Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Laci enthusiastically tacks up her faithful pony Jack as she gets ready for her riding lesson. As part of the Viking "Easy-to-Read" series, My Pony Jack at Riding Lessons is no exception in providing young readers with another example of the loving bond between Laci and her pony and the love she has for riding. Once Laci has saddled Jack up and is ready to go, it is out to the ring with the other girls. Off they go, walking, trotting, and even cantering as fast as the wind. The story is written in a simple, easy-to-read rhyme that early readers will thoroughly enjoy. The illustrations are bright, colorful, and cheerful. In the back of the book there is even a short glossary of equestrian terms so readers can learn a little bit about horses and riding. 2005, Penguin, Ages 5 to 7.

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-With one sentence per page, this book will satisfy emergent readers-especially those who have some experience riding. The story line is a brief overview of Lacy's lesson, including her arrival at Jack's stall, her trainer's directives and instruction, and a brush down and a nuzzle. The accuracy of the illustrations is commendable, from the design of the tack room to how a trainer touches the horse to the correct depiction of the trot and canter. Some new vocabulary is introduced, such as "bridle" and "canter," and a glossary is included. An appealing choice for young horse lovers.-Laurel L.
