One of a Mathstart (Level 2) series, Same Old Horse is all about Making Predictions. Allergic Hankie, named for a handkerchief because he sneezes so often, is tired of being teased for his predictability. So he tries to change.

But Jazz and Majesty have been watching him for days, know his routine, and use logic to predict events to Hankie's friend Spark Plug. As they watch their foretellings unfold, they gloat, 'Same old horse.' But then something funny happens, and as Spark Plug aptly states, it's predictable, 'But it sure wasn't boring!'

At the back of the book are suggestions on how to use it to encourage kids to predict what Hankie will do, to explain their conclusions, and to discover patterns in their own lives.
