My Thoughts about The Night Horses

This is a fun book to read, especially with your children. If your children don’t already love horses, they will after reading about a day in the life of a horse. You’d be surprised about what horses do after their owners go to bed…and it’s nothing like you’d expect. But it certainly is fun! So fun, you want to sneak out of the house and join them!

I was surprised to learn that this book was written by a sixth grader. But after thinking about it, Anaka Jones is a perfect storyteller with a wonderful imagination. I would love to read more books by her.

While I’m not sure who the illustrator is, their work is beautiful. The pictures help bring the story to life.

The Night Horses is a quick. easy, and fun read. You won’t be disappointed one bit.

  1. I will have to check this out! My daughter absolutely LOVES horses!

  2. I love books that the whole family can enjoy together. My boys also love horses. Definitely going to look into this one for our summer trip!

  3. I love the premise of this book! My cousin had horses growing up and we would visit every weekend. We always wondered if they did things when we weren’t looking!

  4. I’ve always loved to watch horses but I tend to get scared of them when they get closer because of their size. They are beautiful creatures though.
