Mary Helen and the Black Pony

By Molly Sanchez
Level 2

Mary Helen is a happy little girl who loves God, family, friends, and horses. But Mary Helen has a problem—she’s too shy to talk to anyone else! Grown-ups and older kids seem too scary to talk to, so she can only lower her head and say nothing at all. Find out how Mary Helen is able to grow and face her fears through God’s love, some helpful advice from her parents, and caring for a beautiful black pony named Moki.
