We decided to read this book because we saw it on my friend Sarah's blog.

MAIN EVENTS: Joel Goss and Justin Morgan walked to Farmer Beanes' to get money that he owed. He gave them Ebenezer a big beautiful colt and Little Bub for good measure a small colt. Everyone thought Little Bub was no good. Little Bub can pull better than workhorses and an ox. He could run faster than New York Thoroughbreds. After Justin Morgan passed away Joel lost track of Little Bub. He saw him at an auction but lost getting him.
CONCLUSION: Joel found him many years later pulling a big cart with other horses. He was very sick. Joel bought him and nursed him to health. Joel wanted Little Bub to be in a parade. President Monroe was going to be there. The horse the President was riding got irretated because a bee flew in it's ear so some men took that horse away and out of all the other horses he chose Little Bub. Many people wondered what kind of horse he was. Joel said he is American.
YOU SHOULD READ THIS BOOK BECAUSE: It teaches you, even small things can make big differences. Never judge a book by its cover.
