Satchi and Little Star

Satchi and Little Star

by Donna Marie Seim

Satchi, a young, dark-skinned girl from Grand Turk Island, watches as a herd of eight wild horses trot past her gate! One little horse has a white star on his forehead. She yearns to have a horse of her very own. But, when she asks her mama and papa they both say, “Satchi, wild horses are meant to be wild.” Satchi decides that she will catch and tame, Little Star, all by herself. Join Satchi in her joys and trials as we follow her down the path that leads Satchi to what true friendship really is. Inspired by the beautiful wild horses in the Caribbean and around the world, Donna weaves the story of a young girl, a wild horse, and how they touch each other’s lives. 

Midwest Book Review, “highly recommended especially for public library children’s picture book collections”  Satchi and Little Star is a heartwarming picture book that will especially appeal to little girls who love horses. Satchi and Little Star ultimately has a strong positive message about how it is possible to love wild animals without forcibly making them into domestic pets.
