2021 Congratulations to author Janet Squires on the 15th Anniversary of her popular children's book The Gingerbread Cowboy!
From School Library Journal: "PreSchool-Grade 3-A delightful, infectiously cheeryful, Southwestern rendition of a familiar story. Phrases used to describe biscuits, such as plump pillows, soft as clouds, and tasty as a big Texas barbecue, just roll off the tongue. Bow-legged and dressed in a vest, boots, hat, and a big belt buckle, the Gingerbread Cowboy teases: "Giddyup, giddyup as fast as you can. You can't catch me, I'm the Gingerbread Man" and includes an added refrain, and "raced away as fast as his boots could carry him". The lively text demands to be read aloud.
