Sunshine Rose—The Story of a Shetland Pony
Poor Roberta has been ill for months, and her parents are desperate to help her get well again. At the doctor’s suggestion, Farmer John buys his sick daughter something she has always wanted: a pony! As Roberta’s condition rapidly improves, it is clear to all that the girl and her new pony, which she names Sunshine Rose, have a very special bond. As soon as Roberta is well enough, she spends her days riding through the countryside on Sunshine Rose’s back. Dangerous adventures await them, however, as Roberta learns lessons about kindness, courage, ingenuity, and loyalty.
