“The Wild Little Horse” by Rita Gray was very animated, and my daughter loved it…she was constantly calling out the different animals contained within the book…it was fun!!! Almost like going to the zoo, or going to the country to visit her grandma…she really gets her full of the cows and horse out there!!!
Aside from all the animation, Ms. Gray had a really good message for young readers. In the story, the little horse is constantly trying to break-through with his independence…trying to explore on his own. He has a great time doing it, and he gets a fill of his freedom. However, he soons finds himself getting lonely for his parents, and, when he looks around, he finds them there.
As a parent, I believe it’s a great lesson for children letting them know that their parents’ love with alway be with them, no matter where they are or no matter how big they fill like they’re getting. They can’t get away from it!!!
I give it 5 stars.
P.S. My daughter received “The Wild Little Horse” through Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. It’s a great program, allowing your child to receive 1 book a month from birth to 5-years old.
