Horse Tales Literacy offers two school-based literacy programs for elementary aged children:

~ FIRST GRADE: 6 & 7 Year Olds

The program introduces children in first grade to reading their very own hardcover books.

Each child receives two hardcover Walter Farley books, Little Black, A Pony and Little Black Goes to the Circus, to start or add to their own personal library. The program also provides an exciting event where children learn about and interact with live horses! Every child even has the opportunity to read to a horse!


~ FOURTH-FIFTH GRADE: 9 to 11 Year Olds

The fourth-fifth grade program continues the legacy of reading by providing all the children with their own copy of The Black Stallion, a universally recognized children’s classic. Children are also introduced to the critically acclaimed 1979 movie of the same name. The program concludes with an interactive experience with live horses! This highly popular and effective program can be used with classes in fourth or fifth grade.
