A Theodor Seuss Geisel Award Honor Book Hold on to your hats! Two new pals have arrived on the scene: Cowgirl Kate and her stubborn, but devoted cowhorse, Cocoa. Together they count the herd, ride the range, and, of course, argue till the cows come home—as only best friends can do.
With its spirited text and bright, humorous illustrations by Caldecott Honor recipient Betsy Lewin, this first book in the Cowgirl Kate and Cocoa series is bound to be a hit with young wranglers everywhere. This title has been selected as a Common Core Text Exemplar (Grades 2-3, Stories)
Erica Silverman is the author of many picture books and early readers, including the perennial preschool favorite Big Pumpkin, the award winning Cowgirl Kate and Cocoa series and the recently released, Jack (Not Jackie). Childhood visits to the library fed her lifelong passion for books, reading and writing. When she is not writing, she is working as a librarian. When she is not at the library, she is writing. Or reading. Or playing with her dog and cats. And eating chocolate.
