Title: Horse Dreams

About the book:
This is part of the backyard horses series. Ellie James has always dreamed of owning a black stallion. Her friends own horses and have won allot of trophies, but Ellie has never been able to have her own horse. Ellie has a hard time seeing an answer to her prayer, not realizing that maybe God doesn't always say yes.

My take:
What school age girl hasn't dreamed of owning her own horse? This is a great beginning chapter book for Christian girls to not only read about horses and horse shows, but also a great source to learn about answered prayers. Sometimes God does say yes, sometimes no and sometimes in a different way in what we expect. This is an important lesson for everyone. I'm really glad to see a series for Christian kids. I didn't realize these books were out there and I think my daughter will really enjoy it when it comes out!

The author:
She has written over 400 books for all ages. She has a few series for beginning readers and even
teens and adults. She has won many awards for her books and has books with secular as well as Christian publishers. You can find more about the author and her books here.

Five thumbs up out of five!

I was given this book to review by NetGalley and Tyndale kids. All thoughts and opinions are solely mine and I was given no other compensation for a good review.
