Cowgirl Kate and Cocoa: Partners

by Erica Silverman
Illustrated by Betsy Lewin

Published by Harcourt, 2006
42 pages
ISBN: 0152021256

Ages 4-7

Back in their second book, Cowgirl Kate and her horse, Cocoa, continue to show they excel at friendship, while author Erica Silverman shows she excels at creating wonderful books for new readers. In four chapters, each a separate story, the personalities of Silverman’s two main characters shine. The humorous interplay between Kate and Cocoa reveals the best kind of camaraderie: they sometimes tease or trick, but ultimately challenge and support one another. Betsy Lewin has captured the playful, stubborn, and sweet sides of both girl and horse in her fine illustrations that support the well-crafted text in this engaging, accessible treat for beginning readers.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
