"The Night Horses" by Anaka Jones {Book Review}

Book Description:

The Night Horses follows the animals’ daily lives. Each morning, the horse herd takes their breakfast at the hay feeder. Mulling around, they exchange gossip and share their plans for the day. There’s May, an old mare whose giddy-up spirit fuels her energetic personality. She wants to challenge Cloud to a race even though she is three times his age. Frisco and Bella are an inseparable married couple, and plenty of young foals timidly hide behind their mothers’ legs amongst the group.

After a long day of work, the horses clean up, head to their stalls for dinner, and wait in the barn until their owners head back to the  house. With humans out of the picture, the horses get busy creating their own rural night life, effectively turning the farm into their own little three-ring circus.

About the Author, Anaka Jones:

Anaka Jones is a 12-year-old girl in the sixth grade who was born and raised in  the rural area outside of Ann Arbor, Michigan, where she lives with her parents, two older brothers, two dogs, a lizard and a frog. Riding, grooming and maintaining horses is one of her favorite pastimes.

Anaka pens "The Night Horses", a fantastic tale about horses who "play" while the owners are away, with personalities for each horse and full of humor. While you can tell the writing is from a 12 year old, to me it actually made the book much better for children as they are able to relate to it in their own words. My niece loved the book, and I loved the beautiful illustrations that shows the night is/can be fun and not always scary.

I give "The Night Horses" a 5 star rating.
