A well written lovely tale that tells all about what being a racehorse is like, this coming straight from the horse's mouth of course (pun intended). For kids who love horses and animals, this is a cute and fun way to learn about their favorite animal. A lovely little educative package with great illustrations.

Charlie is a sweet colt and he wants to become a famous racehorse just like his dad . He has a little trouble focusing on work and just wants to munch the flowers and hang out . What happens when he is older , who helps him get better at the racing and will his big dream go down . Will he perserve to become the fastest horse out there just like his dad . 

   This is a sweet story of a colt that wants to be famous like his dad . Charlie is such a sweet colt and he wants to be the best but sometimes he doesn't want to work , he would rather play and eat the flowers . His friends keep him on the straight and narrow to get training and become what he wants to be. You will fall in love with charlie and Misty and the rest of the people that want Charlie to be the best . 

   I sat down one night and started reading this book . I was looking for a story for my great niece . I really liked the way the author took us from Charlie being a foal up to his first big race . The moral of the story for me and i think for your children is that working hard and setting goals is a good thing . It also shows that if you peserve you will succeed . You young readers will love the story that Charlie tells us in his own words . I would get your kids to read it this summer .

Charlie the Horse is a very good children's book that teaches cause and effect, sacrifice and gain, perseverance and hope. This is a great story to give children a chance to see how decisions, even small ones, can impact the outcome of your life. 

I received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.

This was such a lovely short story that I think the kids will really like to read about, especially since it's about a horse's journey to becoming the best racehorse. Also the illustrations were quite nice and added that something special to the story. I would definitely recommend others to give this book a try. Not much can go wrong when it's a story about such a majestic animal.

Charlie the Horse is a coming of age tale with important lessons for all kids.  The story follows Charlie from when he is a little foal until he is a great racehorse.  There are important characters which help him along the way.  His mentor General and his trainer Kerry.  Charlie has to face distractions, homesickness, hard work, perseverance, and the ability to learn.  The story also has a great lesson in the end about staying humble.  The simplistic illustrations enhance the story without overpowering the teaching moments.
