Time travel-- backward
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
