Readers will make new friends as they learn about colonial America.
Garrick the Gardenerís horse is sad, so the town of Williamsburg rallies to try to cheer him up! Margaret the Milliner sews a counterpane for the horseís back, and Ben the Blacksmith checks the horseshoes to make sure they arenít on too tight. The grocer mixes oats and sugar, the apothecary stirs a special brew, and the music teacher even sings a happy song. But nothing lifts the horseís spirits until they all discover that friendship is the best cure.
A fun way for children to learn about life in colonial times, A Horseís Tale includes a glossary that highlights period words and terms and features the adorable characters first created as plush toys by Merrymakers, Inc. Young readers will take a step back in time to Colonial Williamsburg as they meet a group of friends they will want to make their own.
