"...wholesome... beautiful... I would certainly recommend Buckaroo Chuck: Cowboy For Reals as a great starter picture book for rodeo fans and little buckaroos everywhere." —Kirkus
"...inspiring children to never give up on their goals."
—Children's Bookwatch, Midwest Book Review
Ride along with Buckaroo Chuck as he goes from hopeful youngster to accomplished bull rider. This action-filled story takes the reader through the motions, tumbles and falls of a young buckaroo as he becomes a confident rodeo man. No matter how many times Chuck falls off, he never loses sight of his dream.
The author's purpose is two-fold: promoting the use of helmets and vests when riding in the arena, and inspiring both children and adults to give it their all and never give up.
Most comfortable in jeans and cowboy boots, Lexi Kinney is an LA city girl with a cowgirl's heart. Lexi has 10 siblings, and is mother to 5 and granny to 5. As the author of 4 picture books—Buckaroo Chuck, Little Rosie Rodeo, Animal Jax, and Little Joe Smileyhead—she draws from her many life experiences to inspire children everywhere."
