Adrian Simcox Does NOT Have a Horse

If you’ve spent time with kids that aren’t your own, and watched how they interact, and then you read this book, and you will see the truthful way this book represents real kids. Real kids who struggle with truth and kindness and poverty. How kids talk to and about other people. How sometimes parents don’t get it, and sometimes they do. How kids can figure out really complex things like compassion and symbols. Marcy Campbell and Corinna Luyken have created something masterful in Adrian Simcox Does NOT Have a Horse.
