Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3–Chloe, a riding enthusiast who has been awaiting the jumping competition, is paired with Niki, a beautiful pony with a reputation of never following riders' commands. She saddles him up and tries to make the most of the situation, but is nearly in tears. Her Uncle Tony shows up with a present–a riding baton from Mexico that he says is magical. She guides the horse through his paces to win the race–and many others after that. Then, just before an important meet, Chloe realizes that the baton is missing, and she loses her confidence. This time, Niki leads them to the starting gate, and pony and rider perform perfectly together. The smooth text is supported by lovely ink-and-watercolor spreads. With its story of courage and learning, horse lovers will adore this picture book.–Alice DiNizo, Plainfield Public Schools, NJ

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this as a gift for a friend's daughter whose name is Chloe, and she is thrilled. The story itself is full of good messages for children - facing obstacles, being brave, believing in yourself. The character that provides the most moral support for Chloe is her uncle, which is a nice change from the usual parental emphasis. Extended family plays such an important role in the lives of children, and it was a sweet touch to have this uncle-niece connection to open discussion about family ties and feelings.
