I needed a photo of children's books for a power point presentation on dyslexia. Since I couldn't find one that I wanted on the internet, took out some of my old childhood books and took this picture.
Ferdinand the Bull - one of the best children's stories ever written. A classic story about being yourself
Pecos Bill and Other Tales - America's version of folk heroes
Saddlebreds - the history and breed characteristics of the American Saddlebred
Kidnapped - Robert Louis Stevenson's book of adventure and self-discovery. It's been so long that I only remember the fact that I enjoyed the story. I might purchase the unabridged version and read it again
Arthur and the Recess Rookie - George, an anthropomorphized eight year old moose with dyslexia and social anxiety is teased at recess for being bad at sports.
Black Beauty - The life of a nineteenth century workhorse told as a first person account by the animal. Great book from a literary, historical and human/animal rights prospective. A must read, so long as you don't mind reading about animal maltreatment
Why Don't You Get a Horse, Sam Adams? - The true story of how Sam Adams learned to ride a horse just prior to the end of the revolution - something he had refused to do until his pride as a leader was called into question
