New York: Tenth Avenue Cowboy


Tenth Avenue Cowboy is about a boy who moves from his ranch out west to New York City during the early 1900s.  All he wants is to be a cowboy, and one day his dream comes true, but not the way he wanted.


After reading it we talked about dreams that came true, but not the way we wanted.  Boy K had a great example, and Princess had a decent example, but my boys…….


After the discussion I had the kids all draw a picture of their dream coming true and write how it was different than expected.  Well……. Batman dreamed he was opening presents and the present was him.  Superman dreamed he was eating all sorts of food.


Princess was the primary one who understood the assignment, but her answer was very personal, so I’m not going to share it here.


That day the boys were just silly.  Silly Superman, Silly Batman.
