Conrad And The Cowgirl Next Door Book Review

I always have the greatest time reading a brand new book with my six year old. He gets so excited whenever he has something new to read. The last book that him and I spent time reading together was Conrad and The Cowgirl Next Door.


Title: Conrad And The Cowgirl Next Door (The Next Door Series)
Author: Denette Fretz
Genre: Children's Fiction


Conrad is a new to being a cowboy. When he decides to spend a summer vacation at his Uncle Clint's ranch for some ultimate cowboy training, he quickly figures out that being a real cowboy is a lot harder than it seems. Then he meets the cute little cowgirl next door, Imogene who makes being a cowgirl seem so easy, for herself, at least. Conrad is trying his best to be the perfect cowboy but he can't seem to get it right and it just so happens that Imogene is always around to see him fail.
I thought this story was really cute for young kids like my son. He thought so many of the scenes were hilarious and had a new question for every page. He really got into the book.
What I like most about the book was how it ended, but I won't say much about that! I don't want to ruin it. I will say, however, that is a good ending with a lesson to learn, which is good for kids to understand. I love books that teach good lessons to kids!
This book is an excellent book for young readers, with an easy vocabulary, even for most beginners. My son was able to get through the entire book on his own with no problem and he's six.
It's a very entertaining book and the illustrations are adorable, unique, and colorful. There are a lot of funny scenes and my son loved it.
Also, there are a few extra pages of fun at the end, after the story, that most kids will enjoy as well.
I do recommend this book, because it is family/kid friendly and enjoyable for all.
