cover Cattle Drive
by Jacqueline Ward
These horses obviously hadn't watched cattle drives on TV or in real life. When they first heard the term "cattle drive," they thought the cattle might be riding in a truck. Their participation in the cattle drive was a funny mess. Children can identify with the horses' need to be introduced gradually to new experiences. In each of Ward's books, she helps children see the need to consider an animal's feelings. Each page is summarized with a line of large easy-to-read text for beginning readers.
