justin morgan had a horse

The girls have had horse fever for years now. And we've read our share of classic horse stories. We just love the stories we've read by author Marguerite Henry. Misty of Chincoteague and King of the Wind are favorites!

Justin Morgan Had A Horse is just as good. It's a true story about the Morgan breed. An American breed. About a colt named Little Bub, who grows up to be an unexpected champion work horse.

Then suddenly Joel's face lit up as if he had just thought of something for the first time. "Why, come to think of it, he's like us. He's American, that's what he is. American!"

A story that gives hope to the underdog. Pride for hard work.
And reward for patients.
