On the 7th Day of Christmas my Librarian got me to read...
EVERYTHING BUT THE HORSE
By Holly Hobbie
Everything But the Horse written by Holly Hobbie, is a wonderful memory of Hobbie's own girlhood. After moving from her close knit city neighborhood to a house in the country with no electricity and an outhouse, Hobbie falls in love with horses. She longs for her own and is certain that on her birthday the surprise in the barn is just what she is hoping for.
This is a sweet story with wonderful illustrations.
