Howdy, pardner! When you think of the Wild West, what comes to mind? Cowboys? Cowgirls? Stagecoaches? Indians? Bandits? I’m sure we can all come up with great images in our minds, and I know I have always enjoyed reading about things that happened in the Old West. Our theme for this month of Poppins Book Nook was the Wild West and our contributors sure had a rip roarin’ yippee ki-yay time sharing it with their children through books and activities.
Our wild west adventures this month led to us stories about a cowgirl Cinderella, Grizz the toughest cowboy, Gingerbread Cowboys, Little House on the Prairie and much much more! Enjoy checking out these great books and make sure you visit our contributors and remember to *pin* the things you want to remember!
