Jane loves ponies. Luckily her Grandma Aggie has two. SweetPea is old and gentle. Jane learns how to ride on her. Popcorn -- who was born on the same day as Jane -- is young and energetic.

Jessie Haas is the author of numerous acclaimed books for young people, including Unbroken, which was a Publishers Weekly Best Book, a School Library Journal Best Book, a Parent's Choice Gold Award winner, a Notable Trade Book in the Field of Social Studies, and CCBC Choice. Her most recent novel, Shaper, won a Golden Kite Honor Award.From Booklist:
Gr. 2-4. Perfect for new readers and riders, this early chapter book, printed in large type on spacious pages, follows the friendship between Jane and Popcorn the pony, both born on the same day. Popcorn belongs to Jane's grandmother. Jane lives across the country until her family moves, bringing her closer to Grandma, just as Jane is ready to learn how to ride. In their first horse show, Popcorn turns out to be a bit too rowdy for an inexperienced rider like Jane, but joined by the ever-supportive Grandma, rider and pony head to equestrian camp for the summer to work on their skills. Haas contributes another winning story that's just right for horse-smitten new readers, especially those who know Haas' stories and will recognize familiar ponies, such as Radish, from previous tales. Apple's appealing drawings reinforce the action and show the warmth and determination that Jane and her pony share. Gillian Engberg
