All eleven-year old Pip wanted was a best friend. When Pip gets a horse for her birthday she is delighted.  She thinks that the horse she names Buck will be her best friend from the moment that they meet. But she finds out that friendship does not come that easily. Her father gently guides her so that Pip can discover for herself how to make Buck a true friend.

Pip's new friend, Buck, has a story of his own. After leaving his own herd, to move to Pip's house, he is looking for a relationship that will help him feel safe. He, too, learns that making a friend takes patience and understanding.

The Gift is illustrated by Krickett King and is published by  TitleTown Publishing.

The book is the second book in the Growing Strong Together Series- Stories for Kids. It is available through Amazon and signed copies are available at Natural Lifemanship.
