Horse Dreams by Dandi Daley Mackall
Read the first chapter Here.
Fourth-grader Ellie James has a great imagination. She spends a lot of time daydreaming of owning a black stallion show horse and winning trophies in the horse show. But when the answer to all her dreams and prayers gallops into her life, will Ellie be able to recognize it? Join Ellie and her quirky family in their exciting, horse-loving adventures.
Horse Dreams by Dandi Daley Mackall is an interesting and exciting novel for young children who LOVE horses. The plot is simple yet has instances of suspense, humor, prayer, and the support of family and friends. The characters had their share of entertaining quirks, impressive strengths, and relatable flaws. I like how the author showed the faith and prayer life that small children who trust God have. As a reader of the Winnie the Horse Gentler series when I was young, I was glad to see this series for even younger children that immerses young imaginations in the daydreams and wonders of horses.
