Book Review: Rodeo Queen by Marci Peschke

Rodeo Queen (Kylie Jean)

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.
