My Horse Has Five Hearts is a book that teaches young children a wonderful lesson on the function of the horses hoof - and how it acts like a heart. The book shares a perspective from the child and the horse that your children and grandchildren, in fact, all children especially those 8-12 will love reading. This delightful scientific lesson will teach kids about the parts of the hoof, inside and out, the circulatory system, the various shapes a horse's hoof can take on, and how important the horse vet and shoer can be. Beautifully illustrated by Rusty Fletcher, and enjoyably written by a mother and daughter who know how important and pivotal the horse has become in our society.

The book takes on a topic that is not taught to many children and yet is so desperately needed thanks to the young co-author Laken, age 10. This colorful and insightful explanation of how the circulatory system in the horse is only one-way when it gets to the legs, and counts on the pumping action of the horse hoof to help it back up the leg - is a treasured learning that goes a long way to helping the horse be a healthy companion.

Each week, she receives emails, pictures and tweets about the sad condition of horses' hooves. When giving lectures around the world, she finds that there is room for more knowledge on the function of the hoof with everyone she meets. After listening to her 10 year old daughter explain in such simple ways what the hoof does, the two of them got inspired to share the story with other children and spread education and awareness.
