Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Lacy and Jack are getting ready for the horse show. There is a lot of work to be done. Her horse needs to be washed, bushed, and have his mane braided. Then the hooves must be polished. Lacy herself gets ready for the big event and suffers from an attack of nerves, but her instructor and friends provide reassurance. She remembers her lessons—and what a nice surprise when she and Jack win a ribbon for second place. While the story is simple, it does provide young kids who are horse crazy with a realistic look at some of the care required when you have a horse. It also reveals that many of us get butterflies when we are going to enter a contest, but that training and confidence in yourself can win out. The last page has a recap of many "Pony Words" with straightforward definitions. A Level 1 book in the "Viking Easy-To-Read" series.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Lacy gives her pony a bath, polishes his feet, and braids his mane in preparation for their first show. Although she is a little overwhelmed when she first arrives, her trainer reassures her that she will do fine. In the ring, Lacy puts Jack through his paces and, at the end of the event, they receive a second-place ribbon. This is a straightforward, easy-to-read level-one story. The rhyming text is simple but pleasant. The bright-colored, cartoon illustrations depict sturdy ponies with appropriately dressed young riders in their hard hats and boots. A cheerful choice for beginning readers and novice equestrians alike.-Carol Schene, formerly at Taunton Public Schools, MA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
