Kylie Jean Rodeo Queen
by M. Pescke
Picture Window Books
Kylie’s Grandma is the Rodeo Queen, the champion, of barrel racing and Kylie wants to be Rodeo Queen, too. The problems are that she doesn’t have a horse or know how to race. But her Grandfather gives her a horse, Star because of the mark on its head, and her Granny decides to teach her to barrel race. She teaches Kylie how to ride Star around the barrels in a circle. A very interesting part of the story is the day before the race Kylie is practicing with her horse when she fell off her horse. Kylie becomes worried that Star would buck her again in the big race. In the end Kylie does win the race in 12 seconds and becomes the Rodeo Queen!
The moral of the story is that even if you are really bad at something at first if you keep practicing at it every day you can get really good.
There are no bad words or bad attitudes in the book. It is for kids like me – kids 8 and up. The words weren’t hard, it was easy for me. I think that most of my friends would really like this book. On a scale of one to 10, this book is a 10! It was amazing! I liked it because it tells you that you can be whoever you want to be and do anything you want to… but in a great way.
