This is a truly wonderful book. The illustrations are beautiful and the narrative is lyrical. The story is about a young horse who goes out to play on his own for the first time without his mother and father. He goes far and plays with a friend but then realizes he needs to go home and goes back. The text rhymes making it easy to for my little one to pay attention. My daughter understood the story easily and kept asking about what happens next. We own another book from this author and definitely plan to buy more. Highly recommended!
