My favourite kids book, Orginally my Mother's book which she gave to me when I was young to read. It will forever stay a fave of mine and I love the beautiful illustions and drawings. For a book that was made in the 60's before I was even born to be one of my most beloved children books is really special. A fantastic read for all ages and kids would love to read this

Eight year old Deborah is desperate for a pony. Her desire is fuelled each day as she hops on the school bus and sees ponies in a nearby field; her return from school rewards her with the same sight.

Her parents have told her ponies are hard work and although she knows they could be, she is desperate.

Written for the elementary school set, A Pony for the Winter tells the story of Deborah's wish for a pony. When her wish comes true and she has a pony to care for, she soon learns the meaning of hard work. It's a wonderful tale that shows just what you can accomplish, no matter how young, when you put your mind to it.

I was absolutely ga-ga over horses as a kid. The Charleston Chew candy bar had a contest where you could win a horse - I schemed and dreamed of keeping it in our very suburban garage! A Pony for the Winter fed that dream big time! I never won the contest though. :-(

It's been well over 30 years since I last read this book, but I remember it being one of my favorites as a young girl. In particular, I remember one Christmas eve when I read it several times in succession because I was so excited I couldn't sleep.

This was probably the first book that I absolutely loved. I can't believe it was published in the 60's! I thought I had discovered a new best seller in 1996. Better 32 years late than never!

It was fun to read this "chapter book" to a grandson who is learning to read (and to picture settings and characters in his mind) and a granddaughter who loves horses. :)

This was one of my all time favorite kids books. Out of print now, but I have heard it is in or going to be in controlled re-release? Absolutely charming!

This was one of my favorite books as a child and my battered copy proves how much it was loved and frequently read. Lovely illustrations and a touching story for horselovers.
