A large therapy horse has penned a small picture book for children ages 4-8 reminding them of the importance of their our loving hearts.
Called ''Tales of a Wonder Horse: The Birthday' the 25-page paperback tells the true story of Velvet, a mental health therapy horse now 18 hands tall who was very ill as a foal. Hospitalized at a horse hospital and subject to many helpers who worked to heal him, Velvet learned to understand feelings and the importance of compassion.
The book is one of several available as part of the outreach services of Team Velvet Inc., a non-mounted horse therapy nonprofit organization in Flemington, NJ. Told from the standpoint of the horse himself, the picture book explains to children their importance in the world and the wonder of having a loving heart.
Paperback books are available for a $15 contribution to Team Velvet (plus $2 postage if you need it mailed to you.).
