BUFFALO ON THE RIDGE
Bo is a Buffalo. He tries to be good, but one day his friend, Pete the Prairie Dog, persuades him to sneak off to another part of the woods. Despite the warnings of Karl the Cowbird, Bo follows Pete with nearly disastrous results.
This charmingly written and illustrated book will delight children ages 5 – 8. I had the unique opportunity to read this book to two different second grade classes recently. It met with great acclaim. The children loved it and had lots to say about Bo and the other characters. It will now go with me to school when I substitute and remains on the top of my most loved list.
"Buffalo on the Ridge" is beautifully illustrated with pictures to entertain children as well as adults. Each page holds little 'hidden' pictures that the children enjoy finding as the book is read. In the back, Meyer has included a short list of facts about the animals in the book, making it a marvelous teaching tool for any classroom.
