Format: Hardcover
Over the past year, we've read my son approximately sixteen thousand Spider-man, Transformer, Magic School Bus, Dr. Seuss, and Berenstain Bears books. Hold on to Your Horses is something different. In the author's words, "Hold on to Your Horses exists because my daughter needed a story that helped her visualize and control her impulsive ideas."

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.

When I ordered this book, I figured it was a "girlish" purchase intended for my daughter, but my five-year-old son is the one who fell in love with it.

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.

As a YA author myself, I know that writing anything for a young audience presents a number of hurdles. How do you write something that will connect with kids? How can you make them better for the experience? And (not least of all) how can you make something that a child will enjoy, but will not make the parent who has to read it want to pull their own ears off to avoid hearing it?

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.

Bravo, Sandra!
