Looking for a sweet horse book for 3 year old? These illustrated books would be the best for babies!
Hush, Little Horsie, written by Jane Yolen, illustrated by Ruth Sanderson
Sweet Dreams for Little Horse Lovers:
If you know a horse-loving toddler or preschooler, you also know they’re easy to recognize: at bedtime, they’re the ones who suddenly seem to grow four legs! Luckily, Jane Yolen and Ruth Sanderson have created a new picture book, Hush, Little Horsie, that will send tots galloping to their beds and into sweet dreams.
“Hush, little horsie / Asleep on the farm. / Your mama is near / And will keep you from harm” begins Caldecott Medal-winning author Jane Yolen’s soothing tale of five mares who watch their foals play and watch over them as they sleep – and of a human mother who reads to her daughter and watches over her as the child drifts into dreams of horses. Ruth Sanderson, the illustrator of more than 80 children’s books, complements the story with a globe-trotting display of luminous and tender portraits. The five equine families include black and white Gypsy Vanners on a lush valley farm, strawberry roan Appaloosas on the American plains (who look a bit like Sanderson’s own horse, Thor!), sorrel wild ponies on Chincoteague Island‘s golden beaches, bay Exmoor Ponies on the moors of southern England, and a grey Thoroughbred mare at a racetrack with her foal, who looks like a huggable baby Black Beauty.
Hush, Little Horsie is the kind of book children will return to again and again. Each painting brims with details that beg to be explored. The rhythmic, rhyming text invites even the youngest to “read” along. And the story itself glows with the comforting assurance that mothers love and watch over their children. As affectionate as a good-night hug, Hush, Little Horsie is sure to become as much of a bedtime standard for horse-loving kids – and horse-loving moms!
