Teaching young children a valuable life lesson, to “love yourself for who you are, and never, ever let anyone tell you that you don’t belong,” Hayseed’s First Race will be a treasured book for years to come! Written and illustrated by Sally Schrock, Hayseed’s First Race tells the tale of Hayseed, a Thoroughbred of a different color, around a race track as he tried to win the first race he has ever competed in. Hayseed’s attempts to win are thwarted by Prince Perfect, a champion Thoroughbred who thinks he is just absolutely perfect in every way! (hence his name!) Hayseed begins to lose hope and starts to doubt himself, until he remembers the advice of his mother, which was “love yourself for who you are, and never, ever let anyone tell you that you don’t belong,” and ends up winning his first major race! Fall in love with Hayseed in this triumphant story, and purchase a copy online at www.caballopress.com/HayseedBook.html.
