From the Inside Flap

[Front Flap] "Continuing her singsong journeys, Peck takes readers on a jaunty pony ride 'way out West.' Cowpokes ride the trail and get up close with a variety of regional animals before safely returning home. The rich mixture of imagination, real animals, and exuberant rhyming make this a solid choice for story time or anytime." -Jeanette Larson, children's literature consultant "Jan Peck brings the West to life for children with rhythmic and enchanting lyrics about horny toads, prairie dogs, armadillos, jackrabbits, roadrunners, longhorns, and buffalo." -Glenn Dromgoole, author of Good Night Cowboy and Good Night Cowgirl "The prose is charming and sparkling with animation. It will ignite children's imaginations." -Debbie Raindl, children's services, John Ed Keeter Public Library, Saginaw, Texas "This addition to Peck's collection is a natural for a rowdy prairie-themed story time." -Sharon M. Lawler, librarian, Universal City, Texas Children mosey down a Western trail in this adorable rhyming story. As Jan Peck introduces a variety of Western critters to her young readers in this fun and lighthearted adventure, racing roadrunners, stinky skunks, and digging armadillos come out to play. Herb Leonhard's fantastical illustrations bring to life the rugged landscape of the West as it is explored through a cowgirl's imagination.

Format: Hardcover
"Way Out West on My Little Pony" is a colorful western ridescape for a little girl and her pony, encountering many western creatures including a prairie dog, a raccoon, a roadrunner, an armadillo, and even a rattlesnake! Children will love the spunky heroine and her pony as she cheerily greets each creature appropriately, then rides on to the next encounter. Fabulous colorful illustrations dramatize both the Western setting(s) and the girl's encounters with a variety of natural fauna. At the end of the ride, the girl returns home to Grandpa, telling him of her ride out West on her pony (which has transformed from a full-size palomino to a toy hobby horse in profile)." "Way Out West on My Little Pony" is a wonderful exercise in imagination and natural observation for children.

We checked this out from the library & my children loved it so much we had to order a copy. They have started to recite it, and they act it out on their stick horses. Great book.
