Publisher Description

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Horses can help people fix ANYTHING! Archie is not your average horse. He helps people get rid of their flies...you know, the things that bug us! When horses get flies, they swish their tails to make them go away, but since people don't have tails, they come to Archie for help. This creative book for all ages takes a look at how powerful using horses can be to help people heal on the inside.



ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Julia Cook, M.S. is a national award-winning children's author, counselor, and parenting expert. She has presented in thousands of schools nationally and internationally, regularly speaks at education and counseling conferences, and has published children’s books on a wide range of character and social development topics. The goal behind Cook's work is to actively involve young people in fun, memorable stories and teach them to become lifelong problem solvers. Inspiration for her books comes from working with children and carefully listening to counselors, parents, and teachers, in order to stay on top of needs in the classroom and at home. Cook has the innate ability to enter the worldview of a child through storybooks, giving children both the "what to say" and the "how to say it."



Allison Valentine is an artist and illustrator who spends her time creating fun and colorful artwork from her Connecticut art studio. She has illustrated multiple children's books, including several of Julia Cook's previous books, and has also received the AEP (Association for Educational Publishers) Distinguished Achievement Award.



PRAISE FOR THE BOOK:

This book touchingly introduces readers to the power horses can have helping youth and adults face and overcome the difficult struggles in their lives. This concept is now a professional method of mental health treatment known as Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, where a licensed mental health professional and an equine specialist work together with horses and clients to help remove the "flies" and live healthier, happier lives.

Lynn Thomas LCSW, Co-founder & Executive Director, Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association (EAGALA)



Excellent book for therapy! I have conducted Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy for three years--great book for any age. Julia Cook summarizes how horses can break through resistance and foster acceptance and healing. Her book highlights the emotional intelligence and non-judging nature of our equine partners!
