Sonrise Stable: Rosie and Scamper [Paperback] by Vicki Watson
While learning to ride at Sonrise Stable, eight-year-old Rosie dreams of the horse shows she will win with her pony, Jet. Two years later, nothing is exactly the way Rosie planned it-she's riding a new pony, Scamper, and learning that life isn't always easy. But it's as Rosie reaches out to the new girl next door that she truly begins to see that God works all things together for good in our lives. Rosie and Scamper is the first book in the Sonrise Stable series, heartwarming stories of an extended homeschooling family as they live, learn, and love together. Mixing adventure, life lessons, and realistic horse experiences, the series is a must for readers who enjoy family values, Christian faith, and, of course, horses!
This is a great story for young girls. I can see my younger cousins loving this book. They are obsessed with horses, so this book would be perfect for them.
I love the way the Christian elements were included in this book. It seemed to be done very gently, and in a way kids can understand. I also really liked the sweet friendships in this book. Friendships between the two girls, and friendships between the girls and the horses.
This was a cute book with great lessons for kids!
I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
