- Quick fun read by Sofia Marie of Teens Live for Jesus on 12/20/2016
Typical Ellie: "I dream horses. I don't just dream about horses. I dream up horses so real I can smell horse. Horse is the best scent in the whole world. They could put that stuff into perfume and make a fortune."
4-th grader Ellie James dreams of and prays about having her own horse. But not just any horse. She dreams of a black stallion with which she'll surely win the Hamilton Royal Horse Show. So when a scrawny pinto comes into her life, she helps it, but doesn't think much about it. But can it be that God has more in store for her than she has ever dreamed?
I found this to be a fun quick read. Through the story, Ellie learns that God's plans aren't ours and that sometimes prayers get answered in a way we did not expect.
I recommend "Horse Dreams" to Christian kids and tweens who love horses.
