Little Buckaroo and Lou

One, Two, Saddle up Lou. Little Buckaroo saddles up for a great day with horsey companion, Lou. But it will take more than a cowboy hat and spiffy red boots to get them on their way. Written to the nursery rhyme of "One, Two, Buckle My Shoe," this perfect book for little cowpokes combines counting and a bit of barnyard antics. And at the end, Buckaroo and Lou make a new friend. Back matter includes a fun activity identifying cowpoke "accoutrements." From Jennifer Sattler, the award-winning artist of One Red Sock, Dirty Birdies, and Oink-Oink! Moo! Cock-a-Doodle-Doo!

Kirkus Reviews - Little Buckaroo and Lou

“Written in the style of the nursery rhyme “One, Two, Buckle My Shoe,” the story counts up alongside simple storytelling… Gentle art gives characters a rounded, roly-poly look set against a big open sky.”

School Library Journal - Little Buckaroo and Lou

“Little Buckaroo saddles trusty horse Lou for a ride to the beat of a fresh take on the nursery rhyme “One, Two, Buckle My Shoe.” As a counting book with affable, roly-poly style, young readers can easily practice one-to-one correspondence and cardinal counting with horseback riding items in isolated page spaces. A charming, confidence-building romp.”
