One star is probably harsh, and I don't really know all that much about children's writing, but it moved so slow in the beginning. Once you got to the pay off "Everyone needs so many kisses," the narrative decides not to be coherent and ends with a perplexing message.

Cowboy Kid has a hard time falling asleep when he is overly concerned about his stuffed animals. The illustrations of the book are very bright and colorful. It can also be told without the text. The text is very basic and could be enjoyed by very early readers.

This book doesn't really give much to the imagination. The only thing I get from it is that a little boy wouldn't go to sleep. There isn't really anything that I liked about this book.

A sequel that doesn't hold up in quality and cuteness of the original. However parents with children that struggle to stay in bed might use this book as a discussion starter.

My mama read this aloud to a group of kids (including me!) at a storytime program for National Cowboy Day!

"Sequel" to _Cowboy Baby_, also illustrated by Sue Heap.

Cute going-to-bed story with few "wild west" references.
