Justin Morgan and the Big Horse Race is an exciting, action filled book about Justin and his home on a farm in the hills of Vermont. When not working, Justin spends his time in the fields of tall grass running and playing. One day, he meets two new racehorses, Sweepstakes and Silvertail.  Justin is fast, but is he as fast as his two new friends? See who will win the race! This book is available in hardback for $16.95.

Justin Morgan and the Big Horse Race, is 32 pages in length and written at a 2nd grade reading level.

This book is truly a gem. The story was endearing, and the colorful drawings are spectacular. My 10-year-old daughter absolutely loves horses and was very excited to read this book. She fell in love with Justin and his friends. Here is what she had to say, “Justin Morgan is a horse with a lot of spirit. One day Justin Morgan was in the pasture when he saw two new horses. The two new horses walked up to Justin and said, ‘We have heard you are the fastest horse in Vermont. We are race horses and wish to have a race with you.’ Justin agreed. The next day they raced. Justin races the two horses separately. I won’t tell you who wins. You will have to read the book for yourself.”
