From the Author
I invite you to read Tecolote: The Little Horse That Could. To me, Tecolote represents everything a horse should be. He was loyal and steadfast, trustworthy to a fault. Tecolote ended up being my personal horse. He brought riding back into my life at a time when I'd been sidelined by injuries and surgery to repair them. I'd been diminished by all the surgery and pain that went with it. Tecolote gave me my boldness back. I think boldness is something people need more than anything if they are to be all they were meant to be.
Tecolote gave me those gifts, and gave all of us the gift of the story of his early life that is recorded in his book. When he'd done that, Tecolote left this earth. My beloved Teco died of heart failure in early May, 2011, just days before his tenth birthday. It broke my heart. The vets said that what happened had nothing to do with his prematurity.
Teco's death was surrounded by heartache and joy. We received notice that his book had won the 2011 Silver Nautilus in Juvenile Nonfiction (Grades 1 - 6) the day before we found out his heart was failing. During the next few weeks, the book contests announced their awards. I alternated between joy over the awards his book won and despair over his deteriorating condition.
Finally, Tecolote's great heart could stand no more. Teco is gone, but his book remains.
I'd rather have the horse, but at least I can share the book with you.

~The Rebecca Review
It was very sad that Tecolotes’ mother Rosey died and he felt he was all alone when she left.
But I was happy that Teco has lots of good people and 2 horsey friends Eddie and Shambho to help him. It was interesting to read that the horses had lessons like me and my friends at school
It was funny how Eddie wasn’t that friendly with the other horses because when he met Tecolote they became friends right away and later Eddie ended up being like Tecos’ uncle because he would always take care of him and protect him.
Seeing the photos made me feel closer to the horses and the people in the story.
It was great to see Teco doing well even though he didn’t have a good start to life.
I enjoyed reading about Tecolotes life and think this is a great book for primary school students like me and my friends.
This is a terrific book for little ones and big ones too. It shows how animals have so much to offer us and teach us. In my opinion this is a must read for any animal lover. I have never owned a horse or even ridden one but I fell in love with Tecolote as soon as I open this book.
The book is beautifully illustrated with photos of Tecolote and the other horses on the farm. It would be a great gift book for horse lovers of all ages. Tecolote: The Little Horse That Could is written simply enough so children can read it themselves, but it will also appeal to adults.
