Black Beauty tells the story of the horse's own long and varied life, from a well-born colt in a pleasant meadow to an elegant carriage horse for a gentleman to a painfully overworked cab horse. Throughout, Sewell rails--in a gentle, 19th-century way--against animal maltreatment. Young readers will follow Black Beauty's fortunes, good and bad, with gentle masters as well as cruel. Children can easily make the leap from horse-human relationships to human-human relationships, and begin to understand how their own consideration of others may be a benefit to all. (Ages 9 to 12) --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
A great classic, and I recommend it to anyone who likes a good old fashioned read.
Black Beauty is a great book about a horse and his life. from good masters to bad, happy moments to sad, this book tells it all.
This book was purchased for me to read to my 5 year old granddaughter hoping to instill in her the same love for books.
I love this book as a child and now as an adult. It traces the life of a horse when horses were "beasts of burden". Read morePublished 5 days ago by AMC
