This review is from: Charlie the Horse (Kindle Edition)
In her book "Charlie the Horse", author Deanie Humphrys-Dunne invites her reading audience to a close-up view of the world of champion horse racing. She does so cleverly, as the inside story of breeding and training horses is told from the point of view of a champion racehorse.
The story is lovely, the information fascinating, and the values imparted are relevant to readers, young and old. Charlie is a champion racer, but he is also a champion of fundamental values such as work ethic, commitment to task, persistence and tenacity, and integrity and self-respect that are manifested in the effort to excel and be the best one can be. Another set of values that are thematic in the book is evident in the respect, appreciation, and gratitude exhibited by Charlie, who seeks the wisdom and prizes the mentorship of the retired racehorse General Quick. Another winner from Deanie Humphrys-Dunne!
