A good early reader about the sympathetic Robert the Rose Horse. My five year old is sensitive, so I was watching him very carefully for reactions to the harsher elements of the story: separation from your parents, loosing your nice job, coming across bad guy robbers, etc. He held it together although I could tell he was touched by the story. We just made sure to flip the pages quick enough to discover the good outcomes. All in all a good, eventful story with a happy ending. It's a bit long for a beginner reader, but there's plenty of repetition and overall it's an easy read. It's a memorable story to read again at some point. ( )

This was one of my favorites as a child. I don't know exactly why, as an adult I can see the humor; but I remember it being much better as a child. ( )
