Great little book to help teach children how to use their imaginations.

Bought this for my cowboy loving 3 year old grandson and he has his mommy and daddy read it over and over.

We love that the illustrations emphasize the little boys' daydreams and encourage imagination.

Anglund's children are irresistible in any book, but this one shows how a three or four-year-old can use his imagination to become a brave cowboy
in the old West. Reality is shown in black ink
sketches; the imagined scene is in red.I gave
this as a baby gift(for boy babies)many times
until it went out of print and would love to
see it brought back.

This book was read to me as a child, so I bought it for my son. While it still held its charm I noticed it was not exactly the original. This 2000 re-print bowed to the alter of political correctness and removed the references to Indians. The two "changed" pictures are a distinctly different quality as well.

(In the original, he doesn't hunt bank robbers... and his "dream" is different...)

This book was my son's favorite book when he was a toddler and into his early school years. In the early 80's he and his Dad would go to the library and repeatedly sign out this book so his Dad could read it to him. He wasn't much more than three and probably had the book memorized. I think this book expanded his imagination and creativity and helped his thinking processes. I have bought copies more recently as gifts for other little boys, hoping they love it just as much. When my son was in college, I found a first edition copy that looked just like the book they had read together. My son gave it to his Dad for Father's Day and it was such an emotional moment. It brought back those special moments from years ago. Today it sits in a place of honor in our bookcase, waiting to be read to a future grandson, when it will be given back to our son to share anew as the reader.

I have the 1959 first edition, and it has seen better days. It was read nearly every day and now my children love it too! It is 19 pages and a joy to read. All about a little boy that pretends he's a cowboy. Just a sweet story by a beloved author and illustrator.

I gave this as a Christmas present to some of our nephews. They love it. I was enchanted by text and drawings.

My two-and-a half year old grandson absolutely loves this book. His mom and him read this every evening and discuss it. I recommend this book to any "little cowboy."

Great little book to help teach children how to use their imaginations. I think video games have taken this away from children.
