To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Ich nutze dieses Büchlein, um Nachhilfe zu geben (7. Klasse Realschule), und es ist prima. Nur wenige "seltene" Vokabeln, dafür eine nette Geschichte in grammatikalisch einfacher Form (hauptsächlich simple present) und kurzen Sätzen erzählt. Sehr zu empfehlen!
*spoilers* My 7-year-old did not like this book, pointing that the main character Penny (in other words) did not really care about the pony given to her and cared more about the kitten being rescued at the end. Because of this, Penny came across as somewhat selfish and apathetic to my daughter from the beginning. Throughout the majority of the story, Penny seems indifferent about the pony, avoiding him in the yard before he runs away and being more affectionate to the kitten that she and her friends helped find. These are observations my child made, and the lack of empathy towards the pony is why she did not like this book.
I almost always have a few students that are just crazy about horses. I realized recently that my easy reader and easy chapter book collection lacked any horse books. This is one I bought to remedy that. It is predictable and I find the illustrations to be slightly strange. I think maybe the heads are too big for the bodies or something. . . it's hard to put my finger on but they just seem off. But I predict this book will be a hit anyway. It's a good length for a reader who is just about ready to tackle a chapter book but a little leary of picking a longer book. The book is only 33 pages long but broken into 5 chapters. Each chapter has only 3-5 pages. There are illustrations on most pages so the actual text is even less. I think it may appeal to some of my slightly older, struggling readers that love horses. It is not too babyish for a 8-9 year old although clearly aimed at slightly younger kids.
