I Want to be a Cowgirl by Jeanne WillisMeet a city girl with a big Wild West dream.
I dont want to be a good girl-
Good girls have no fun.
I cant play quiet games indoors,
I love the rain and sun.
I dont want to be a girly girl
Who likes to sit and chat.
I just want to be a cowgirl, Daddy,
Whats so wrong with that?
From the window of a high-rise city apartment, a little girl imagines a very different view and dreams of a very different life, but does it have to be just a dream?
The big city meets the wild Wild West in Jeanne Williss lyrical text, accompanied by hilarious illustrations from Tony Ross.

The board game, today called Snakes and Ladders, originated in ancient India, where it was known with the name Mokshapat or Moksha Patamu.
In Chutes and Ladders, players race to be the first to the top of the board. The game is entirely determined by a random factor, either a spinner or the roll of a die; players make no decisions at all. It is a game appropriate for younger children. This children's board game is based on the ancient game of Snakes and Ladders, which is believed to date back to India in the 2nd century B. The historic version was an allegory of the journey of life where you ascend due to destiny, or karma, represented by ladders, but are set back by kama, or desire, represented by snakes.
