Happy Birthday, Marguerite Henry!

Today we are having a special birthday celebration, in honor of Marguerite Henry!

Marguerite Henry was born April 13, 1902, and wrote 59 books during her amazing career. She received the Newbery Honor for Justin Morgan Had a Horse and Misty of Chincoteague. She received the Newbery Medal for King of the Wind. She finished her last book, Brown Sunshine of Sawdust Valley, just before her death on November 26, 1997. She was 95 years old. Thank you, Marguerite Henry, for sharing your love of the horse, one of the Lord's most graceful and beautiful creations, with us.

Some authors can touch your childhood and stay with you for a lifetime, and Marguerite Henry is one of those authors. Her books are great read aloud titles for both of our horse unit studies!

Unit Study Adventures
Four Week Study

From a stick horse to a rocking horse, we are introduced to horses at an early age, and continue to be mesmerized by them throughout childhood. This study uses this interest and curiosity to help kids learn about history, science, geography and the care and keep of horses.

In this four-week unit study, your student will learn about horses--the history of horses, science of horses, the various breeds of horses, the basics of caring for a horse, and how horses are used today.

Since the beginning of time, horses have played a role in cultures around the world. History is filled with adventurous stories of horses: Egyptian pharaohs, wars, cowboys, Native Americans-the horse has been an integral part of each moment in history.

There's so much to learn about the horse-anatomy, types and breeds, and horse occupations, as well as the care and keeping of horses. There are art lessons, amazing videos, and fun facts to see and learn along the way.

These beautiful and intelligent animals will take your family on an unforgettable journey from the past to the present, and everywhere in between!
