Grade 3-6-- Danielle Snyder's job title could be "barn gofer," but young horse lovers will probably envy her after reading this photo essay. Full-color photos and a first-person narrative cover a typical day behind the scenes at a harness racing stable. In a friendly, informative style, Danielle explains her chores in the well-run Snyder Stable , communicating her dedication as a member of the family's team. She rides behind a pacer driven by her father/trainer, and she attends a night race that her favorite horse wins. The book succeeds by presenting just enough facts to both inform and interest readers. The photos share the thrill of racing, the hard work involved in caring for the racers, and the tenderness of quiet moments that Danielle shares with the horses. Offer this attractive title to children who want another book like Sonberg's A Horse Named Paris (Bradbury, 1986). --Charlene Strickland, formerly at Albuquerque Public Library , NM
