Cowboy Coloring Page

by Hannah Holt »


It’s been a busy week, and tonight I’m headed to the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators Oregon Conference.

Writing conferences rock. I love chatting with people who feel passionately about oxford commas and third-person-single-reference narration. Plus, SCBWI always brings in fabulous keynote speakers.

The theme for this weekend is Wagons Ho! On the Publishing Trail, so I’ll leave you today with a cowboy coloring page and poem:

Cowboy trail clean

Happy trails, buckaroos!

    Yippee Ki-yay, I can just hear these words being sung at dusk while this cow-poke is still miles from slipping into his sleeping bag. I LOVE this poem. Gene Autry would have paid for these lyrics and they would have made him famous….er. Did you draw this picture? Thank you for this piece of harmonic muse.
