Cowgirl Kate and her horse Cocoa love getting up early and herding cattle on the range. They are the closest pals, even though they don't always see eye to eye. When its time to wrangle the cattle, Kate is ready to go with her sharp cowboy hat and tough rawhide gloves, but Cocoa needs a little more encouragement. After a quick drink and a few apples, the two are off to the range to get to work. With Cocoa's help, Kate climbs trees, tells stories, counts the cows and rides the range. And once their adventures get going, the two argue as only best buddies can do. Erica Silverman's Cowgirl Kate and Cocoa is a recipient of the Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor and a treat for young listeners. Narrator Liz Morton perfectly captures the spirit of friendship and loyalty found in this delightful collection of stories. "This book is sure to be a favorite with girls and parents everywhere."-Children's Literature

"Kate and her horse, Cocoa, are two fine friends. The ordinary moments of the wrangling world and a cowpoke's day depict the pleasures of shared experience. Liz Morton brings deliberate pacing and a Western twang to each chapter. She also brings out the complexity of the characters with personalized portrayals. Kate can be both exasperated as she tends to Cocoa's every need and appreciative as Cocoa helps her to count the cow herd. Cocoa himself is self-centered and impulsive, but he is also loyal to the end. The story of a real cowgirl finding a real cow horse will delight. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
