These easy reader books are very good for beginning readers, and are entertaining for the kids to read because they have cute story lines.

My 5-year-old loved this book. The first time through was especially enjoyable as he tried to figure out whether Harry's horse was real or not. This book is perfectly suited to its target audience, who are at that age where the line between the real and the imaginary is sometimes blurred and where pretending is part of any happy day. My son also liked resolving the question of whether Harry's horse was real by reading to the end of the book. Definitely a winner!

Format: Paperback
Harry has a horse in his room. No one believes him and his classmates laugh at him, but Harry loves his horse and the horse loves him, and in the end we see that Harry has a pretty good grasp of reality too.
This is a Level 1 I Can Read book. The words are simple and the story is short. Though beginning readers will need help with some of the words, they will enjoy the experience.

This book is very helpful for beginning readers. Most of the words are on the Dolch sight word list of words which should be recognized instantly in order for reading to flow smoothly. The quiet nature of the story makes it appropriate for a bedtime story or for developing reading skills.

My granddaughter learning to read loved this book. She's a horse lover, and has imaginary friends, so putting the two together was fun for her. She read it with help from me for only one word, horse. The rest she knew. I'm always looking for books for her to read.

I'm glad to see this book is still in print. I don't have anything to add to other reviewers' details about it. I enjoyed it many years ago with my own children. I certainly recommend it.

Timeless story, heartwarming message, beautiful pictures - yeah, it's a bit outdated (Little Harry wearing his little tie while playing with his little blocks), but my 5-year-old loves it and reads it again and again and again...

I remember reading this book to my children a few years ago. It's a fun, imaginative book. The sparse illustrations are perfect for the tone of this book.

Harry is such a cute, lovable little character. You will fall in love with him and his horse. Highly recommended.
