This is a beautiful book about a little girl who rode a horse and went on an imaginative adventure. She described the scenes and the sounds as they went along. The colors used for the illustrations are soft and cheerful. Great book for children who like horses.
Perfect combination of poem and alphabet for your horse mad little girl.
