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)
