Read-Aloud Thursday

This week my 8yo read me The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses. This is a Caldecott Award winner and the illustrations are just fabulous. The story has a daydream quality that really ties into a child playing pretend- like when a child decides that he loves elephants and spends the afternoon pretending to be an elephant. In the book the girl loves her tribe's horses. One day when she is with the horses a storm comes up and when the horses run off in fear of the thunder she gets lost with them. In the end it is implied, though never stated, that she may have become a horse. We really enjoyed it!
