The Red Pony

The Red Pony happens to be one of my all-time favorite books. Steinbeck does not flinch from childhood disappointment, and the book is well-written, with a poignant ache that makes the reader both long for their youth and be glad they are well shut of it.

Here, Shmoop has a lovely series of summaries, lesson plans and guiding questions for the book. The authors of this unit "speak student," and the language is designed to help students not only delve deeply into the book with academic language but to also relate to it in their digitally-fueled lives.
