Recently my husband and I bought this children's book for our three year old grandson. Charlie the Ranch Dog, by Ree Drummond is one of the cutest children's books I've read. The story is about Charlie and Susie, two of the dogs on her ranch in Oklahoma. The text centers around how these two dogs spend their day on a ranch. The illustrations are adorable. It's a must read book with our grandson.
The pictures above are the real Charlie and Susie that are in her cookbook. I bought the cookbook last year and it includes recipes with how to pictures and pictures of her children, husband and animals. If you haven't seen the cookbook you are missing out on some home grown Oklahoma recipes. Our grandson loves the cookbook because of all the pictures of her dogs, horses and cows. It's one of his favorite books. He was familar with Charlie and Susie, and when she wrote a book about them we just had to buy it for him.
If you have young children or grandchildren I highly recommend this book. I also recommend The Pioneer Woman Cooks for a great cookbook.
Happy reading and cooking,
