Bramble and Maggie: Give and Take

giveandtakeWritten by Jessie Haas, Illustrated by Alison Friend

As the two friends Bramble and Maggie continue to get to know each other, (this is the second book in the series) they learn how important it is to “give and take.” Together they explore the neighborhood, the beach, and the backyard. When Maggie goes to school, Bramble, who has a mischievous side, learns what to do while she is away and finds an unexpected companion. Colorful and light-hearted illustrations complete each of the four short stories and help the young reader watch these two grow in friendship and love for each other, as well as taking turns being the boss. This is just a sweet, whimsical book that horse lovers will appreciate and will make horse lovers out of the rest of us. Have some carrots on hand!
