Brief Synopsis: The cowboy bunnies do their chores around the ranch from sunup to until they have some fun before bedtime.
Link to resources: While trying to find resources for this book, I found everything from preschool with classes named "cowboy bunnies" to materials about the Easter bunny to cowboys. Here's a variety of activities for different age levels involving cowboys. This Utah Education Network has a page of materials on What Does a Cowboy Do? I found lots of coloring pages too for cowboys, cowgirls and bunnies.
Why I chose this book: I love books with a ranch southwestern theme. This one is perfect. It's fun for me to read and Enzo enjoys it too. The illustrations are unique. I even read the fine print — "The art was done in gouache on plywood panels."
