Let's Sing a Lullaby With the Brave Cowboy
I love Jan Thomas’ silly, charming books with her bold, colorful comic-style illustrations, from Rhyming Dust Bunnies to Is Everyone Ready for Fun? Let’s Sing a Lullaby with the Brave Cowboy is her latest to date, and in my opinion, another hit. The cowboy of the title is actually not so brave; in his attempts to settle his cows down for the night, he interrupts his own lullaby with startled exclamations about what he imagines is lurking in the dark. The cows calm and reassure him--until, that is, something really IS in the shadows! What is it? And does it like lullabies? Find out!
Easily acted out, this comedy sketch of a story makes a great read-aloud for one or more readers; good for bedtime, storytime, or anytime. For those who love to sing as well as read and laugh, you can listen to and learn the Brave Cowboy’s Lullaby at JanThomasBooks.com Or make up your own tune, partners!
