Review – Children’s Book HOT on the Range


HOT on the Range Written by R.D Jentsch

I had a chance to review this with my 14 month old daughter, 7 year old son, and my little neighbor Jenna who is 6. My son didn’t really want to listen to the story as he was in his own little world today. The girls sat and listened to the whole story. My daughter would giggle and smile at the pictures and Jenna really enjoyed the story.


My thoughts are that it is a cute little story that teaches that each animal and person has their own personality. The little horse in the story was looking to find different places to stay cool from the HOT summer sun. It was cute how he wanted to keep moving reminds me of my son who always wants to be doing something. The little horse meets other animals on the way to staying cool. Each one tells him what they are going to do. In the end I think he found how to be cool without even looking for it. He gets sprayed down with the hose.

Now I can’t really tell you my daughters thoughts as I told you her reactions above. Jenna’s thoughts were the horse was having fun playing and then he got warm and wanted to get cool. She said it was to hot out. Her favorite parts of the story were seeing the horses playing in the mud and at the end where the horse is sprayed and enjoying the water. She said it reminds her of playing in the sprinkler on a hot summer day to stay cool.

I can see exactly how this story was written as the author R. D. Jentsch loves to work with her fourteen horses. She treats her horses with respect according to their own distinct personality and focuses on natural horsemanship. She really is a talented writer and takes her experience and writes it well.

My final thoughts are thatย  I would definitely recommend this book to all boys and girls. It truly is enjoyable and has a lesson to be learned at the same time.

    Just wanted to say how great the review is. The looks on the kids faces says it all. Exactly what I was writing for.

    I also wanted to remind the readers, if they want to pick up a copy a the local bookstore, be prepared to pay almost double. But if you buy through the Amazon link or through, you can save some money.

    I’d hate for the bookstores to pocket your hard earned money in the form of special order fees.

    All my best and happy reading.
