Fast Five Friday: Favorite Cowboy Books

So it's been Rodeo Time here where I live. These are my favorite cowboy themed books. The reviews are terrible because apparently I have never put any of them on Goodreads. Is that padding this year's numbers to mark them now?

Bubba, The Cowboy PrinceBubba, The Cowboy Prince by Helen Ketteman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

How did I not have this one on here yet? Only my favorite rodeo time read. Stereotypical "drawl" is the only accent I can do.

The Gingerbread CowboyThe Gingerbread Cowboy by Janet Squires
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Maybe three and a half. I like this one a lot. Just not quite as much as Bubba. Could be the kids have fun looking for the Gingerbread Man as he runs around. Could be they like the cowboys. Could be they see familiarity with the landscape. I don't know. We enjoy it!

Buster Goes to Cowboy CampBuster Goes to Cowboy Camp by Denise Fleming
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Why did I not have any of our rodeo reads posted here? A must!

The Three Little JavelinasThe Three Little Javelinas by Susan Lowell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

OK, so this one isn't really cowboy-ish. But they are dressed in a western style, are they not? And this is a FUN retelling!

Sock Monkey Rides AgainSock Monkey Rides Again by Cece Bell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This one's silly and the kids don't "get" all the jokes. But they love Sock Monkey anyway, and the grown ups reading the story get their own laughs in.
