Conrad and the Cowgirl Next Door by Denette Fretz

Book Description

“I hear that becoming a cowboy can be dangerous. Especially if you don't know the rules.
I don’t know the rules.”
It’s a good thing Conrad brought his Mega Ultimate Extreme First Aid Kit to Uncle Clint’s ranch because learning how to be a cowboy turns out to be a lot harder—and more painful—than he thought. Conrad has a lot to learn – including don’t squat with spurs on and never wave your red sweatshirt at a bull. But the biggest challenge of all is dealing with Imogene Louise Lathrup, the know-it-all-cowgirl next door. When Imogene shows up, she is all too happy to point out Conrad’s shortcomings. In this follow-up to their debut hit Pirates on the Farm, author Denette Fretz and illustrator Gene Barretta team up once again to tell a humorous tale about what it means to love your neighbor.

Conrad and the Cowgirl Next Door is a cute book that younger children 3-7 will enjoy.  It's fun book with many funny happenings.  The lesson getting along with others is a great lesson for younger ones and what better way to learn it than through reading how others do it.  The illustrations are bright colorful, and bring the story to life for the kids.  You'll laugh and have fun while reading this story, but there is also a lesson to be learned along the way.  At the back of the book there are cowboy poems and a page to the parents to use in starting discussions about the book, a very excellent tool.
