Every Cowgirl Needs Dancing Boots

Remember when I showed you my new favorite book, Every Cowgirl Needs a Horse? well, I ordered this little gem of a book at the same time and LOVE IT!! 


It is about the same little girl who is stuck living in the suburbs with her two wheeled horse (her bike).  She gets a new pair of cowgirl boots and tries to make friends with her tutu wearing and ballerina dancing new neighbors "the glitter girls."  So, she sets out to have a barn dance in her barn (aka her garage) and ends up making quite the mess!  But, in the end she has a new friend AND dancing boots ... what more could a girl need?

While this book doesn't have as much of the ranch vocabulary as Every Cowgirl Needs a Horse it still has the country sass that makes it a joy to read.  This book can be used to teach writing also - the voice and word choice are both amazing! 

There is another Every Cowgirl ... book coming out in late May and I look forward to adding that book to my growing ag book collection. 

Do you have this book?  What is your favorite ag book?

Love children's books. I use to collect them. Too many favorites to start naming them.

My girls have checked this book out from the library! And we have the horse book of it at home. Both are FABULOUS stories. I love the book "If You're Not From the prairie..." It's Canadian written but very similar to where we live. You need it and I'll have to send you a copy!
