A COWGIRL AND HER HORSE, written and illustrated by Jean Ekman Adams, is a delightful picture book about a girl and her horse, their friendship and adventures.
Young readers will have fun with this book while stretching their imaginations, especially if they like horses, dogs and outlandish, zany art.
Taking care of a horse is a big job – you might have to share your backyard pool for cooling-off time or your dinnertime veggies if you horse is still hungry (and “eating like a horse!”). You might even have to shop and shop and shop for new horse shoes. This book is out of the ordinary and over the rainbow with enchantment and giggles. It gives a charming portrayal of the friendship between child and horse that will be enjoyed by any child who has a beloved pet.
