Quincy Moves to the Desert Book Review
Quincy is an American Quarter Horse who is going through a lot of changes in his life. In the first Quincy the Horse book, Quincy Finds a New Home, Quincy is sad and lonely because no one takes him out for a ride. When a nice lady comes and takes him to a new barn, at first he is sad and angry at having a new owner and home. However, he soon meets a new friend named Beau and learns that life in the new barn is not so bad after all.  In the second book, Quincy Moves to the Desert, Quincy and Beau ride in a horse trailer all the way from chilly New York to sunny New Mexico. Along the way, they see all kinds of horses doing all kinds of different jobs, and Quincy learns that as an American Quarter Horse, he can do those things too.
The Quincy the Horse books are a delightful series of children's books that are not only entertaining stories, but they teach the reader about dealing with change and a little about horses as well. Author Camille Matthews writes in a sweet and simple style that will appeal to small children. They are beautifully illustrated by Michelle Black, making the books keepsakes that will grace a child's bookshelves for years to come. Plus, the books have received the Mom's Choice Award!
