Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Fall 2008 Kids' List
“I'm not interested in horses, but I love this book. The story is simple, following one little foal as he grows into a horse as the seasons pass. The spare, eloquent language is perfect, and Rinaldi's double-page oil paintings are amazing. I've been handing this book to anyone who tells me they're having a bad day. A few minutes later, they thank me and say they're feeling better.”
-- Heather Lyon, Lyon Books and Learning Center, Chico, CA


Description

Follow one little foal as he grows into a magnificent horse! From learning to stand on wobbly legs to napping in the sunshine and trotting around the field with his mother, he changes as the seasons pass. By springtime he has grown big and strong.

Set against lush green fields and picturesque skies, this touching portrait of a mare and her foal is perfect for all horse fans!
