Get ready, because Cowgirl Kate and her horse Cocoa are back for more adventures on the range. These two best friends love to spend time together-they just don't always see eye to eye. When Kate decides it's time for Cocoa to get new horseshoes, her favorite horse has other ideas. And Kate might have to get sneaky to convince Cocoa to get new footwear. Then while riding the range counting the cows, they notice a calf is missing. Perhaps he's playing hide and seek, which is just what Cocoa wants to do anyway! Kate also practices her roping skills-on Cocoa. Finally, the two even go swimming. But Kate isn't quite ready to make the giant leap into the farm's pond. This charming follow-up to the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award winner Cowgirl Kate and Cocoa is a hit with kids, parents and critics. Partners offers children valuable lessons about friendship. "This is a pleasing choice as either a beginning reader or a picture book to read aloud."-Booklist

"Roping, riding, and herding are some of the chores and pleasures of ranch life for Kate. Cocoa, a cow pony portrayed with a distinctive, deep voice, would rather have cowboy boots than horseshoes and would rather play hide-and-eat than hide-and-seek. Narrator Liz Morton uses just a hint of a twang to bring these two likable pals to life, ending each of the four short episodes with a funny punch line. The measured pace of the reading, the page-turn signals on Disc Two, and the absence of any sound effects indicate that this story may be best enjoyed with the illustrated book. R.H.H.
