In that respect, the book works as much as a tool as a story. I suspect most parents will recognize Amy in the story, if not from their own children, then perhaps the child from down the street, or the classmate who gets a little too excited about things. One of the most poignant moments in the book is when Amy breaks down and asks, "Why am I always the problem?" For these children (and their parents and caretakers), Tayler's book provides a way to understand and start to control their impulsive behavior.
After a diet of superheroes and other action-heavy books, my son's attention wandered occasionally, but we finished the book to the end.
I should also mention that the artwork is gorgeous, with a very eye-catching style.
Tayler has posted more information (including a PDF of the book) at holdontoyourhorses dot com.
My son really seems to identify with Amy and the way she always ends up in trouble even though she didn't mean to do anything bad. He keeps asking me to read him "The book about the girl who jumps out of bed every morning with her head full of ideas."
The pictures are lovely, and the text is engaging enough that I can read it to the kids two or three times in a row without getting sick of it. All in all, a fabulous children's book.
Sandra Tayler has done an excellent job at all three of these with Hold on to Your Horses. Short enough for a bedtime book, with colorful illustrations that bolster the story without distracting from the message, this book is truly a pleasure. It starts out with an unruly child, and teaches her how to maintain self-control as she tames and guides the horses of her imagination. And, like all the best stories, it ends with a good night's sleep.
