Author, Valerie Ormond, does an excellent job in creating a story that is not only educational, but interesting. The subplot with the horse thieves is also nicely done, as it creates an element of suspense.
Young readers may be inspired after reading about Sadie's accomplishments, to try finding their own cause to believe in. Believing in Horses is an excellent book for horse lovers age 10 and older. I highly recommend this book.
As a teacher/parent, I want people to know that Valerie Ormond's brother, Edward Ormond (who has an educational background) has created Teacher's Tack, a teacher's resource to accompany Believing in Horses. I can see Mr. Ormond's teacher's heart come through this guide. It is packed with high-level thinking activities. As a teacher of 36 years, who truly believes in challenging our students, I was thrilled to see the inclusion of activities based on Howard Gardner's multiple intelligences. Teacher's Tack is a superb resource for home schoolers and/or public schools. If I was still in the classroom, this would be one book I would share with my students, and we'd enjoy learning through the experiences provided in this resource.
