This was an ok book from my point of view. The illustrations were amazing they really kept my attention. However, the writing was nothing too spectacular. The story of Pecos Bill is one of adventure and I just didn't feel like this version of the story captured the really adventure of the legend. This book sends the message of standing up for yourself and never giving up on your dream. I think it did a good job of getting the message across and my second graders knew what the message was as soon as a closed the book.
This book while being cute is too myth based to show to students because it could confuse them. The books characters are similar to other books Kellogg has done so that takes away from its originality. The idea of teaching students about Texas history through a book that includes tall tales does not make sense. Students should be taught facts when learning history, and this book does not do this.
It is a fictional story of Pecos Bill that is told by Randy Rogers and the Sons of the Pioneers. It begins with an infant falling out of a covered wagon and discovered by wolves. He becomes one of their kind and grows up with survival skills then becomes a he-man of the American Desert. He discovers how to round up cattle and tame horses. He makes a friendship with a horse that rescues him. He then falls in love with a lady named Slue Foot Sue. Finally, he runs back into his family and ends up living in Texas where he started out to begin with.Read more ›
Pecos Bill takes place in Texas after he falls off the wagon. One thing I liked that the author did was make it a fast pace book and not run on. The problem was mainly that the texans were looking to get the cattle out of the way of their town. The best audience for this book are yong kids mostly boys. The author leaves the reading level basic and doesnt usse and confusing words. Steven Kellogg did a great job writing Pecos Bill
