Lonesome the Little Horse His Mountain Adventure

At our place, everyone is crazy about Lonesome the Little Horse His Mountain Adventure, but I will get to that in a minute. First of all I would like to introduce you to the author of this fabulous book.

Two years ago, I was at the Santa Clarita Cowboy Festival and purchased a book from the Buckaroo Book Shop, it was written by Peggy Sundberg, aka Cowgirl Peg. When I returned this year to the Santa Clarita Cowboy Festival, we were so excited to see what the Buckaroo Book Shop had for us and get another of Cowgirl Peg’s charming and amusing books.

This year we purchased, Lonesome the Little Horse His Mountain Adventure and we actually got to hang out and have a short chat with Cowgirl Peg.Lonesome the Little Horse Not only is Cowgirl Peg an impressive author of incredibly entertaining children’s stories  that offer great character-building messages for young readers, she also tours the United States going from school to school sharing these great stories and messages that kids can really relate to and enjoy.

Why We Love Lonesome the Little Horse His Mountain AdventureLonesome the Little Horse Book

Meanwhile back at the ranch, let me tell you why my young reader loved Lonesome the Little Horse. To start with, it is a horse story, that gave it points right there but she could relate on a child’s level to the book’s message about the trials and tribulations of having or not having friends and making poor choices. This book was Cowgirl Peg’s first book and was based on a true story. The lessons brought away from this book include friendship/bullying and actions vs. consequences. Cowgirl Peg’s book is used nationally during “Red Ribbon” Drug Awareness week.  Lonesome the Little Horse is great way to discuss with young readers about a very vital topic that is not always easy to explain to younger children. At our place this book is read over and over and it even caught the attention of our beloved potbelly pig. He actually sat down and listened to the entire story. Even pigs like Lonesome the Little Horse.Lonesome the Little Horse

On a final note, I need to mention the art work in this book. Pat Wiles does an outstanding job at beautifully creating Cowgirl Peg’s characters. All artwork was done in watercolors, and if you have ever done any watercolor painting you know what a challenge it can be. My hat is definitely off to these 2 amazing ladies. I would love to hear your comments about this book or any other great children’s stories, thanks for riding along today. Until Next Time Happy Trails.
