Like all armadillos, Bo is near-sighted, but unlike his armadillo brothers, he longs for adventure. When he mistakes a pair of cowboy boots for another armadillo, Bo races after his new "friend"-and winds up bronc-busting at the rodeo! Jan Brett brings the Texas countryside and rodeo action vividly to life with her lavish, full-color illustrations.
I use Armadillo Rodeo as part of an author study. Students love Jan Brett and enjoy moving to the music. In this lesson, students will "demonstrate partner skills of copying, leading, following, and mirror imaging." --Massachusetts Arts Curriculum Framework
