Overview

"Justin gets in here just before you every day, Mama. And he does nothing around here." - Evelyn

"You can make your own egg, Justin." - Hadiya

"Justin, why didn't you clean your room?" - Mama

Justin's sisters and his mama are always fussing at him. No wonder he's glad to go visit Grandpa's ranch. While he's there he will ride his favorite horse, Black Lightning, see the cowboys at the rodeo, and forget all about "women's work."

Mildred Pitts Walter writes with the sure touch of experience. She tells about a very special grandfather and about a boy's struggle to make it in a "man's world" — even though he is surrounded by women.

Suffering in a family full of females, ten-year-old Justin feels that cleaning and keeping house are women's work until he spends time on his beloved grandfather's ranch.

    My son loved this book

    He started reading this even though it was a little above his reading level. He couldn't put it down. He also asked for more books by that author. That's about the best review a book can get!

    I wavered between 4 and 5 stars because because I was looking at

    I wavered between 4 and 5 stars because because I was looking at this from my adult perspective. I thought it was very well written, had enough historical detail and research to be of educational value, and the story was pretty good  and had an underlying positive message. A 4. Nine year old boy with a big sister reads it and it becomes a laugh out loud, can't put it down, "I know just how he feels!" 5 star book. He loved the ending. I really recommend this book for little brothers and big sisters. Would be great for a family book club because it deals with  situations in many households.

    Justin and the Best Biscuits

    My students enjoyed this book because they have already read part of it in their regular literature books. They enjoyed the "story in a story" about Justin's ancestors. They also understood the concept of sharing work and duties and not dividing these things up between the sexes.

    Justin learns many new things.

    This book has exciting parts. If you like cowboys and rodeos this is a great book for you. It also teaches you about the history of this boy's family. I would recommend this book to my friends.
