I'm not sure why I was apprehensive when I began this book, but my worries were groundless: these three girls are smart, confident and eminently capable, coming together to resolve real problems in a pragmatic and mature way. They support one another unconditionally and are shown to have both serious and silly moments in their friendships -- just like real girls. They have agency and are taken seriously by the adults around them. In short, they make great role models for their readers. If the rest of the series is like this, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to any child looking for an engaging, exciting and perhaps even inspiring literary adventure.

The Pony Pals books will always be part of what got me into my love of This is the first book in the Pony Pals series by Jeanne Betancourt. . Since the main characters are in 5th grade, I could not tell if this was appropriate for my advanced-reading 7 year old. And so, on her birthday party, we got a pony named Foxy.

I think people who are years old and love horses would enjoy this book series. In this book series, there is always some sort of problem that the Pony Pals a group of 3 friends must solve. The problem could be that a pony is sick or hurt, or it can also be that a Pony Pal has a problem. To solve the problem, the Pony Pals each make a suggestion as to how to solve it, and they choose a solution together. There are 43 books in this series!
At the time of this review there were 38 books in the Pony Pals series, as well as an accompanying six-book series , Pony Pals Super Specials. But Pony Pals is different. Author Betancourt laces her girl-centric, horse-crazed books with tangible emotions, authentic problems and just enough originality to keep them fresh and lively a decade or two down the trail. Ponies on Parade , for example, deals with a fun little art contest. Parents are responsible, kids are sometimes irresponsible and pony care is clear and correct. This series also is interesting because it caters to older chapter book readers. But the characters are all middle school age.
