Cowgirl Kate and Cocoa – Horse in the House (By Erica Silverman) – Cowgirl Kate wakes up to find her horse Cocoa in her bedroom. The young girl needs to get the horse back to the barn before her parents find out. But before they leave, Cocoa wants to explore the house. Cocoa makes a mess in the living room, finds the bathroom too small but loves the refrigerator. When they get back to the barn, Kate explains all the good things about the barn and why her horse should stay there, instead of in the house. But Cocoa explains that the house has two things he loves – Kate and the refrigerator. The whole series of Cowgirl Kate and Cocoa books offer sweet stories of friendship and would be perfect for young girls who love horses. Recommended for ages 6 to 9, they are great young reader books and beginning chapter books.
The book recommendations included on this website are books that my daughter Ally, now age 6, and I have read and enjoyed together. I recommend the books that stand out to me as excellent children’s books for writing, illustrations, originality, story and characters. Ally and I hope you enjoy them too!
