PreS-Gr 3–Horse and Buggy are friends who share many adventures. In this story, Horse tries to go skateboarding without the right gear. When Horse shows off his skateboard, Buggy asks right away if he has a helmet. Horse does, but he doesn’t like it. “It hurts my head.” Buggy explains that he can adjust it, which Horse does. Then, he’s off! As Horse shows Buggy some moves on the skateboard, he falls and hurts his hands; Buggy gives him gloves. Horse goes all out doing twists and turns, and each time he falls, Buggy suggests he adds another piece of protective gear. Finally, Horse heads to the pool to rest and heal his banged-up body. This delightful and humorous story shows unlikely best friends working together as a team. Beginning readers will have fun following Horse around several spreads in active illustrations that pair well with the friends’ conversation. Horse and Buggy, with their white, black, and gray colors, stand out against the orange and yellow backgrounds.
VERDICT A great addition to any children’s library collection.
