Let’s Sing a Lullaby with the Brave Cowboy written and illustrated by Jan Thomas Beach Lane, 2012. The Brave Cowboy loves to sing lullabies for his friends, but finds it hard to be as brave as his name suggests. This picture book will appeal to a wide range of young readers, and makes a great storytime choice, offering a singalong opportunity in addition to its satisfyingly silly story. (Preschool – Kindergarten)

I Want To Be A Cowgirl by Jeanne Willis

Top 10 Cowgirl Picture Books
Meet a city girl with a big Wild West dream.
I Want to be a Cowgirl by Jeanne Willis is a story about a little city girl who doesn’t want to grow up to have tea parties. cook, clean or sew. She doesn’t want to be a girly girl at all, she wants to be a cowgirl. I love the sentiment in this book, how adamant she is about knowing what she wants and the lengths she goes to be a cowgirl using bananas as six shooters, and turning her dad’s rug into chaps! I like the message about following your own dreams not what society tells us we should be,
