Book Review

A while back I got an e-mail asking me to do a book review on 2 juvenile fiction horse books by Jenny Oldfield, for ages 9 & up. The books arrived promptly and I dove right in. Despite the fact that they are "juvenile", they kept my interest (|I'm 47!), and I passed them along to my 17-year-old who promised to read them as well. I'm now realizing that I haven't heard back from her so willfollow up with that!

Here are the two books that were sent:

Both books feature Kirstie Scott of Half Moon Ranch, a guest ranch run by her family. Each follows Kirstie through an adventure with a wild horse, one truly wild and the other being used cruelly in a rodeo. Kirstie leads a life any young girl would love to have, and the stories have great morals to them as well. These books would make a great Christmas gift for any young girl, horse crazy or not {yet}.

There are several more in the series and I sure would like to get my hands on them as well. Once my daughter is through with them, I will be looking for another youngster to pass them to! Hey CarrollFarm, do your older girls like to read as much as your two little ones?
