Description
The Quincy the Horse Books, for K-4, appeal to children who love animals in general and horses in particular. In the second book, Quincy Moves to the Desert, Quincy and his friend Beau leave the comforts of home and go on a big trip across the US in a huge horse van. Quincy has doubts about the trip at first, but Beau explains that they are going West where there are "Trails as far as a horse can see." Quincy is soon soaking up the sights and learns to his amazement, that "Horses are everywhere." On the trip, Quincy sees all the jobs horses can do and dreams about his own possibilities. The trip becomes a journey of self-discovery for Quincy who also learns something important about himself. Full of energy and imagination, the beautifully illustrated book includes a map of the US with nine highlighted states. Author Camille Matthews encourages young readers to explore, along with Quincy, the joy and excitement of learning new things. Michelle Black again provides striking illustrations. She successfully alternates soothing still life images, sensitive depictions of Quincy's emotions, and dramatic paintings of action. The Quincy the Horse Books are also an excellent choice for children who are bridging the gap between picture books and chapter books.
