I read this book to my children when they were young and they loved hearing it again and again.
My wife and I recently celebrated our 50th anniversary, and as part of the program, I read it out loud again to about 60 friends and relatives, including my children and grandchildren. They thoroughly enjoyed it. I put the same energy into the reading as I used to when my children were young.
This copy was in excellent condition. I could not find my original copy, so I was happy to find this one. I later found out that my son has the original copy, and has read it to his children.

These were my favorite books in grade school!!!!!! The Billy and Blaze books I had read over and over and over. Nothing is like them. They are the dreams of horse lovers: this partnership between horse and human. I had wished I was like Billy when I was young (even though I was a girl).
If you have a child who has a love for horses, learn about horses and encourage your child to get involved despite the expense. There are opportunities to work for riding lessons. That is a good thing. There is also sponsership/lease available for part-time riding (3days a week) which helps both the owner and the sponser.
