Format: Paperback
My daughter and I are big fans of the Horse Diaries. We fell in love with Elska and have worked our way through these books eagerly awaiting each new release. I read the book description and assumed (incorrectly) that this was going to be a book about Yatimah discovering her speed and abilities while rescuing her foster brother. Yatimah's birthright is to be a "war mare" or a horse used by Bedouin raiders to steal each other's animals. While I don't think this book endorses stealing, it certainly doesn't condemn it either. Yatimah is very excited to be on a raid and does exactly what she's trained for. It is hard to wish Yatimah well and success when she is learning stealth and speed so she can aid her Bedouin owners to steal needed sheep (and why not a camel and some horses while we are here...) The horses make a comment along the lines of who understands men and why they do these things, as long as we are cared for it doesn't matter. Well final thoughts, was this book educational? Sure. Was it interesting? Sure. Did it lead to some good discussion? Sure. Is a horse aiding horse thieves going to rank as my all time favorite horse story? No. Yatimah is what she is.

My two favorite Horse Diaries authors are Catherine Hapka (whose Bionicle books I also enjoyed) and Whitney Sanderson, and Yatimah is a great Hapka book. Though it doesn't really make the stealing seem horrible, or good, Yatimah still covers some interesting facts on Bedouin life, plus how they would've taken care of their animals. The illustrations are beautiful (as always!). Yatimah was an enjoyable and quick read, easy to follow and keeping your attention, and I am looking forward to Risky Chance later this year.

My 9 year old, horse crazy daughter devoured this series! She loved the fact the stories were told from the horses point of view. She shared them with some of her equally horse crazy classmates. Thumbs up all the way around. Her teacher was thrilled with reading and sharing :)
She and her friends are anxiously awaiting the 7th book.

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!

Granddaughter loves to read about horses, since this is one of the things she loves most.
This was her last book in a series of 10 books, and she loved it. Can't wait for another
series to start.

This is a very good book, but a little too short for my liking. This is a book definitely worth buying.:)
