The Wild West. September Poppins Book Nook Introduction.

The Wild West is the theme of the month for the Poppins Book Nook, an awesome virtual book club that goes live the last Monday of each month. Please, check us back on September 29 to see how we explore the Wild West hands-on with the littlest ones.

This theme is wild and exciting. We went through piles of cowboy books to find the easy read for preschoolers.


Yippee! Yay! can be heard in our house quite often these days. We had hard time choosing the best of the best. Here are some of our finds:
  • "I want to be a Cowboy" is a simple book of photographs that explain the details of cowboys and cowgirls' life.
  • "Cowboy Small" by Lois Lenski. Small and Cactus are best friends. Yes, you guessed right: Cactus is the horse's name.
  • "Cowboy Ned & Andy" by David Ezra Stein. Andy takes such a good care of his friend.
  • "Giddy up, Li'l Buckaroos!" by Mark Iacolina. It's a board book to introduce the new vocabulary with fun pictures.
  • "Dusty Locks and The Three Bears" by Susan Lowell. The author retells the famous stories with the Wild West flare.

I hope you enjoy following a group of these wonderful bloggers - hosts of the Poppins Book  Nook!
