Dialogue is the driving force in this book. Lucky Kidd is having a conversation with Curly Kidd, the dad, before he goes to ride on the meanest bull in the USA, Dynamite.

I looked this book because a man rode a bull and survived. I liked the book because it had a lot of action. I liked the book because of the bull. The book had a surprise ending. It was like a rodeo. The bull rider rode the meanest bull in the USA. It had a lot of information. This book is very sensitive.
This is a fun book especially if the reader changes their voice to match that of a cowboy. I liked this book a lot because it keeps the children engaged and can teach them internal dialogue. Also, this book can teach them about surprise endings. I recommend this for a read aloud.

This book is great for teaching monologue and surprise endings. It is really entertaining and pretty funny. Using different voices for the dad and the kid will keep the kid's attention.

I really enjoyed this book because of the voice the characters had through dialogue. There was a surprise ending that was not expected and the story line was humorous. Students would really enjoy this book if the reader gave personality to their characters through voice and tone.

This is the story of a girl going with her dad who is a professional bull rider and her excitement as he prepares for the ride as well as her emotions throughout the ride. This uses a lot of dialogue and is very entertaining.

This is a fun book to read when you give the character's voices. The book is about a child named Lucky Kidd goes to the rodeo with her dad. This is a great book to read when needing a mentor text for internal monologues or surprise endings in writing. This is also just a fun read aloud for entertainment as well.
