There is a horse that black and really beautiful. His name is Black Beauty.This story is written like a horse is talking to us.He was heard by his mother, “he should always be a good horse, and human will like you”.Presently, he left from his mother, he work hard for people who need him.Although he can’t say anything because of he is a horse, he work for human like pulls carriage. He has to do if he doesn’t like to do but he still works hard. I was greatly touched by his effort. I could read this book like I am horse. I think this book is really nice.

It was OK . I found it really hard to understand sometimes. I finally gave up and watched the movie. It's a sweet story but it has too many details.

Audiobook - wery well read - interesting to listen to Black Beautys reflections as he is sold to different owners that treat him sometimes good, sometimes very horrible. There's some really good moral lessons on how to connect to horses. And a humorous defense on resting on the Lords Day - Sunday :)

Review by

Black Beauty, a horse, tells about his life beginning as a young colt in the English countryside. Each chapter teaches a moral lesson on topics such as kindness, sympathy, and understanding, all related to the treatment of horses. Black Beauty describes his hard life pulling cabs in London as well as the end of his life and retiring in the country. Although this is a children's novel, the book inspired other works about the cruel treatment of horses and other animals. This is a sad, yet sweet story about the hard life of a horse. I would recommend it to others. It is a true classic and will continue to be loved by generations to come, making us aware that animals have thoughts and feelings too. Children who love animals, especially horses should read this book.
