Little Joe by Sandra Neil Wallace

Itrsquo;s a cold December night and Fancy, the Stegner familyrsquo;s cow, is about to give birth. Out pops Little Joe, a huge bull calf, and with him comes nine-year-old Elirsquo;s first chance to raise an animal to show at next fallrsquo;s county fair. Over the next ten months, Eli, and Little Joe, learn some hard lessons about growing up and what it means to take on bigger responsibilities, especially when it comes to taking care of another living thing. But one thing Eli is trying not to think about is what will happen to Little Joe after the fair: itrsquo;s auction time, and hersquo;ll have to sell Little Joe! In this appealing and heartwarming story thatrsquo;s reminiscent of James Herriotrsquo;s books, Eli comes to terms with some of the realities of life on his familyrsquo;s farm, and in the outside world, as he raises his first bull calf for competition. Told in a straightforward and appealing text, brimming with lush details about the natural world of the farm, and with characters that are sure to appeal to readers, Elirsquo;s story is one that may not be familiar to every kid, but the themes of growing up and learning some difficult lessons will appeal to kids and adults alike. From the Hardcover edition.
