Poppins Book Nook: Cowboys and giveaway

     Welcome back to this month's edition of Poppins Book Nook!!  This month's theme was cowboys.  We chose the book by Laurie Lazzaro Knowlton called Why Cowboys need a Brand.  She actually has several cowboy themed books and they are all good reads for kids.  We focused on this book as I thought we could make it come to life with are own cow!!  You will see how willing or unwilling he is a little later!!

For our craft, I gave him 2 pipe cleaners and let him make his own brand.

Diamond U Farms!

Our cow Mocha.

On to the giveaway!!
