"Both my daughters love Stablemates series. This is a really nice chapter book to help them start reading on their own. You can read it to younger kids too and they will enjoy it, but for me it was the draw that made my dauhter to actualy want to read on her own." Evelina said.
"After being very disappointed with many early chapter books due to inappropriate content for kids, I am even more pleased with the entire Stablemates series. The stories are gentle, illustrations are beautiful, and kids can't wait to read them. They are great first chapter books, as there is not too many paragraphs, and a picture on every page. They are also very nice hardcover books for the price. Highly recommended!" 497 ed said.
"My daughter loves horses and these books are at the perfect reading level for her. She is in 2nd grade but struggles with her reading skills so age range/skill level on this book I would guess for an advanced kindergartener, average 1st grader, and lower level 2nd grader. There are chapters in these books which makes my daughter feel like she's reading a "big kid" book and not a "baby" learning to read book. Most of the words are easy reading with an occasional big word that she has to work at to read or I have to help with. If your child is really working hard to read the book the chapters also give you an ideal place to stop and put it down. I would guess these books would mainly be written for girls and if you have a daughter who loves horses its a great tool to interest her in reading as well." doglover said.
"My daughter cannot get enough of these books I have to read her a horse book every night, at least this Breyer Stablemates collection is tolerable for an adult." Ward F. said.
"Great story for my granddaughter who has the barrel racing bug. Not only a good story but it has information on the barrel pattern and actually doing a barrel race." Montana Mild said.
