The Year of the Horse
January 31, 2014
"The Year of the Horse tells a charming story and introduces kids to Chinese culture and art. It also offers message about friendship, bravery, and accomplishment. [Jennifer Wood's illustrations] are delightful and infuse The Year of the Horse with a lot of appeal and charm. Both my children love the book and keep reading it over and over again."
- Marin Mommies
"No wonder the Year of the Horse celebrates their derring-do. I loved the positive 'can-do' message the book conveyed, and though our kids are not going to be sent on such a mission, they'll enjoy the vicarious experience and understand the pride that Lao Shi and Hannah's parents feel about the pair's major accomplishment."
- Good Reads with Ronna
"The bright illustrations reflect the illustrator Jennifer Wood's animation background and highlight the Chinese landscape, wildlife and architecture."
