Bramble and Maggie Give and Take
author: Jessie Haas
illustrator: Alison Friend
Maggie loves introducing her new horse, Bramble, to the neighborhood, the beach, and the backyard. Bramble has fun too, once she is cajoled into participating by a well-timed carrot or two. But when Maggie has to go to school, Bramble is bored and lonely and gets into some trouble. This charming and funny early reader flows at just the right pace for kids who are learning that others don’t always do exactly what you want, but that friends find a way to give and take.
“Portraying human and animal characters empathetically, the narrative features moments of humor as well as insight. . . . Highly satisfying.” — Booklist
