    A nice holiday-themed story, but I don't know if I'd really ever read it more than once. I really liked it but it was very generic and predictable.

    I have been a fan of Melody Carlson forever, and one of the reasons is because whatever she writes, whether its a story about teens, or a Christmas story I always wind up feeling like I got more than just a story. Instead she always takes me on a journey that makes me feel just a bit better for having read the story.The year is 1937, and all eight year old Lucy Turnbull wants for Christmas is a pony,but she is pretty sure it's a wish that won't come true. After all not only does her mother cauti [...]

    From the perspective of an 8 year old girl named Lucy, this book — a heartfelt story of hope and faith in a 1930s Christmas setting — shows the pure love and joy that can come from simplest of things. I really enjoyed this read. :)

    Melody Carlson’s The Christmas Pony features old-fashioned holiday fun, a sweet romance, and an adorable heroine named Lucy Turnbull.In this charming novella, eight-year-old Lucy shows the adults around her the power of childlike faith and even does a little match-making along the way. Think The House Without a Christmas Tree, Holiday Affair, or Miracle on 34th Street—throw in some hot cocoa in front of the wood stove—and you’ll be in just the right mood to enjoy this story.Here’s the [...]

    I have come to think of reading Ms. Carlson's Christmas books as a tradition and while I have to read them a little early for me in the season, they never fail to bring me good cheer and warm feelings when I read one of them. The Christmas Pony is no exception, in fact I think it's one of her best of the last three years that I have been reading.The story focuses around a young girl who's family is making it for their small town after the great depression in 1937. All Lucy really wants for Chris [...]

    I absolutely love stories written from the perspective of a child, and 8-yr-old Lucy Turnbull is as precious as they come! "The Christmas Pony" is chock-full of charm, and viewing life through Lucy's eyes reveals a heart-warming story of faith and hope and love. Within pages of beginning the story, I was swept up into her innocence and naivety as she encounters 2 strangers who arrive into town, strangers who she soon convinces to move into her mother's boardinghouse. As she discovers more and mo [...]

    My Thoughts on this BookLucy Turnbull wants the neighbor’s pony, Smoky so bad, but she knows her family cannot afford to purchase it, nor could they afford food. So Lucy gives up her wishes but she still visits Smoky as much as she can, until the day she finds he is gone, and the for sale sign is gone. In the mean time, Lucy meets some interesting strangers in town that need a place to stay, so she recommends her mom’s boarding house. This opens up a whole can on interest and tension for Luc [...]

When two out-of-towners show up out of nowhere and need some place to stay, Lucy is amazed. If God could give them boarders during the holiday season, surely He can give her the adorable gray pony she’s wanted for so long. But soon, Lucy’ [...]

    I am starting to enjoy the darker, cooler evenings with a good book! I have dived into Christmas books lately and it is certainly getting me in the spirit.

    I can't resist a book with a horse on the cover, so I couldn't wait to read this! The book is a really sweet Christmas story, told from an eight year old's point of view. She sees the world through such innocent eyes, you can't help but like her story.The book is a shorter novella, so it can be read without the stress of a 400 page book during the holiday season, which is great. The story was a bit different than I thought it would be. When I read the description, I thought that it might be on t [...]

    So today while I was reading this book 2 weeks after my Aunt Lucy passed away, I found it ironic that I was reading a story about a girl named Lucy. By the time you read this some time in November I am assuming. My aunt will have been in Heaven 6 weeks. Still fresh, but with all the death we have had this year I am able to stay strong and move on.I found this book enjoyable! I can not say that this was my FAVORITE Christmas Book by Melody Carlson but it is pretty close. But it was sure cute. I r [...]

    Eight-year-old Lucy Turnbull has her heart set on a gray pony named Smoky. However, as Christmas 1937 approaches, times are difficult for Lucy’s family. Her mother and grandmother are trying to maintain a small part of their Arizona farm by renting rooms, and they have little money to spare. One day, Lucy meets two strangers, George and Veronica, who become boarders. At first, things seem to be going well, and romance is in the air, at least until something unexpected happens on Christmas Eve. [...]

    I love the time period – in the middle of the depression, just before WWII. It is perfect for this type of story.Because the story is told from the innocence of a child’s perspective, I think that is what makes this a special story. All in all, a lovely little Christmas book that has everything that you could want in a holiday story. This would be a perfect to curl up with on a snowy afternoon and Andy Williams in the background.

    Getting started on my Christmas reading a little early this year lol The library happened to have a bunch of Christmas novels in so I decided to grab a couple. This was a pretty short and sweet little story.

    Susan F
    I loved this book!! This is a sweet story which is told by the main character who is a child. A very unique way to tell a romance story.

    Melissa Coyle
    A cute little story about hopes and wishes and happy endings! :)

    Stephanie
    What a super cute read!

    Michelle Spencer
    I wanted a fast, cozy, Christmas-y read, and this fit the bill for that. It was book candy. That’s all.Unfortunately, it wasn’t even GOOD book candy. In candy terms, it was like the Bit O’Honeys and root beer barrels that get left in the bottom of the candy jar after the Jolly Ranchers and Werther’s are gone.It had a simplistic, clunky writing style that would have flowed better in first person to match the narrative voice of the little girl. And for a book with “pony” in the title, [...]

    This delightful Christmas tale of love, hope and forgiveness is told through the eyes of innocent eight-year-old Lucy who wishes for two things for Christmas: a pony named Smokey and that her mother's smile would return. Even as little Lucy's hopes are dashed from being an angel in the church pageant, she receives a keen education on the lowliest of heavenly creatures and the role they plan on earth. It is well worth the three hours it takes to read this message.

    A 1930's young girl would like a pony for Christmas and prays for boarders to help ends meet. They get a lively round of boarders and just maybe a little girl's dream of a pony for Christmas will come true. The mom is a widow and having one of the boarder's help opens her heart and she begins to consider love again. The characters are not fully developed, but its a sweet little Christmas story.

    Patti
    Heartwarming and tender, this sweet story makes for a lovely holiday read. It's predictable, but that doesn't make it boring. The characters are well-drawn and ones I came to really care about. And I loved the 1930's setting, including a mention of some of my favorite '30's film stars.

    Natalie
    Heartwarming story. The characters feel surprisingly well-developed for a book this short. Predictable? Yes, but that’s what I want from any book with the word “Christmas” in it! #belikegeorge

    LauraLane
    I enjoyed this light Christmas book very much. It made me feel good. That's what I needed.

    Kati Polodna
    Predictable but a cute story to get me in the mood for Christmas.

    Joy Gerbode
    Very cute story reminded me a lot of where I grew up in Montana, although it is set in Arizona. I enjoyed the characters, and interactions, and the lessons learned. Good Christmas fluff!
