This is a fun alphabet book for children. It showcases a (somewhat idealized) rural childhood of Lil Nas X as a young child, whose real name is Montero Hill. Each letter expresses concepts and things he (and each of us) could appreciate, including trying to make the most of each day, while happily accepting managing whatever setbacks life gives us, like when his pony gets out of the barn. The letter “A,” for example, reads “A is for adventure.
Every day is a brand-new start!” The illustrations are forthright, sincere, and engaging, as is the entire book, as it describes the events of a (long and busy) day. Similarly, “Y is for Y’all. We’ve got love for everybody, no matter who you are, where you’re from, what you look like.” The love, happiness, and encouragement are apparent on every page. A lovely little ABC book for any little cowboys and cowgirls in your life.
