by Jeanette Winter
Young Charles Russell wanted to be a cowboy, so just two weeks shy of his sixteenth birthday, the determined Charlie
boarded a train heading to the frontier. There, in 1880, in the land of buffalo, Indians, and open prairie, Charlie found his home.
And there he became a painter-but not just any painter.
Today Charles M. Russell is considered one of the greatest artists of the American West and one who opened its door to so many.

Gramma sits in the sun parlor in her wheelchair. When Donnie visits, they have a ritual. "Where shall we walk today?"
Gramma asks. Donnie chooses one of their favorite paths. Today it is along the seashore. He settles down on a
hassock next to the wheelchair, and off they go on their imaginary walk. Gramma and Donnie enjoy their walk every
step of the way, and so will the young listeners who join them.

Donnie's Gramma gets around in a wheelchair, but through the magic of imagination, the two of them walk to the beach, listen, feel,
and smell the sea; identify prints in the sand; and admire the wildlife. No big deal is made of Gramma's condition, nor is the reason
for it given; what comes through is total acceptance and intergenerational love. A warm and wonderful story for helping children
understand aging... —School Library Journal, 1994
Donnie and his grandmother, who is in a wheelchair, take an imaginary walk on the beach. Realistic, softly colored watercolor and
pencil illustrations juxtapose the dreamers and their vivid imaginings on opposing pages, effectively creating a warm, loving
experience for the boy and Gramma. —Horn Book, © 1994
The Finest Horse in Town
by Jacqueline Briggs Martin
illustrated by Susan Gaber
Long before my mother was born, her aunts owned a store in a small village in Maine. They had a smart gray horse who pulled a shiny black buggy when they went out riding.
Prince was the finest horse in town. But no one remembers who took care of that beautiful animal while the aunts were working in their store: perhaps it was a sneaky trader who tried to steal him, perhaps it was a one-legged harmonica player who taught him to dance; perhaps it was two children who once saved Prince's life.
