Little Old Big Beard and Big Young Little Beard by Remy Charlip

Little Old Big Beard and Big Young Little Beard are the best of friends and the best of cowboys. One evening, sitting by the campfire, they discover their cow, Grace, has disappeared. So off they go, around and around their favourite hill and up the next hill to look for their beloved cow. Just when they think she's lost forever, she finds them, and they end up back together, the loveable trio they've always been. This simple, funny story with its appealingly naive illustrations is perfect for reading aloud, or for young learners to read by themselves.
