In A Day At The Pee Wee Rodeo: A Western Rodeo Adventure for Kids Ages 4-8 (Rocking Horse Rodeo), M D Ford introduces us to a cowgirl named Dee and her horse Hank. Today was a very special and fun day because the Pee Wee Rodeo was being held and Dee would be helping with the events along with Hank. Arriving at the rodeo, Hank and Dee are excited to be involved and the first game they are assisting in is the egg race. Dee remembers when she was a participant herself and won her first trophy. She also loved watching the kids trying to catch chickens during the chicken race and then the stick horse race. It was different for Dee to be watching and helping instead of taking part. She felt honored to help out and did the best she could to make sure the younger children had a fun and memorable time. After a long day at the rodeo, Dee and Hank were tired but happy to have been a part of this special day.

I thought that A Day At The Pee Wee Rodeo was an amusing and imaginative read. Being someone who grew up in a city and had never been to a rodeo before in my life, it was a learning experience for me when reading about things that happen at rodeos. We have a little girl who is excited about changing roles in that particular environment from being someone who participated in the rodeo to someone who is now older and able to help out. I can relate to coming back to assist younger children as I went to summer camp for years and then when I was sixteen and seventeen, I became a junior counselor. It’s kind of the same aspect. I also really enjoyed the illustrations. They were colorful and stood out, making them amazing visual aids for the young reader. M D Ford has done a great job with this book and I can’t wait to read more in the future.
