Amy reads Armadillo Rodeo, written and illustrated by Jan Brett. Most armadillos are happy scratching sand and eating, but Bo longs for adventure. And adventure Bo gets, the day Harmony Jean breaks in her brand-new chili- pepper-red cowboy boots by the banks of Can Creek. Peering out across the creek bed, Bo is sure he’s spotted a rip-roarin’, rootin’-tootin’, shiny red armadillo! Bo’s off and running after his new friend–right down to the Curly H Rodeo.
