"Hot On The Range" Children's Book Review and Giveaway!

I love reading with my children, and I have been since Alex was a baby. I firmly believe in not pushing anything onto kids- food, reading, potty training, and that when they want it- they will crave it. We reached a point in time where they both went through a phase where they did not want to read, they did not want me to read to them- they were over it.

For Alex it lasted about 5 months, with Abbie it was going on about 4 months, and would only read this small board book about horses until we got the book, "Hot on the Range", by R.D. Jentsch.

Abbigaile LOVES "horsies". LOVES horsies. When we received the book, she was so excited.

"MY Horsie book, mommy?? Iz for ME! I looove horsies, mommy. I read mine book, mommy?"

She sat on the recliner and flipped through the pages carefully, while intently examining the horses and barnyard animals illustrated throughout the pages. She got through "reading" the book and asked, "Say the words to me, Mommy?"

I sat down with her and read the book, cover to cover, twice. The story itself is super cute and tells about a very hot day on a Texas farm and how a beautiful painted horse named Chester, tries to stay cool.

While visiting the other animals in the barnyard, each animal and their personalities shine through their conversation with Chester, and their solution to the heat. Thankfully, Chester finds the perfect way to get cool, before he returns to his friend whom he left in the beginning, under a shaded tree.

R.D. Jentsch is a very talented author that strives to help young or aspiring authors meet their dreams. She writes for her nieces and her experience with children (and horses!) shine through her writing. The end of this August, expect the second new release from R.D. Jentsch, called "Froggy and Friends Go to the Creek".

Thank you for the lovely post.

I have one year old daughter who is very bright for her age and she insists that I read to her every night. At this rate I have run out of books to read to her. Can you tell me a good place to buy story books for children?
