Synopsis (from Goodreads): When the rodeo comes to town, Kylie Jean decides she wants to be the Rodeo Queen! But to do that, she must learn rodeo tricks.
My Thoughts: My daughter and I have never read any other Kylie Jean books before. Now I have a list of all the ones my daughter wants to read. She loved this one! I mean, what 6 year old girl wouldn't like a book with pink and glitter on the front right?
This was a great beginning chapter book. My 6 year old is an advanced reader so she was able to read this one very easily but she enjoyed every minute of it!
The story was a cute, fun story. Kylie Jean is sassy and funny and her dog has a great name...Ugly Brother! My daughter laughed everytime she read the dog's name.
As a parent, I liked that the book dealt with some let downs and how to handle them as well as some uplifting moments. I also liked how it was about following your dreams and not giving up despite different setbacks. I also liked the discussions questions in the back. I was able to make sure my daughter actually comprehended what she read (when she read it by herself).
The illustrations were also fun and quirky! I enjoyed them as well as my daughter. This book is perfect for little girls that are beginning to read chapter books.
