2010 Award
Wonder Horse
( by Emily Arnold McCully, Henry Holt $16.99 Score: )

Giving children stories about the past is an art form and Emily Arnold McCully is one of the best artists in this field. This time she has chosen to write about a former slave who believed that animals needed to be treated with kindness. Although many claimed "Doc" Keys used tricks to make his horse, Jim Keys, able to read, sing, and do math, that was not the case. This true story is based on the big idea that much can be accomplished by people and animals when they are kind, caring, and show patience. 5-8
