    A Horse s Tale A Colonial Williamsburg Adventure is a cute picture book with personified animals playing the part of people in Colonial Williamsburg It functions as a way to introduce children to several of the jobs in 18th century America with a bit of the vocabulary while held loosely together through a story about a runaway horse The rhyme is fun and the story is somewhat intriguing if a bit forced Great for a trip to Williamsburg.

    Susan Lubner, A Horse s Tale A Colonial Williamsburg Adventure Abrams, 2008 Cute story about a horse who suddenly refuses to work and takes off on a tour of Colonial Williamsburg, told in rhyme Lubner uses the story both to instruct about the geography of the town and some of the professions that were practiced there that have since faded out of existence Engaging illustrations and a sense of whimsy make this one to look for.

    Great book to talk about local history I work in Virginia Storytime tips use the town crier to make a silly yelling voice for the kids Also encourage the kids to make horse trotting noises by clicking their tongues or, if too young, patting their hands on their knees.
