Armadillo Rodeo by:Jan Brett
Bo, an adventurous near-sighted armadillo mistakes a pair of red boots for armadillos and ends up at a rodeo. The results are hilarious.
Armadilly Chili by:Helen Ketteman
In this Texas-style version of well known folktale, a tarantula, mockingbird, and horned toad refuse to help an armadillo prepare a batch of chili. When the chili's done, the critters are ready to chow down.
Songs
Cow Pokey
Tune-Hokey Pokey
You put your right hoof in, you take your right hoof out. You put your right hoof in, and you shake it all about. You do the cow pokey and you turn yourself around. That's what it's all about. Other verses-left hoof, long horns, scruffy tail.
