Hilarious and funny and cute, if cowboys can be cute. The story of 2 very different looking cowboys who lose their only cow and put their identity at risk. Can they still be cowboys without a cow? Only one solution is to find the cow! Great read-aloud book.

This was a really cute book! It was a great book that showed how different people can be. There is such a big variety of physical features that people can have, and it is important that we are proud of ourselves. I would highly recommend this book to read and you can explain how students should embrace their differences!

This was a lot of fun to read. It's also a good book for trying to get across the difference between young and short, old and big, etc. since young kids seem to persume that if you are taller or bigger than someone, you must be older.

A fun story about a big young guy with a little beard and a little old guy with a big beard. Kids love to say beans whenever these loveable cowboys eat.

Beautifully illustrated watercolors and black outline tell the tale of the love of a young and old man for each other and their milk cow. Beginning readers might enjoy reading it to a parent.
