Every so often, I fall in love with a book. It’s a long time between books that I love. One has landed in my inbox to read online and I have a copy on my desk. The book is The Magnificent Land of the Multi-Colored Horses.

The book is written by Ken Barry and illustrated by Patti Barry—two very talented people! They are expecting their first multiracial grandchild. The story is about a lovely land that was the home to beautiful horses of all different colors. They got along and all was well. Then the horses suddenly began to “hang out” only with horses whose colors were the same as theirs. Things got pretty tense between the different groups. You will have to read the book to see what happens!

The Magnificent Land of the Multi-Colored Horses is targeted for preschool through fourth grade children, but I think this story should be in every home and library. It’s for every age. The writing is clear, yet the descriptions of the horses are absolutely lovely. The illustrations are simple, yet they are precisely what they need to be, loving and adorable, and yes, still for every age.

You can get The Magnificent Land of the Multi-Colored Horses on Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/dp/0692541543. We also carry them at the Project RACE online store at: www.projectrace.com/store, where your contribution will benefit Project RACE, so that we can afford to carry out our mission statement and offer wonderful books to you like The Magnificent Land of the Multi-Colored Horses.
