reading now: The Black Stallion

 A few weeks ago I picked up a used copy of the The Black Stallion for .50 cents at a local thrift shop along with 3 other horse themed books. 

King of the Wind, Ride a Northbound Horse, and Horse Dairies Black Cloud.  
The print in the Horse Diaries book is well spaced and big enough for Boo to read herself! 


  1. Oh, if you need horse book recommendations, let me know! Emma has loved every book in the Horse Diaries series. In fact, she is writing the next one on her own because she can't wait for it to come out :0)
    Everything by Marguerite Henry is good. Emma also really enjoys Kathleen Duey. Here is a post with some of our favorite book and authors.

    1. Thank you! I will check it out.

      In the store Boo has picked up several horse series books but was disappointed to see how small and close together the print was in them. I am assuming that the whole HD series is formatted the same way as Black Cloud' fingers crossed!

  2. The entire series is formatted the same. Currently there are 10 books in the series. I love that they are fiction, with factual information in the back on the horse breeds.
    Emma also suggests My Secret Unicorn series. The type is similar to the Horse Diaries series.
