From Publishers Weekly:

This disappointing photo documentary relates the experiences of a young Texas cowgirl. McGregor's first children's book, told in the voice of five-year-old Casey, is a hodgepodge assemblage of first-person facts, lumped together without discernible structure. While the particulars of ranch life recounted here--from cutting hay to feeding livestock to riding in a children's rodeo--will be novel to most readers, their seemingly random presentation makes them appear gratuitous and even tiresome. The decision to tell the story in Casey's voice unfortunately imparts a rather lifeless "first-we-did-this-and-then-we-did-that" quality. As a result, despite fleeting glimpses of family members, Casey comes off as a somewhat shadowy figure existing only in a vacuum; we don't even learn how old she is until the last page. The color photographs which capture Casey and her family on the ranch and at the rodeo are of uneven technical quality and often suffer from poor color reproduction. Ages 4-8.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-- Her stirrups reach only mid-body on her horse, and her Western hat overwhelms her head, but this cowgirl shows a lot of gumption. In her first-person photo essay, Casey describes the doings on her family's Texas ranch. Brief paragraphs inset onto full-color photos show the duties involved in raising crops and cattle, and the fun of riding on the ranch and in a rodeo. Throughout the book, the child credits her mother as being a hard-working role model. Focused on family and ranching, this book takes a different approach than Murray Tinkelman's Cowgirl (Greenwillow, 1984). The clear photos and descriptions of Casey's life could introduce story-time listeners to a contemporary rural lifestyle. --Charlene Strickland, formerly at Albuquerque Public Library , NM
