Conrad and the Cowgirl Next Door

My Thoughts:
I absolutely adored this story. It was cute and funny, but there was a deeper meaning in the whole story. Love your enemies, be kind to those who are not kind to you. I love how Uncle Clint put it, "be nice to your enemies it messes with their heads." If ever there was a name you could relate to "greenhorn" Conrad would be it. But he kept trying, there are so many good things about this book to encourage kids, keep trying, be nice to others, and always be prepared. Gotta love that Mega Unltimate Extreme First Aid Kit. Definitely 5 stars from this reviewer. Loved the artwork, and the story!!

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.
