Summer Reading and Crafts
“Yet when the books have been read and reread, it boils down to the horse, his human companion, and what goes on between them.” – Walter Farley
What are your reading interests this summer? Are you reading about Fergus? Reading Thelwell books? Or maybe you’re interested in Rita Mae Brown’s cat mystery books. Are you reading the Saddle Club series? We want to know what books are on your summer reading list.
Horse and Rider Books offers a variety of children’s horse books and books on making horse-related crafts. Read about some of them at: https://horseandriderbooks.wordpress.com/category/childrens-books/
Have you read Charlie Mackesy’s The Boy, the Mole, the Fox, and the Horse?
Have you read some of the classics like Black Beauty, The Black Stallion, Misty of Chincoteague and Stormy, Misty’s Foal?
There’s Paul Goble’s The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses. It won the Caldecott Medal for illustration.
How about Fritz and the Beautiful Horses, written and illustrated by Jan Brett?
There are many more to choose from. Check with you local library or bookstore, or browse the Internet for “horse books for children.”
