Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 2-Cowboys Dwight, Darryl, and Dub are lamenting the fact that "Santy Claus" won't be able to find them out on the range. As each cowhand recalls a fond memory from Christmases past, their trusty cook "Cookie" doles out advice on what they can do now to get in the spirit. They decorate a cactus, char some cookies, and make costumes for the cows. Feeling low-down and forgotten on Christmas day, they are surprised back at camp by Santa himself. After an evening of food, presents, and making merry, Santa disappears into the night-and Cookie soon gallops back into camp, the unsuspecting cowboys none the wiser. The lively cartoonlike illustrations go hand-in-hand with the text and will entertain and amuse young readers in the mood for a Western-style Christmas.-Madeline J.

This book is a joy to read. The characters are great fun and being from Texas, I can relate to the artwork and characters themselves. I've got a lil cowboy and cowgirl that are sure to fall in love with this story. The cowboys and cookie are just fun and entertaining in their own way.

If you've got a little cowpoke at your house this Christmas, then you'd better lasso a copy of Rob Sander's "Cowboy Christmas"! It's sure to delight, and (in my opinion) could easily replace "The Night Before Christmas" as their new holiday favorite!

This debut author makes every word count, and doesn't miss a beat while taking us out on the range in this warm, yet comical tale of friendship, hope, and holiday spirit. I'm looking forward to more stories about the boy's and their adventures, and I sincerely hope that Random House (or some other publisher) will pick up this pony and run with it!

Kudo's to illustrator, John Manders, for his endearing depiction of the three partners (and their little dog too!), and who could EVER forget Dub's "reindeers"...PRICELESS.

"Cowboy Christmas" is a must have for the holiday season, and this reviewer will be circling the wagons, waiting to see what Mr. Sander's pulls out of his bag next...DARN TOOTIN"!!

I bought this for my son's classroom, his teacher has a cowboy theme. At their holiday parties we read a themed book and one of the children can win it and take it home. The kids were super excited about this one, they loved it.

Cowboy Christmas has quickly become a "fan favorite" in our house. My 4 year old daughter really enjoys this book. It's definitely one to appeal to both boys and girls. Looking forward to more fun stories from Sanders.

Even though it currently is not in season, Cowboy Christmas is well worth the read anytime. Rob Sanders is expert with words, using some that will broaden a child’s vocabulary while enhancing the story. He has written such a cute twist on the idea of preparing for Christmas when things are not the same as one is used to having available.

Three days before Christmas four cowboys are in the desert – three are taking care of a herd of longhorn cattle and the fourth is the fatherly cook. The three worry that “Santy” won’t find them way out in the desert. They individually lament over being without a Christmas tree with decorations, yummy Christmas cookies to eat, and horses to dress up as reindeer to hitch to a wagon. Cookie (the cook) quietly convinces each that they can do that, and each makes the attempt – with hilarious results. For example, did you ever see a cactus Christmas tree with cans of corn hanging from it in lieu of popcorn? Rob Sanders wrote: Dub corralled cans of corn. “No corn popper,” he explained.

The surprise ending (for the young reader) is satisfying and yet leaves the reader imagining what is coming next beyond the end of the story. The illustrations by John Manders are colourful, funny, and well-matched to the story, adding great visuals to the descriptive words.

Visit Rob Sanders’ very informative website ([...]) and check out the trailer for Cowboy Christmas, a book you may want to buy now for a young reader for Christmas – or anytime.

My 6 year old grandson loves to play with his Playmobile cowboys & western accessories, I already gave him this book and his mom read it to him last night and they both loved the story. Was so tickled to find a cowboy Christmas story, I love that Amazon gives you other ideas to buy based on things you have bought. I have discovered some delightful books because of this

Our girls love having this book read to them at bedtime. They howl with laughter when I try to use my "cowboy" voice for the characters. I am glad to have this in our Christmas reading list. I hope these Cowboys will have more adventures in the future. This is a very sweet book!
