Pony Scouts: Pony Crazy is a simple, 32-page, easy reader about horses and a girl named Meg. Meg loves everything to do with horses. She used to live in the city where there were no horses, but one day she moves to the country with her family where there are lots of horses

On the first day at Meg’s new school, she meets a girl named Jill. Jill loves horses as much as Meg does and lives on a horse farm. Jill talks with her mother and asks if Meg and another friend can come over and see their horses. Her mother agrees. When Meg arrives, she is thrilled to learn about the horses and their unique names. By the end of the visit, the three girls have forged a bond of friendship centered around their love of horses. The girls decide to form a group called the Pony Scouts. This special club will be open to anyone who loves horses as much as they do

Pony Scouts: Pony Crazy is a great read for children who are passionate about horses. The author, an avid equestrienne herself, makes it easy to relate to Meg and her friends. The illustrations are delightful and tie in well with the text. Overall, this is an enjoyable book for horse lovers just getting the hang of reading.
