Beginning readers will enjoy the sweet relationship between Cowgirl Kate and her beloved horse, Cocoa, in Cowgirl Kate and Cocoa by Erica Silverman.
Each short chapter tells about an interaction between the two of them, some more mundane than others.
But all made exceptionally delightful by colorful watercolors by Betty Lewin (Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type).
And if your family enjoys Cowgirl Kate and Cocoa as much as we did, you’ll be pleased to know Silverman has written several more in the series.
Recommended for ages 4 – 8, depending on reading ability.
