I bought this book for my 9 year old granddaughter and she loved it so much that she couldn't put it down. I proceeded to buy the rest of the series which she enjoyed just as much. The reading level was a bit easy for her and she finished each book in a couple of hours. The history and geography at the back of the book really opened her eyes up to the fact that history and geography can be fun to learn. My granddaughter is a horse lover which is why I bought this in the first place. However my granddaughter passed the books onto a friend who has no riding experience or love of horses and she enjoyed them very much.

Format: Paperback
The story Horse Diaries-Koda by Patricia Hermes, is set on the Oregon Trail and
tells the adventures of Koda, the quarter horse. Koda is a curious horse who
likes to run from his mother and the wagon train. Everytime Koda runs away he
experiences many things around him for the first time. A young girl becomes
separated from the wagon train and will Koda be the hero and save the day?

Patricia Hermes writes an exciting adventure story of Koda. Hermes keeps
the reader wanting to read more of Koda's diary. The author does a good job of
wrapping up subplots and readers could picture the setting if they closed their
eyes. This book was told in first person and was appropriate. Patricia Hermes
put just the right amount of detail in her book. This book is good but not the
best I have ever read. I would recommend this book to kids who enjoy stories
about horses and adventure.

I bought this book for my ten year old daughter. It is below her reading level, but she LOVES horses and anything to do with them. I hadn't heard about this series yet and was very pleased to hear that my daughter really liked this series. I bought the rest that were available and when she finished number 4 she asked me if there were any more books in the series. I have the next two on pre-order!

My daughter loves this series of books! She is crazy about horses and particularly likes the fact that these books are told from the horse's perspective! It is sometimes very difficult getting kids to read - I have found books that utilize animals as characters are very engaging for young readers. My daughter also loves that each book has a different author because she feels it gives the reader more variety with the characters especially since each story is told by a horse. Happy reading!

This is a great book for anyone who loves or is interested in horses. It teaches you about loyalty and companionship. It also shows you that pets are really just family that you just can't communicate with. So if you have a pet treat them like family cause family will help you if you need it. So will your pets, big or small.
