Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Margaret Orto
Words and pictures are successfully meshed together to create a simple story that supports reading independence in this book. Using only 50 words, Hillert conveys the life and work of cowboys. The abilities of a little and inexperienced cowboy are compared and contrasted with those of a big and experienced cowboy as they work together. The appealing illustrations provide details that text, with its limited vocabulary, can't. Thus, a picture of a guitar illustrates the sentences, "Here is something cowboys like. You can play it. It is fun to play." Similarly, a picture of the two cowboys eating at dusk by a campfire illustrates the sentences, "The big cowboy and the little cowboy can eat now. My, this is good." For this revised and expanded library edition, an instructional note as well as a word list and activities for reading reinforcement are provided. These activities will be familiar to classroom teachers but not necessarily to parents. Part of the "Easy Stories" set within the "Beginning-to-Read" series. Reviewer: Margaret Orto
