" Quincy is a red horse that finds himself unsure of his new home and owner. Good story about change and growth. Very nice illustrations. " said.

" A wonderful story about finding a new home, and learning to accept yourself for who you are. Quincy is a horse who is purchased by a new owner. He wants to earn ribbons and jump like the other horses, but his legs aren't tall enough. An older horse explains why the owner bought Quincy, and Quincy then is happy in his new home. " said.

" Beautifully painted pictures depict the life of Quincy better than the words do. The thoughts and the expressions of Quincy are overstated, but there is a good deal of information about horses, their lives, and horseback riding. The story ends abruptly, but apparently this is a series, so it is assumed that the next will pick up where this one left off. " said.

"If you ever had to move from one house to another, how did you feel? Quincy is a little horse who is the color of a new penny. He lives on a farm with a red barn and loves to ride the trails in the forest with the owner of the farm and his children. When spring comes, Quincy waits for someone to put on his saddle, but no one comes except the neighbor man to fill Quincy’s water tank. Finally a man and a woman come with a white horse trailer to tell Quincy that he has a new owner and a new home. They take him to a large barn with many stalls where he makes friends with another horse named Beau. This barn has an outdoor arena that is full of jumps. Quincy watches other horses jump the jumps and win lots of ribbons. But he doesn’t know how to jump jumps or win ribbons. What is he going to do?
Horses can be extremely gorgeous creatures, and most children dearly love them. Author Camille Matthews uses a horse to tell an endearing story about change and growth that is both exciting and reassuring for youngsters, who will also enjoy looking at the striking, full-page oil paintings by illustrator Michelle Black. Between the two, Camille and Michelle have done just about everything with horses but say that the creation of the Quincy the Horse series is their favorite project. Quincy Finds a New Home, which was a 2010 Mom’s Choice Gold Award recipient, is a tale not just of horses but also of love, security, and wisdom. I found it quite a delightful book.
" said.

" Beautiful story, beautiful pictures, beautiful message. I admit it. I picked it up because there is a horse on the cover. But this book can be read as more than just a horse book as it is also about moving home and feeling okay about it. " said.

" A great message for kids with delightful illustrations. More at http://equus-blog.com/quincy-the-hors... " said.
