H. C. And Lucille Holling. Near Fine. No Jacket. 11" NOT an ex library book. Orange cloth covered book has 126 clean interior pages with color illustrations. Front of dust jacket and endflap are laid in.
Let me tell you how wonderful it is to be 10, 11, 12 again. When I saw that it was available, I had to have it.
This book, which for some reason I remembered as "Cowboys, Cowboys, Cowboys", follows the visit of 2 youngsters to their (?) uncle's ranch. They learn what cowboys really do, and how hard the work is.
This is definitely an old-fashioned book: illustrations very clear and interesting but not Jan Brett or Jerry Pinkney: simple. Multi-color, but in blocs.
I remembered being drawn in to the story as the children were induced to think, consider, test themselves. It happened again. I was there with them.
I recommend it for children who have a good reading ability. I was much less sophisticated at 12 than today's 3d and 4th graders, but I'm sure that an adventurous child of any age would enjoy this book
