Reviews - What do customers think about Growing Up Cowboy?
gorgeous & heartfelt May 8, 2009
Did you ever want to be a cowboy? I remember as a kid the thought of riding a horse was so appealing... actually it still is... And what's not to love about the "Wild West"? Back in the day where people knew their manners.
Growing up a Cowboy is a great investment for any little cow-poke who needs to learn a few things!
I think the table of Contents says it all:
A Growing Cowboy is:
* Respectful * Polite * Honest * Courageous * Joyful * Generous * Hopeful * Adventurous * Compassionate * Helpful * Full of Dreams * Hardworking * Patient * Grateful * Loyal * A Friend * Strong in Character
These topics are covered with the stunning artwork from Jack that will capture and take your breath away. I love the quotes and think this is a great book to encourage and meld my son(s) into a godly man! :)
While I originally thought this was a book for kids -- and it is in ways -- I think this is more of a gift book for parents/adults who want a short moment to reflect and find hope. The sweet segments give you ideas you can incorporate into your child's life that can help them grow positively. Not to mention you'll enjoy staring at the Rockwell like images.
I'll be keeping this book around for a very long time indeed!
Beautiful... Oct 27, 2008
Jack Sorenson has a God given talent. Growing Up Cowboy is beautifully illustrated. The depth of the illustrations is amazing. The colors are vivid. In most books, the illustrations are the backdrop for the text, not so in Growing Up Cowboy. Hope Lyda supplied the text. Each essay is beautifully written with much wisdom. She includes quotes from well-known people. My favorite illustration has a boy riding a horse carrying his fishing pole.
Walking along beside him is his faithful canine companion. The accompanying essay is entitled Joyful. "Turn any moment--a trial or celebration--into a lesson about resting in and shaping a life with joy." Growing Up Cowboy will make a cherished gift for someone you love.
