Read full description of the books:
It's a nice storybook of friendship for three girls (all 5th graders) and the bond they form with each other and each of their ponies. In this story there is a new girl that comes to town that stays with one of the Pony Pals while her parents are gone doing other things. Although this girl CAN ride she hates anything and everything having to do with ponies. The Pony Pals don't like her or her attidute but try and be friends with her anyhow. Not until they are out riding and get lost in a winter storm do the three friends decide that there is something to why the new friend feels the way she does. They talk softer to her and eventually she tells them of a time when she was little and a horse nearly killed her then they understand and help her face her fears. In the end they all become friends and the girl over comes her fear. This was a good life lesson book for children reading this one because everyone has a reason behind the way they act.
It is a chapter book of the "Pony Pals" series. My now grown daughter LOVED these books as a child (she begin to read them when she was about 8) and read most of all of the ones in the series. I found her copy of many of them and decided to try and read them to see what they were like. You can read these as stand alone books; but the reader would understand and relate to the girls better if you read them in order. If you have to miss one 'here and there' it's not big deal; you won't be lost but just get the full effect better in order.
As a mother reading these books I really appreciate the way Ms Betancourt has written about the girls putting their heads together and trying to work out problems together and coming up with solutions themselves. As the young adults they are becoming it gives the girls in the story the opportunity to think things through. Which helps readers know they could do the same thing to try and find solutions as the young adults they will be in a few years. Thus far in each of the books I've read of this series the girls have tried to come up with solutions to problems and that is such a good thing to teach children

Read information about the authorWhen I was growing up I never thought of being an author. I was a terrible speller and didn't want to write any more than I had to. I wanted to be a tap dancer when I grew up. After a few years of teaching junior high and high school, I wrote my first novel. It was a surprise to discover that I liked making up stories and writing them down. I liked it so much that eventually I stopped teaching and became a fulltime writer.
Besides novels for children and young adults, I've also told stories by writing scripts for television and the movies.
I live on the top floor of a sixteen-story building near the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. From my apartment I have a view of Manhattan that includes the Empire State Building and the Plaza Hotel. In my free time I draw, paint, and read. I still love to dance.
Some people think that a writer's life is lonely. But when I'm writing a story I don't feel lonely because I am actively involved with lots of interesting people – the characters in my books. I love knowing that some day readers will get to know these characters, too. If you are one of my readers I hope you have as much enjoyment in reading my stories as I have writing them.
