I Want To Be A Cowgirl by Jeanne Willis
Cowgirl Pictures, Jeanne Willis, Tony Ross, Girls Generation, Cities Girls, Pictures Books, I'M, Children Books, Teas Parties
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,
