Poet At Large Reviews, Childrens Books, The Strength of Wild Horses   Leave a comment

I usually review books intended for older readers but some times you come across a series meant for young kids that you wish was written when you were in Elementary School.  ‘The Strength of Wild Horse’ is the sequel to the 2008 book ‘Hold on to your Horses’. Both books are written by Sandra Tayler and illustrated by Angela Call.  The books are about a young girl named Amy who has ideas that are like wild horses and being young she has not yet learned the restraint to keep her ideas from running away with her.  In the first book ‘Hold on to Your Horses’ Amy learns something about leading her ideas instead of letting them lead her.  This is a stage in life that all young children must go through.

In the second book she learns to use her ideas to help those around her, like her older sister Kari. Kari has a terrible time trying to take care of Amy and their Baby brother while their parents are out one evening.  Just when Kari thinks nothing can go right Amy and her wild ideas save the day.  The books are filled with wonderful pictures that will take your breath away and sage advice that can be enjoyed by both young and old.  These books can be ordered by going to http://www.schlockmercenary.com and going into the Schlock Store. While you are there I suggest that you look for Sandra’s books “Cobble Stones 2011′ and ‘Cobble Stones 2012’ these books of essays selected from Sandra’s blog ‘One Cobble at a Time’ are very uplifting for adults to read.
