Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Harry has a wonderful pal. It is a horse that lives in his room, but one that no one else can see. He is a very skilled horseman because they ride around the room and never break or topple anything. At night, Harry's horse watches over him, and when he comes home from school, his pal is waiting. One weekend Harry's parents decide to take him out to see real horses and on the way back they remark that horses should be free. Once home, Harry races to his room and tells his horse that he is free to go. Happily for Harry, his horse decides to stay and Harry knows they will be together for as long as Harry wishes. A really delightful story of the power of imagination and friendship. The illustrations by Hoff, with just a simple outline of the horse, are wonderful—they show clearly that the horse is real only to Harry. "An I Can Read Book." 2002 (orig. 1970), HarperCollins,

I enjoyed this when I was a kid. Now I can share it with my own kids. This is a treat for any child who loves horses and who has a good imagination. I'd like to recommend another books that is enjoyed by horse loving kids who have good imaginations.

My 5 year old daughter had me read this to her over and over, it's very cute, she would look for her "sight words" and try reading on her own, it repeats enough that's easy for them to recognize words in every page!

My son really progressed by reading this book! He was able to sound out basic words and that helped him to be confident to move onto another book! He still reads it at bedtime to me.
