This is a warm and witty introduction to horses from author Vivian French and illustrator Catherine Rayner.
Shannon is a friendly bay mare and she will help build up the confidence of children who are unfamiliar or nervous of these magnificent animals.
Based on Vivian's personal experiences of horse riding, this book outlines horses' behavioural traits and how they thrive on company and companionship. It also includes facts and practical tips on a number of pages - including the best way to feed a horse a carrot.
Firstly, as a grandmother, I enjoyed the book tremendously (words and pictures). My 5-year-old granddaughter loved it and as she rides a horse anyway she easily related to the pictures imagining herself as the rider.
