    This is such a cute little story about a horse with no horse friends I love that it rhymes and all the characters are little animals a mouse a bunny ducks and What surprised me about this book was the attention to historical detail The setting is in Williamsburg Virginia The language places and jobs are all from the colonial time There is a milliner a town crier a magazine and even a street named Duke of Gloucester Street The author has included a glossary at the end of the book with all the colonial terms she used The glossary is a perfect addition to help students further their understanding of this time period and what life was like I believe the fact the book rhymes would attract students to want to readlisten The rhyming creates a flow that makes the story enjoyable I think the town crier if done in a special voice would also attract students He is my favorite characterA teacher could build on the historical detail in order to find books about historical Williamsburg and the lives of its citizens They could read non fiction books about that time period as well

    This is an adorable story set in Colonial Williamsburg The story centers on an unhappy horse The setting is beautifully illustrated and takes you back to the time of Colonial Williamsburg The town people try to help the horse that has run away from his owner and seems very unhappy They try fixing his horseshoes and taking special care of him One character notices him snuggling with another horse and brings it to everyone’s attention They discover the horse is just lonely and provide him with another horse to be friends with The story shows caring amongst friends The best part of the book is the illustrations The pictures look just like Colonial Williamsburg and make you want to visit the actual place There is also a Glossary in the back of the book that explains each of the jobs and people mentioned in the story I would recommend the book to everyone with children especially if they enjoy history

    A Horse's Tale A Colonial Williamsburg Adventure is a cute picture book with personified animals playing the part of people in Colonial Williamsburg It functions as a way to introduce children to several of the jobs in 18th century America with a bit of the vocabulary while held loosely together through a story about a runaway horse The rhyme is fun and the story is somewhat intriguing if a bit forced Great for a trip to Williamsburg

    Susan Lubner A Horse's Tale A Colonial Williamsburg Adventure Abrams 2008Cute story about a horse who suddenly refuses to work and takes off on a tour of Colonial Williamsburg told in rhyme Lubner uses the story both to instruct about the geography of the town and some of the professions that were practiced there that have since faded out of existence Engaging illustrations and a sense of whimsy make this one to look for ½

    Great book to talk about local history I work in Virginia Storytime tips use the town crier to make a silly yelling voice for the kids Also encourage the kids to make horse trotting noises by clicking their tongues or if too young patting their hands on their knees
