COWBOY JOSE AND PINTEROO is a beautifully written and wonderfully illustrated children's book. It is an educational reading experience for both English and Spanish speaking children. In an adventurous and fun-filled fashion, the book helps to teach one important lesson --- we can be friends with someone who is different from ourselves. THE BOOK INCLUDES both a fully illustrated English and Spanish version under the same cover. With a simple 180 degree flip, the child can move from one version of the story to the other. This presents a unique and fun learning experience in multiple dimensions. The book is written for young boys and girls from age 5 through 9. THE STORY OF COWBOY JOSE AND PINTEROO'S PAIRING and rodeo adventure is geographically grounded in the Sonoran Desert of North American. This visually magnificent area spans large parts of the Southwestern United States in Arizona and California, and of Northwestern Mexico in Sonora, Baja California and Baja California Sur. The vibrant colored pencil illustrations distinctively bring to life each exciting scene. THIS UNIQUE AND COLORFUL BOOK IS DESIGNED to allow young children to use their imagination and enjoy the places that reading can take them. The book includes a "Spy Me" page as well as coloring pages to engage both the child and the parent in fun-filled learning activities. THE AUTHOR, ANN ANOVITZ, lives in Tucson, Arizona.

Great Story, Beautiful Illustrations and Wonderful Message. I purchased a hardcover version of this book for my six year old granddaughter a few weeks ago. Now, every time my wife and I visit my daughter and her family, we cannot leave without reading the story of Cowboy Jose and Pinteroo. The school that our granddaughter attends has a student body where over half of the students speak English as a second language. She takes the book to school with her of Friday’s and she enjoys sharing the story during the open book reading session with you Spanish speaking friends. What a great idea to have both versions of the story in one book. I have already placed an order of some more books that I will donate to her school. I certainly would recommend this book for children, parents and Grandparents.
