When Bo spots what he thinks is a "rip-roarin', rootin'-tootin', shiny red armadillo," he knows what he has to do. Follow that armadillo! Bo leaves his mother and three brothers behind and takes off for a two-stepping, bronco-bucking adventure. Jan Brett turns her considerable talents toward the Texas countryside in this amusing story of an armadillo on his own.

Review: Armadillo Rodeo

User Review  - Roxanne - Goodreads

Cute story about a armadillo "Bo" who strays from his mother and the adventures he goes on. I would use this book for preK-2nd grade. As a read aloud lesson with a follow up writing lesson- so the children can have other ideas for writing. Award: Caldecott winner Read full review
