Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ginjer L. Clarke
This book is part of the newly launched "Breyer Stablemates" series (Breyer makes model horses), featuring a different breed of horse in each easy reader story. In this book, Snowflake is dirty and thin when he arrives at Fox Creek Farm. Friends Emily, Anna, and Mandy volunteer to help out after the farm owners initially tell them there is no room for the horse in their stable. The girls name the horse and care for him, and eventually start riding him. Along the way, the text provides information about Percherons, Snowflake's breed. As the weather turns cold, the girls look for a big blanket for Snowflake and instead find a sleigh in the barn. Solving their own problem, the girls propose to use Snowflake to provide sleigh rides at the winter festival, thus raising money for his blanket. Illustrations are large, plentiful, and detailed, and the text is not as long as many chapter books, making this a quick, visual read. It is all about the horses, after all. This warm, fuzzy story will be a holiday favorite for many horse-crazy young readers.

My 5-year old granddaughter, like many girls, adores horses and takes riding lessons so we are gradually accumulating all of these. Besides featuring a specific horse breed, each book has some aspect of social development in focus. This one demonstrates teamwork, entrepreneurial endeavor and money management. It also acquaints a new generation with an actual one horse open sleigh!
