This is a really great book. I love the rhythm, and the language choices, and I love Bo's adventurous attitude!As always with Brett, be sure to check out the signature pictures on the sides of the pages that show what Bo's mama is doing as he has fun.I will note that this book is very interesting to my NYC nieces. If we only read books about people who live like us and do like us our reading options (and our horizons) would be very limited indeed. Bo in this book is myopic, but he likes to learn new things anyway!

A mother armadillo takes her four boys to dig in the hill country. Bo was the one who was easily distracted and mother armadillo tries to keep a close eye on him. Yet Bo wanders off, following a lizard to a creek. There he finds a little girl wearing shiny high heeled red boots who was trying to scuff her boots before the rodeo. After getting her boots muddy she yelled, " look at me". Bo saw the shiny red boots and followed it. In the meantime his mother was looking for him. After the little girl rode her pony, Bo followed her boots to the Bar- B- Q. After their meal the cowhands started a little dancing and Bo followed his friend. As the little girl kicked her feet Bo was thrown in the air. By the time he landed the girl had gone to the campfire and kicked off her shiny red boots. Bo went near the boots and introduced himself to it, but the boots just fell and Bo realised he had mistaken the boots for an armadillo. I can relate to this book since every year at the end of October the school my children attend have 'western day' and they dress up in western clothes. Extension 1. Talk to children about family and how parents take care of children. 2. i would have the children paint either the boots or the armadillo and write why they liked it.

Charming book about little Bo the armadillo, who thinks a pair of boots are his friend.

Once again, a Jan Breet story is adorable. I collect her books and find each one enjoyable.
