..::Book Review::.. Conrad and the Cowgirl Next Door - Children's Book

My Review of Conrad and the Cowgirl Next Door by Denette Fretz 


"In this follow-up to their debut hit Pirates on the Farm, author Denette Fretz and illustrator Gene Barretta team up once again to tell a humorous tale about what it means to love your neighbor."

Here are some pictures of the book:

My Personal Review

As the second book in The Next Door Series, author Denette Fretz gives your children a quick look into the 'real world' and how to deal with the annoying 'know-it-alls' that we all seem to come across every now and then.

This book is written for children ages 4-8.  My son is 6, and he was very excited to read this book with us (he loves books!).

What I liked about the book is it sparked Charlie's interest immediately with the pictures.  He really liked them and thought they were hilarious.  

Kids' books usually have a moral component, so I was looking for it.  Then BAM! it hit me in the face.  The moral of this story is that you need to 'love your neighbor' no matter what.  In this case, Conrad helped Imogene after she fell even though she has been rude to him the entire book.

The characters are funny and are able to be related to for a young child (especially school-aged).  

It was a little long, so if your children can't sit still for a longer book, then this isn't the book for you.  

This is a hardcover book that can put up with a lot of wear.
