Home on the Range

"Home on the Range" by Brian Ajhar

Do you remember this song?

"Oh give me a home where the buffalo roam. Where the deer and antelope play. Where seldom is heard, a discouraging word, and the skies are not cloudy all day."

This book provides the words to this classic song along with illustrations of a young boy who sees stars in the night time sky in the shape of a cowboy hat. Intrigued, the boy rides his toy rocking horse into the sky to catch the hat. The wind carries the hat through the cow pastures and lands on top of a cows horn.

Will the boy every get a hold of that hat? And will he ever go back to sleep, or was he asleep and dreaming the whole time?

This is a fun book if you're looking for a song book to sing along with your child or if you are doing a western theme. You could also use it as a bedtime story.
