Pros: A tiny horsey finds a friend - what's not to love?
The Bottom Line: When the tiniest stallion can't run with the herd of big horses who is there left to be friends with?
Customers lead me to all the best books, I swear. The funny thing is, usually when they tell me I should read it, I never get around to it. But if they've only heard of it and want to take a look at it, if it interests me I'll take a second look, and sometimes I'll make a serious note to read it.
Such is the case of Einstein's tale. Einstein is a miniature miniature horse. When he was born, he weighed less than a cat. He was no taller than a cereal box. Yeah, hard to picture isn't it? But that made Einstein much too small to run with the herd. But he still needed someone to be with - so who could be his friend?
Enjoy Einstein's search for a friend just his size that he could play with. He tries several different animals before finding the perfect companion.
Happy animal books like this one turn me into such a kid. They're adorable and positive and just make you feel good. It doesn't matter how old you are because the story is still the kind that will make you say, "Awww!" It's a simple story with text that kids can either read themselves or allow parents to read to them. The pictures are bright and fun - who doesn't love to see a tiny horse bouncing through the fields and looking for someone to be friends with. Kids will fall in love with this little horse - and no doubt many adults will as well (because many already have!).
Even better? A portion of the author's proceeds will donated to the ASPCA's Equine Fund. So kids get a book they love, adults get to feel like kids, and horsies all over will get a second chance for a better life. Everybody wins! Thanks Einstein!
