Childhood favorite

This was one of my favorite books as a child. I was one of those horse-crazy girls but recommend this for all kids. It's an uplifting story, and the writing is well done.

Well-written prose, great characters, pony mystique

I read this out-loud to my seven year old. She loved it and found the story engrossing and the characters relatable. She wants to read more Marguerite Henri books now. I liked the portrayal of the positive sibling relationship between the brother and sister and how industriously they worked toward their goal of buying the horse. They also handled disappointment with a lot of grace. Their are some good discussion points as to when "interfering" with nature is a good thing and when wild things should be left to the wild.
