About this item
When a young girl goes to visit her grandparents' sugarcane farm in the Dominican Republic, she rides a special horse named Kingly. This horse takes care of her and is very happy to see her! Together they take a tour around the farm.
The girl rides Kingly bareback, and they travel down the sugarcane trails, smelling the sweet aroma of sugarcane and seeing the green plants all over the farm. They go to the water tank, where Kingly can get a drink and where the children from the farm can fill their containers with water to take back to their homes. The visitor sees what the fields look like after a harvest and then hears what a loud rainstorm sounds like on the farm. As Kingly and the girl visit all around, they discover new things about the environment, the people, and the production of sugarcane.
Written in both Spanish and English, this children's story explores a remote sugarcane farm and helps young readers learn both new facts and Spanish words.
