Justin Morgan Had a Horse | [Marguerite Henry]

Justin Morgan Had a Horse

In the early years of our country, a poor school teacher, Justin Morgan, receives a horse and her tiny colt in payment for some work. He wishes he had been given money instead. Hoping that he might sell both horses for a fair price, he asks his student, Joel, to break in the colt. To his surprise, young Joel soon discovers that this small, brown creature has special abilities: "Bub" can pull more than a team of oxen, and he can run faster than a racehorse.

    "Good story for all ages"

    This was a great little story and brought to life by a great narrator. I love listening to John McDonough. I could imagine each of the characters and exactly what they looked like. I felt like I wanted to hold and hug the young boy so many times throughout the book. And I wanted so much for him to have that little horse! I am not really a horse lover - but I loved this horse story.

    "Excellent audio book!"

    We downloaded this and listened to it for school. The narrator does a wonderful job with the different characters voices, and my son would have listened to the whole 4 hours at one sitting if allowed. I believe this audio version really brought the story to life, and my son still recall alot of details about the story,and it has been several months and many books ago. Highly reccommend.
