This is the Spanish language version of the Award-winning children's picture book: "PERCY-The Racehorse Who Didn't Like to Run." It is the beautifully written and illustrated story of a thoroughbred colt who was bred to be a great racehorse. He discovers that his true purpose is to help children who can't run or walk. "M.J. Evans' children's picture book, Percy: The Racehorse Who Didn't Like to Run, introduces the subject of therapeutic horsemanship to children in this inspiring story about a racehorse whose purpose was something he had yet to discover. When I opened up to the first page in this awesome book, I was totally blown away by Gaspar Sabater's impressive artwork. The windows of his snow-covered barn shine brightly out onto a bitterly cold and snowy scene, leading the reader to enter through those double doors and catch a first glimpse of that newborn colt. The story captures the first year of a colt's life, and Sabater's artwork follows the four seasons brilliantly. Evans' story will resonate with any kid who feels different and at odds with his parents' and peers' expectations of him, and it introduces the marvels of therapeutic horsemanship to caregivers and kids alike. Perfectly suited for both story time and independent reading by young readers, Percy: The Racehorse Who Didn't Like to Run is most highly recommended." Jack Magnus for Reader's Favorite "An Inspirational and Beautiful Story" "Much of the language in Percy: The Racehorse Who Didn't Like to Run is rich in vocabulary and Gaspar Sabater's full-color illustrations are simple but pleasing. I thought M.J. Evans' message in Percy is beautifully conveyed: be yourself, find your own purpose, but the story was even more than that. This short picture book actually made me cry a little M.J. Evans has figured out how to write beyond a good story to reach out and touch hearts. Highly recommended for children of picture book age, whether horse lovers or not, whether disabled or not. Percy: The Racehorse Who Didn't Like to Run is an inspirational and a beautiful story to read aloud." Reviewed By Donna Gielow McFarland for Readers' Favorite
