Justin Morgan Had a Horse

Joel Goss knows that Little Bub is a special colt, even though he's a runt. And when schoolteacher Justin Morgan asks Joel to break the colt in, Joel is thrilled! Soon word about Little Bub has spread throughout the entire Northeast -- this spirited colt can pull heavier loads than a pair of oxen. And run faster than thoroughbreds! This is the story of the little runt who became the father of the world-famous breed of American horses -- the Morgan.
Product Details


Gr 3-6‘With a grandfatherly ease, John McDonough narrates this classic horse story, a Newbery Honor book by Marguerite Henry (Wilcox & Follett, 1945). Listeners are tossed emotionally from high to low as the story of a boy and his love for a special horse unfolds. Justin Morgan, a Vermont schoolmaster in the late 1700's, receives two horses as payment of a debt. Joel Goss, the son in the household where Morgan boards, is with Morgan when the odd colt he calls "Little Bub" is acquired and participates in Bub's training and competitions, with the seemingly impossible goal of someday saving enough money to buy the stalwart runt of a horse. Tracing the history of a famous American horse breed, the Morgan, this quality tape will to please horse lovers and provide satisfying fare for family listeners.‘Frtiz Mitnick, Shaler North Hills Library, Glenshaw, PA
