This is a horsey-poetry books with soft and sweet illustrations. There are some cute, thoughtful, touching and instructive poems that kids would love ¿ especially those that have been around horses.
This charming book is poety but don't let that stand in the way of your getting this treasure. The poems are short and simple yet profound. Great for early childhood read-aloud as well as first years in school. Very precious pictures that capture the essence of each poem. Also a plus is that the sequence itself tells a little story.
