Description

Saddle up for an adventure with two sisters as they revitalize their school's horseback riding club while also helping out at their family's bakery in "DK Adventures: Horse Club."

Emma adores horses as much as she idolizes her older sister, Amanda. She dreams about riding a cinnamon-colored horse in a show alongside her one day. Emma's wish looks like it's about to come true but it's not such a smooth ride.

Join Emma and Amanda at Paddock Promises' camp and learn how to handle, groom, tack up and ride a horse, meet horses from myths and legends, plus get a recipe to bake sweet pony cupcakes in "DK Adventures: Horse Club."

DK Adventures are an innovative mix of narrative and nonfiction for kids ages 8-11 featuring engaging, action-packed stories that help kids build their skills in vocabulary, grammar, comprehension, and critical thinking while developing a love of reading. With diaries, recipes, poetry, instructions, graphics, or songs, the genre spreads in each DK Adventures title enhance the story and reinforce curriculum learning, while the expansive range of entertaining nonfiction subjects will appeal to boys and girls everywhere.

Supports the Common Core State Standards.
