The Super Cowboys book Giveaway (ends 2/19)

The Super Cowboys Giveaway Hosted by Mommy Lesson Plans

Photobucket

Meet six-year-old Tommy Johnson, Super Cowboy and Super Story-teller. In SUPER COWBOY RIDES, Daris Howard captures boyhood in rural America, as seen through the eyes of his precocious, adventurous narrator.

Want to build a box to capture wild cats that roam the farm? How about tips on catching a greased pig at the fair, or teaching a stubborn lamb to avoid being trampled by angry milk cows?

From the first paragraph, when Tommy explains why a boy needs a dog for a pet instead of a cat, he wins us over with his down-to-earth and humorous view of the world.

But once Tommy begins school, things get complicated. He cannot learn to read. He gets put in the lowest reading group and told to stay in the back of the classroom coloring. He gets picked on by teachers and mocked by classmates. And when tragedy strikes to shatter his idyllic world even further, Tommy must carry a burden far beyond what any first-grader should have to face. In the process of dealing with his grief, Tommy learns the meaning of true friendship.

  1. It looks like a very good read!

  2. I would like to keep the book for myself then give to my kids.

  3. Because we have a six yr old that thinks this way–

  4. for myself then my cowboy–Jesse

  5. As the mother of two children with learning problems and friends with other parents and children in the same situation, I can relate to this little boy. I have known too many teachers like the one he had. When I worked as a children’s librarian, this is a book I would have ordered as soon as I heard about it. It is important to have children and parents put themselves in someone else’s place and see what their life is like. A story like this a good way to do it.

  6. I would be sharing it with my grandchildren, one of whom is dyslexic. I would also be able to share it with the librarians from several libraries to encourage them to order it.
