Bramble the horse and her devoted girl, Maggie, face a major snowstorm in their fourth adventure.

The sky is white, the air is cold, and snowflakes are falling, tickling Bramble’s back. By bedtime, Maggie and her family are ready for the storm: they’ve shopped for supplies, covered Bramble’s hay with a tarp, and filled the bathtub with extra water. But Bramble is too excite

The fourth book in this charming series about a young girl and her equine friend.
As a snowstorm approaches, Maggie’s family prepares for the long haul. When the snowstorm arrives, Bramble escapes from the barn and goes out for a frolic in the snow. Afterwards, the family and neighbors help each other dig out and get back to normal.
This is the fourth book in the series featuring Maggie and her horse, Bramble. This is an easy to read chapter book perfect for beginning readers who are horse lovers. The gouache paintings are lovely. There is plenty of white paper that will not

Bramble and Maggie: Snow Day is a cute book about a girl and her horse. The writing is geared toward young readers and the length of the sentences are short and sweet. The size of the font is big enough and the illustrations provide clues to the writing. There are too many different words for this to be considered a controlled vocabulary book, but it is still a good book to use for an easy reader or transitional chapter book reader.

When I was young I would have loved this, so rounded up. Bramble isn't just any pony, she's an Icelandic pony with long hair. And what a lovely neighborhood, actually reminds me of the one I'm in now in Missouri except the neighbors actually know each other and all. I don't like the standoffish myob that seems default nowadays, at least in white America. Anyway, darling book, and if they were readily avl to me I'd read the others. ...more

The neighborhood, although spread out, comes together after the snow storm has stopped. Bramble helps out - Maggie rides him to nearby houses to help people open their doors and use their shovels. Rewards are donuts and hot cocoa. Bramble likes donuts!

The charming gouache illustrations bring the family and their surroundings to life.

Early chapter book series about Bramble and Maggie.

My horse loving girls, really liked this book. Tells a story about getting so much snow that the fence is covered, allowing the horse to get out. Which is a good thing because he helps people to get out of their homes.

This book in five words or less: Horses make great pets!
Everyone is getting ready for the big snow storm. Bramble, Maggie’s horse, watches all the activity with curiosity and wonder. Food and water is stockpiled for everyone, even the horse. When all the preparations are made, Maggie puts Bramble in her stall, but she can’t close the door. Bramble pushes through the door later and goes exploring in the snow storm. Maggie is upset the next morning when she can’t find Bramble but she comes back an
I'm trying to read a few more easy readers so that my granddaughters can read to me. This one seems to be a bit too easy for the older one, but it might be a fun read aloud for a one-time sitting. These two characters are new to me, but Bramble the horse clearly is part of this neighborhood. It reminds me of those small country places where people have a few acres with a few horses and chickens. Snow is on its way, and the family, including Maggie, have to get ready. They need supplies, to fill ...more

This is the newest addition to the Bramble and Maggie series but each book can be read independently of the others or in any order. In a few short chapters and lots of illustrations, this book tells another story of Maggie (a girl) and Bramble (her horse). The snow is falling faster and faster and it looks like a snowstorm is coming! The family and their neighbors get ready for the storm. Meanwhile Bramble is curious about the change in weather. Really sweet story of helping out others. Observan ...more

So inviting and charming! This is my first Maggie and Bramble book and I want to go back and read the first three. The illustrations and book design make this a great choice for early chapter book readers. Dark text on lots of white background and the visual clues and reinforcement aid comprehension. The simple clear sentences are well chosen with many repeating words. The story is fun and interesting, encouraging readers and keeping them turning pages and gaining confidence.
