Black Beauty by Anna Sewell... to think that this book inspired the world to consider animal rights... amazing. And I first read it simply because it was about a horse!

One of the best loved animal stories ever written, the dramatic and heartwarming Black Beauty is told by the magnificent horse himself, from his idyllic days on a country squire's estate to his harsh fate as a London cab horse.

Down the Rabbit Hole: The Diary of Pringle Rose by Susan Campbell Bartoletti
Rabbit Hole, Books, Dear America, Campbell Bartoletti, Fourteen Year Old Pringle, Roses, Pringle Rose, Chicago
Down the Rabbit Hole, Chicago, Illinois, 1871: The Diary of Pringle Rose (Dear America). I'm a fan of Susan Campbell Bartoletti, and this story is fast-paced and interesting with great characters, but it's not nearly as good as her other books. There's too much going on at once; too many coincidences and loose ends; and the ending is abrupt and disappointing.
"Dear America: Down the Rabbit Hole, The Diary of Pringle Rose" by Susan Campbell Bartoletti: It is 1871 in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and fourteen-year-old Pringle Rose, still grieving from the death of her parents, takes her brother Gideon, who has Down syndrome, escapes from her uncle and aunt, taking a train to Chicago--but disaster seems to follow her there.

I Want to be a Cowgirl by Jeanne Willis is a story about a little city girl who doesn’t want to grow up to have tea parties. cook, clean or sew. She doesn’t want to be a girly girl at all, she wants to be a cowgirl. I love the sentiment in this book, how adamant she is about knowing what she wants and the lengths she goes to be a cowgirl using bananas as six shooters, and turning her dad’s rug into chaps! I like the message about following your own dreams not what society tells us we should be,
