5 Star Review by Vernita Naylor (Reader’s Favorites): “I highly recommend Charlie the Horse by Deanie Humphrys-Dunne because children will be fully engaged while reading it. They will enjoy following Charlie and his adventures, and they will learn various types of lessons like doing your best no matter how you feel, as Charlie was told by his mentor, retired racehorse and legend in his own right, General Quick. Additionally, in reading Charlie the Horse, children will become involved and parents can gauge their understanding as they are asked questions about the story, which will in turn enhance their learning experience.”

Review by Sarah Mazor: “Teachers and librarians ought to introduce kids to Deanie Humphrys-Dunne’s lovely books. Ms. Dunne’s books are beautifully written and convey wonderful life lessons to children and their caregivers.  Highly recommended!”

5 Star Review by Jim Lyons (Goodreads): “The first in a series of short books that are ideal for young (5-7) auditory learners.”

Review by Net Galley (Reviewer 348419): “Lovely book. My son loved me reading it to him. The targeted audience. It was easy to read and well written.”

5 Star Review by Patricia Daly-Lipe: “Charlie the Horse’ is a wonderful book not only for children but adults as well to learn about the road to the racetrack by thoroughbred horses. It is especially appropriate now that we are in the Triple Crown and summer racing season. Beautifully illustrated by the author’s sister, Holly, it is lovely book to keep forever in your library for enjoyment and reference.”

5 Stars Review by Ellie: “My name is Ellie and I’m 12. I really liked this book. I liked reading about the relationships between the horses, but I mostly liked it as an athlete. I’m an athlete just like Charlie (except I do gymnastics, not running), and I really liked the message that competing takes lots of practice, that it’s okay if you don’t always win, that you need to try your best and that sometimes you can have challenges that you just need to find a solution for (like blinkers); it doesn’t mean you have to give up.”

Review by Anne H., Bookseller (NetGalley): “Charlie the Horse is a coming-of-age tale with important lessons for all kids. The story follows Charlie from when he is a little foal until he is a great racehorse. There are important characters which help him along the way. The story also has a great lesson in the end about staying humble.”

5 Stars Review by Cheryl L. (NetGalley): “A well written lovely tale that tells all about what being a racehorse is like, this coming straight from the horse’s mouth of course (pun intended). For kids who love horses and animals, this is a cute and fun way to learn about their favorite animal. A lovely little educative package with great illustrations.”

Review by Maja V. (Net Galley): “This was such a lovely short story that I think the kids will really like to read about, especially since it’s about a horse’s journey to becoming the best racehorse. Also, the illustrations were quite nice and added that something special to the story. I would definitely recommend others to give this book a try.”

5 Star Review by Yossi Lapid: “Racehorse Magic – A Five Stars Read! I have limited experience with horses but I thoroughly enjoyed this captivating tale of hard work, perseverance and well-deserved success. The author does a great job of conveying some timeless messages about setting-goals and overcoming challenges through a highly entertaining, richly informative and perfectly paced story. The book is divided into easy-to-follow chapters and each chapter reflects a step in the evolution of the main character, Charlie the Horse. Told in a charming first-person voice, the story offers a unique glimpse into the life of a thoroughbred from the horse’s point of view. Readers will easily feel the horse’s emotions of fear and thrill as he struggles with difficult situations and overcomes them. Beautifully crafted illustrations complement the story. A splendid book that will delight readers of all ages.”

5 Star Review by K Nhin: “Love it when authors marry lessons with a storyline. And this book does not disappoint.”

Review by Patricia S. (NetGalley): “I sat down one night and started reading this book. I was looking for a story for my great niece. I really liked the way the author took us from Charlie being a foal up to his first big race. The moral of the story for me and I think for your children is that working hard and setting goals is a good thing. It also shows that if you persevere you will succeed. You young readers will love the story that Charlie tells us in his own words. I would get your kids to read it this summer.”

5 Star Review by Ellen (Goodreads): “It was amazing, A must-read book for parents and children. A wonderful tale that teaches children that teamwork, perseverance and determination will help you achieve anything you want in life.”

5 Star Review by Theodore J. Cohen: “Leaving home is the least of Charlie’s concerns. Overcoming his fears in preparing for the races into which he is entered present far greater challenges. Another horse by the name of The General–a mentor of sorts–guides Charlie, encouraging him never to give up, regardless of what life throws at him. This lesson, above all, is probably one of the most important “takeaways” a child can derive from reading this book (not that more than a few adults might benefit as well!). That the story is about a horse only enhances the book’s value for young readers, as do the beautiful illustrations by Holly Humphrys-Bajaj. Five STARS all the way.”

Review by Reviewer 98309 (Net Galley): “My daughter loved Charlie the Horse. We enjoyed reading it together. I give it five stars and highly recommend it.”

5 Star Review by Hagit Oron: “What a beautiful story! The plot follows Charlie the horse from the moment he’s born until he is a fully grown racing horse. The story is told via Charlie’s eyes and we share his thoughts, fears, and excitements. The black and white illustrations are artistic and delicate. They enrich the story. Any child with love to horses will surely enjoy this delightful story of Charlie the horse.”

Review by Denise W. (NetGalley): “Charlie the Horse is a very good children’s book that teaches cause and effect, sacrifice and gain, perseverance and hope. This is a great story to give children a chance to see how decisions, even small ones, can impact the outcome of your life.”

5 Star Review by Jim Lyons (Goodreads): “The first in a series of short books that are ideal for young (5-7) auditory learners.”

Review by Jessica Dickstein, Author: “A wonderful story for both adults and children alike! Charlie is so likeable as a character and I found myself connecting with him as he trains for racing at the Sweetbrier Racing Stable. This is a story about the power of determination. Charlie knows what he wants and is persistent in achieving his goal.”

Review by Author Virginia Wright: “An adorable story, especially for horse lovers.”

Review by Rhonda Patton, Author: “An inspiring book for any child. It was a fun experience reading this book.”
