Ghost Town at Sundown :The Wild West~Poppins Book Nook


Emily loves reading and is working her way through the Magic Tree House series.  I love these books because they combine fiction with non-fiction to create a fun story that children can actually learn from.  For this month’s Wild West theme she read Ghost Town at Sundown (Magic Tree House).  In this book the Magic Tree House whisks Jack and Annie back to a ghost town in the Wild West around the 1880’s. They meet a mustang herder named Slim and also some rattlesnakes, horse thieves, a lost pony, and even a ghost.

Both Emily and Juliette had fun decorating their own Cow Girl Boot to go along with this book and the Wild West theme.

Decorating Cow Girl Boots

I found a great Cowboy Boot Template that the girls used as an outline. I set them up with our box of markers and bin of collage materials and let them decorate however they wanted to.
