Marguerite Henry Horse Books

By Marguerite Henry
Level 7

Marguerite Henry is a master storyteller and a fantastic writer. The series is packed with rich language, elevated vocabulary, and vivid descriptions. It is packed with educational information on horses, but even non-horse lovers should enjoy this well written, wholesome series.  Readers who are used to only action-packed, quick reads may find this series boring. Readers who value good literature and challenging reading will find these sweet, profound stories to be an absolute treasure. Messages in this series include persistence, compassion, loyalty, patience, and selfless love.
