Let's Sing a Lullaby with the Brave Cowboy

With Audio Recording

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


This playful picture book with audio from Jan Thomas features a courageous cowboy who croons to his cows before bed—with just a few fearful interruptions.

Join the Brave Cowboy as he tries to sing his young calf pals to sleep on a dark, dark night—EEEEEEEK! IS THAT A HUGE HAIRY SPIDER OVER THERE? Oh, it’s just a flower? Well then, back to the lullaby.
No one does preschool humor with Jan Thomas’s wit, verve, and bold, snappy color. And her Brave Cowboy and his silly, interrupted lullaby are sure to get everybody singing—before they head off into cozy dreamland…

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 23, 2012 – Those who know and love Thomas will guess that the title of her latest is a clue that something is afoot. In this case, it s the word Brave, because the titular cowboy is anything but. The little cows under his care (clearly the same breed as the goofy bovines of 2011 s Is Everyone Ready for Fun?) are ready to hit the hay under the stars. But each time the cowboy starts his lullaby (the sappy and monotonous lyrics of which will have kids and grownups giggling), he mistakes something innocuous for something scary, shouts Eeeeek! (instead of goodnight ), and has to restart the song. But Brave Cowboy isn t the only one to emit an Eeeeek that night, proving that sometimes a lullaby is all a cowboy needs to tame a terror. Like Thomas s other stories, this one is ostensibly as uncomplicated as her big, loopy cartooning. But it s actually a little gem of sketch comedy, drawing on a deep understanding of how timing, repetition, and modulation can make a story both fun to read aloud and a guaranteed laugh-getter, time and time again. Ages 3 5.
