I read Cowgirl Kate stories, listened to some fine Cowboy music, chatted with local Rodeo Queens, Cynthia Boswell and Sabrina Snowball, and tried to rope a "pretend" bull (got it on the fourth try!) at the Frugal Frigate, a terrific independent children's bookstore.

March is Women's History Month and over at "kidlitblog" they are celebrating all month. Every day a different teacher, author, librarian, or historian, is adding a post about Women's History in Children's Books.

Happy Women's History Month!
