Clear, concise text and clever lift-the-flap illustrations capture the action and excitement of a rodeo. Beginning with the "Grand Entry" parade, the colorful, mostly full spreads depict and introduce various events, including bronc riding, steer wrestling, barrel racing, mutton busting (children four to seven years old attempt to ride a sheep bareback for at least six seconds), calf roping, and bull riding. Sturdy flaps unfold (sometimes opening out several times) to reveal text and depict movement (e.g., a bronc bursting out of the gate, a horse making a tight turn around a barrel, a spectator waving a hat). There is just enough information here to prime kids for a first trip to the rodeo or appease those with a passion for everything Western.
