Eve’s Book Review
The artwork is very cute and appealing to the age group this book was written for – ages 3 to 5. The story line is useful as well in helping children to deal with understanding having to wait for things. The language is simple as well aiding in the understanding of a child listening to the story.
All in all, I recommend this book to parents.
About the Reviewer, Eve Culley
Story-telling is as much a part of me as breathing is to my body. I have found that I have to tell stories, put them on paper to make room for the other stories that are building and will need to be told soon.
So, enjoy the ride. Stripe, the Sheriff, and even Rooster Cogburn have a lot of fun they want to share with you.
