Black Beauty tells the story of the horse's own long and varied life, from a well-born colt in a pleasant meadow to an elegant carriage horse for a gentleman to a painfully overworked cab horse. Throughout, Sewell rails--in a gentle, 19th-century way--against animal maltreatment. Young readers will follow Black Beauty's fortunes, good and bad, with gentle masters as well as cruel. Children can easily make the leap from horse-human relationships to human-human relationships, and begin to understand how their own consideration of others may be a benefit to all. (Ages 9 to 12)-

This children's book is sweet. It is from the perspective of a horse and all he goes through from the beginning of life to the end. At times it can be a tear jerker.

A classic tale, slightly toned down and put into text a younger reader will appreciate; a good way to hedge your child into the classics, which all children should learn to love and appreciate.

A beautifully told story of a horse told from the horses point of view. Starts soon after birth and follows the horses life through to old age. A timeless treasure. A great read aloud.

My 4 and 5 year old kids liked reading this with their dad. There were some depressing and mean parts of the book that were a little too young for them. It was an enjoyable story for them though.

Written from the perspective of a horse, this is a strange and innovative children's book. A classic, on the forefront of the fight for animal rights. Has very few hidden themes for the adult reader looking for insights into children. No children in the book.

This is the third time I have read this book. It's amazing how much I remembered. Read it when I was a child, read it to my children and just now. This delightful story depicts both the positive and negative treatment of horses by humans who love, care and understand them, know no better, don't care, or use them for their own purposes. At times it's sad and at others it's a warm, fuzzy read.

If your child or kid loves horses, then I'm sure they'll love this book. It is in fantastic condition except it has a name that was erased in the inside of the front cover. Someones name was in it but it got erased. You can still see the name a little bit.
