What a lovely story about Charlene the horse and her friends, Hattie, the adorable chicken, the dog Elliot, the sheep Woolium. They all work together and help each other to get there, where they like to be.
Then a different horse comes into the scene. Lily, she is afraid even she can ran very well and would be first, but she does not like when other horses bump into her and throw mud into her face when racing.
Charlene and her flock is helping her and telling her, to believe in herself and never to give up. She is working hard not to think at these obstacles and in the end she is the champion. Winning every race.
Then another horse is coming into their stables. He is a strong horse but don't like to jump. They also help him until he becomes a racing horse.
It's a great book for horse lovers, and it is not only a story, it has the hidden meaning of "Never to give up and believe in yourself."
Well done Deanie. Loved to read it
Having learned to overcome her own handicap (in "Tails of Sweetbrier"), Deanie presents a strong "can do" attitude in all of her stories. "Not giving up" to successfully accomplish your dreams is a constant theme.
Each book is loaded with experiences of personal pride and happiness due to accomplishing goals by "doing the hard work". The reader is inspired at every turn.
The stories are realistic, having obstacles as well as successes, and are filled with family or friends who help and encourage each other. In reading about one success after another through personal effort, the reader's personal dreams start jumping into their heads, along with the feeling of "I can do it!" - "is that all it takes? Perseverance and hard work? I can do that!!"
Thank you, Deanie, for the constant reminder to ourselves and our children that a successful, happy life is within our reach when we put for the effort to accomplish our dreams.
Charlene the Star and Hatties Heroes is a book that would appeal to young horse lovers and animals lovers. The added bonus is that it is a book that teaches good character. It's about helping others, working hard, setting goals, doing your best, and being a gracious winner or loser. All of these are valuable life lessons.
This is a wonderful little book about a group of barn animals and is told by a bunch of barn animals. The story is about how a group of animals that help and support each other. The group really helps each other as they set up a coaching group to help others. They are very supportive of each other and constantly compliment and reinforce each other’s good qualities.
I think this is great book for children to help them see that by supporting each other they can really help many situations become positive rather than negative. As I was reading this book, I thought it reminded me a bit of Charlotte’s Web in the way the animals supported and helped each other.
When I first started reading it, I was a bit confused and didn’t realize it was the actual animals talking. Once I figured that out, the book moved along seamlessly. It is a well written book on a level that children can easily understand. I was hoping the book would have more pictures of the characters in it.
I was gifted this book for an honest review. I really enjoyed the book and the positive message it presented. We really need more books like this book out there for our children to read and learn from.
I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars.
