cavecreekkidAGES 3-5: Are you ready for a rootin’-tootin’ good time? Then mosey on over and dive into The Cave Creek Kid. This is a terrific story detailing the importance of responsibility to ourselves, to others and to the world, all in couplet form.

The pattern and cadence of The Cave Creek Kid allow for a wonderful read aloud, complete with a Western flair. With pictorial vocabulary, the author stresses how one can balance responsibility with adventure. In the end, knee-slappin’ fun will be had by all! —Angela Guidi
