Sam Lynn Smith is a young writer with a passion for horses. Readers are guaranteed to find a lot of information about and a lot of love for horses in her stories. Her first book, Boys Ride, Too, was published in the spring of 2011. The picture book–illustrated by Sam–was aimed at young readers between eight and twelve.
This book originated as a school project on bullies and what students can do to help stop bullying in the classroom and in the school yard. Sam’s passion for writing and art made it into something worth sharing with more than just her classmates.
Sam’s message is clear: One way to stop bullying is to tell someone, a teacher, a parent or another adult. Sometimes that’s all it takes.
