On a ranch a child learns responsibility at a young age. Not just an intellectual journey, growing up on a ranch is learning about feelings & hard work. From getting dressed in the morning, sorting cattle, meals, & bedtime, living on a ranch is quite challenging for a child, as well as an adult. A Direction Map, Wordfind, & Dot-to-Dot are included in this children's book along with a recipe for peach cobbler. Whether you live on a ranch or not, one needs to see the story from a child's point of view. The author, Patsy Holman, was born in Texas, raised in the fifties, & has traveled throughout the United States as a child. Being a child of an oil field worker, Mrs. Holman's background enabled her to gain an insight into many different schools as early as first grade. Not only did she move twelve times during her first year in school, but she also kept a book from each teacher. Her love for books led her to a career in teaching elementary school. Mrs. Holman plans to donate any profits from the sale of her most "unique" children's book, AT THE RANCH WITH TAYLOR, to aid in the prevention of CHILD ABUSE. Although this book is designed with a young child in mind, parents may find it fun to read.Holman, Patsy S. is the author of 'At the Ranch with Taylor' with ISBN 9780963072993 and ISBN 0963072994.
