Have you ever wondered how horses become Derby winners? Charlie the Horse by Deanie Humphrys-Dunne is a wonderful children's book about Charlie, the horse. From the beginning Charlie was born to win, just like his father, Charles the Great. Charlie dreamed of becoming a famous racehorse. As children read Charlie the Horse, they will learn about the world of horses. Children will learn the various terms and meanings associated with the horsing industry, from words like canter (slow gallop) and paddock (holding place for the horses before a race) to the starting gate. Charlie loved frolicking, running, and eating in the field with his friends, Buddy and Glory, but he kept his dream at the forefront of his mind and one day his dream came true. In Charlie the Horse by Deanie Humphrys-Dunne, children will learn that with perseverance and determination their dreams can also come true.
I highly recommend Charlie the Horse by Deanie Humphrys-Dunne because children will be fully engaged while reading it. They will enjoy following Charlie and his adventures, and they will learn various types of lessons like doing your best no matter how you feel, as Charlie was told by his mentor, retired racehorse and legend in his own right, General Quick. Additionally, in reading Charlie the Horse, children will become involved and parents can gauge their understanding as they are asked questions about the story, which will in turn enhance their learning experience.
