I love reading and reviewing children’s books, so I was excited to receive Conrad and the Girl Next Door for just such a purpose.
This book tells the tale of a little boy who is becoming a cowboy, and all that that entails.
I’m not a huge fan of the pictures, myself.
How strong is the book?
This is a sturdy, jacketed hardcover.
Who the book is for:
This book says that it is for ages four through eight, and I think that is appropriate.
What I liked:
The story is interesting and different.
Has a bit of a lesson.
What I didn’t like:
I found the story a little too detailed to keep the interests of kids.
I felt the message could have been more clear.
I think kids will grow bored with the story.
Overall, I’m not a big fan of this book.
I give Conrad and the Cowgirl Next Door 3 out of 5 stars.
I received this book free to review from Book Look. The opinions expressed in this review are my true thoughts and feeling regarding this book. I am disclosing this information in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
