Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—Einstein, the smallest horse ever born, has a dilemma. He is too tiny to be with the other horses except for his mother. Various creatures find their way to his pasture, but none of them fills his need for a real playmate. The kittens hiss at him, the ducks ignore him, and the tortoise is boring. Then he meets Lilly, a boxer that likes to do the same things that he does, from running around in the field to enjoying a roll in the grass. This simple story is effectively told through a brief, lively text and captivating full-color photographs. The images of Einstein are irresistible. Whether in the stall with his mother or cavorting with Lilly, this mini miniature horse with hooves the size of quarters is a charmer. Einstein's owners are authors of this whimsical friendship story. Young animal lovers will enjoy the stallion's thoughts as they peruse the pictures again and again.—Carol Schene, formerly at Taunton Public Schools, MA

    A MUST BUY BOOK!

    I took my five year old son into B&N to choose a book. He went straight for Einstein and would not put it down. He would not let go of it until he fell asleep last night. It is without a doubt the most awesome children's book ever written. Kudos to authors for knocking the ball not just out of the park but clear across the country on this one. My son and I will always be Einstein fans. Can't wait to see the next one!!!!

    Stunningly Beautiful Book

    In a world that is dominated by computer graphics, 3-D animation, and dime a dozen illustrators, this book captures the pure essence of the most beautiful little horse. A fabulous story line coupled with magnificent real life photos make this book one in a million. With five children in our home, we know a great book for children when we see one, and A Friend For Einstein is the best of all of them. Our children love, it. we love, and anyone with a hunkering for a great story and cute photos will love it too.

    Einstein will steal your heart!

    It is hard to believe that a horse this small even exists. I can't quit smiling. I bought the book for my niece, but I am keeping this one for myself and ordering another one for her. Einstein.....I LOVE YOU!!!!

    Tiny LIttle Horse With a Huge Heart!

    A heartwarming tale that will warm your heart and make your cheeks hurt from smiling. My six year old has been glued to this book from the moment she saw the cover of this wonderfully well written and photographed book.

    WOW! This Book Is Fabulous!

    My four year old daughter and eight year old son both are ecstatic over this book. My daughter slept with it last night and would not let me take it from her. She is crazy about tiny Einstein. My son wants a boxer just like Lilly! Even my husband loved the book. I laughed and cried at the same time the first time I read it. A masterful work with photos that will melt your heart. A Friend For Einstein is without a doubt an instant classic that will be read for generations to come.
