Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Gr. 2-4. Byars blends fantasy and suspense in this beginning chapter book about a miniature horse. Curious Little Horse accidentally falls into a river that carries him far away from his home valley and his mother. Withstanding numerous perils along the way, Little Horse emerges in a new world in which flowers are the size of trees and birds are terrifying predators--the human-sized world, as children learn through the appealing, detailed illustrations. McPhail's play with proportions is a bit awkward, and letting the pictures, rather than the text, reveal most of the clues is not entirely successful. What's more, many of the pictures don't correspond to the action on the same page. But Byars uses language that's just right for beginning readers, and children who decide to tackle the story will enjoy the danger and drama of Little Horse's fast-moving journey and look forward to a sequel, suggested by the ending. Not exceptional, but a solid choice for animal lovers making the transition to chapter books. Gillian Engberg

I have been trying to find stories my 8 year old will enjoy reading. This was a winner and she wants the next book. She usually doesn't like to read , this gave her confidence since the words were simple and the "chapters" were short enough to not intimidate her. Just what she needs to work up to her potential.

This is a great book for beginner chapter readers. IT is also good for children with Visual problems for the words are large enough and the Book has enough space between sentences which is a bonus.

Little Horse is a sweet book about a little horse who gets swept away from his home and encounters some scary challenges. It is a short, easy read. My 8 year old (second grade) daughter's book club read it and all the girls could read it quickly and enjoyed it. I also read it to my 6 year old son in one sitting and he liked it too. The language is descriptive, but simple and the book provides action, without being too scary for little ones. A surprise twist in the story challenges our perceptions about the little horse and the world he encounters. I would recommend it for children in kindergarten through third grade.

I know this book is out of print, but definitely get it if you see it at a reseller or a reissue. It's perfect for the young child who has a third-grade reading level but isn't ready for older themes.
