A cute chihuahua named Chi Chi assists in presenting the tale of the South American cowboys, the vaqueros.
From the Inside Flap:
Chi Chi dice (says), both in Spanish and English, that vaqueros are proud cowboys who drive cattle across the plains. Hired by the cattle-owning charros, they were once simple herdsmen who drove the cows from horseback. Later they developed their own skills and culture, which spread through the Americas. They taught the American cowboys all they knew about being cowboys.
Chi Chi, a chihuahua, helps tell the story of the vaqueros and describes their special skills. He is an expert on the vaqueros because he has watched them herd the cattle and use their roping techniques to catch runaway cows for so long. He also knows about their special gear, like the horns they added to their saddles and the chaparreras (chaps) they added to their outfits to help them in their jobs.
Vaqueros is a colorful introduction to the history, skills, and implements of this unique group. Written in English and Spanish, it allows Hispanic families to enjoy this book in both languages while teaching Spanish to English readers.
This, James Rice's forty-first book, marks his latest contribution to children's literature in his career of more than twenty-five years. With more than one million copies of his books in print, he ranks among the nation's best-selling authors and illustrators. Through his countless school appearances across the country, this grandfather of seven teaches children the pleasures of writing and illustrating books.
