Kids who constantly have horses on their minds are going to love this book. The Horse Farm Read-and-Play Sticker Book draws young riders into the places they like best: the horse farm, the tack room, the stable, the paddock, and the stableyard. And with 75 full-color, reusable, heavy-duty vinyl stickers, kids can create their own equine dramas while at the same time learning important points about such essentials as grooming and tacking up.The range of stickers is irresistable. There are foals, a barn cat (and a barn mouse), a vet, and a farrier. But there are also name plates for the horse stalls; saddles, brushes, helmets, and cowboy hats for the tack room; barrels and jumps for horse shows, plus championship ribbons; and a flock of chickens and a few barn swallows for the stableyard.All this horse play, however, is tied to real-life horse lessons. For example, if the game is "let's pretend it's time for the horse's evening feeding," the book reminds kids to give the horse his ration of grain and his mineral block, fill his bucket with fresh water, put out plenty of hay for the horse to munch on, and not to forget the carrot for a snack.Book Details:Format: PaperbackPublication Date: 11/15/2004Pages: 18Reading Level: Age 4 and Up
SHE’S WRITING ABOUT HIM. HE’S WRITING ABOUT HER. AND EVERYBODY IS READING BETWEEN THE LINES. For Erin Blackwell, majoring in creative writing at the New York City college of her dreams is more than a chance to fulfill her ambitions—it’s her ticket away from the tragic memories that shadow her family’s racehorse farm in Kentucky. But when she refuses to major in business and take over the farm herself someday, her grandmother gives Erin’s college tuition and promised inheritance to their maddeningly handsome stable boy, Hunter Allen. Now Erin has to win an internship and work late nights at a local coffee shop to make her own dreams a reality. She should despise Hunter . . . so why does he sneak into her thoughts as the hero of her latest writing assignment? Then, on the day she’s sharing that assignment with her class, Hunter walks in. He’s joining her class. And after he reads about himself in her story, her private fantasies about him must be painfully clear. She only hopes to persuade him not to reveal her secret to everyone else. But Hunter devises his own creative revenge, writing sexy stories that drive the whole class wild with curiosity and fill Erin’s heart with longing. Now she’s not just imagining what might have been. She’s writing a whole new ending for her romance with Hunter . . . except this story could come true.Book Details:Format: PaperbackPublication Date: 7/19/2011Pages: 256
