So I must say, these are the first young children’s books that I’ve received in the mail to review – and I thoroughly enjoyed reading them and looking at the pictures! 😀
I was kindly sent along the first in the series, Quincy Finds a New Home, which was released in 2009 as well as Quincy Moves to the Desert, a 2011 release.
Aimed at 4 – 9 year olds, these stories are interesting, educational and with some gorgeous illustrations by Michelle Black.
Having a nephew that is almost two, I can definitely imagine reading these books to him when he’s a little older and later down the track, can see him delighting in being able to read them by himself!
Quincy Finds a New Home provides children with the important message that to be loved and be a friend is all that is ever needed. Quincy Moves to the Desert educates kids about some of the states in the USA, as well as variations within horse breeds, how they look different and are made for different jobs or disciplines.
Both books are around 40 pages in length and tell a simple story from the point of view of Quincy, the ‘little read horse with a coat the colour of a new penny’. A more in depth review can be found along with my other articles at Suite101.

In my library? Definitely! I’m delighted to be able to have some stories for younger children that will encourage a love for reading and horses.
