Rosie and Scamper will delight experienced "horsegirls" and dreamy eyed wanna-be's alike. In addition to the good story, you will benefit from the realistic portrayal of taking care of and riding horses. Though it is clear that Rosie and her friends have endless fun riding, there is no young girl jumping on a "wild" stallion and riding into the sunset here.
The book covers three years in the life of Rosie. Through her relationship with her Grandma, family, and friends, she learns lessons about God and how He wants us to act. But even though these important lessons are covered thoroughly, never once is this book dry or boring. Rosie, Grandma, and their good friend and neighbor, Carrie, have fun and exciting experiences, almost always involving horses. Grandma's stories about her childhood are funny and relevant.
Some of the important lessons learned are about dealing with fear, peer pressure, and a beautiful way to better understand what Christ did for us on the cross.
I would recommend this book to any horse lover, young or old!
