The story of Tony the horse, told in free verse, is ordinary. But Erin Stead's illustrations are worth the price of the book. You don't see a lot of illustrations like this in children's books anymore (as I constantly lament).

Definitely in the running for Caldecott 2018. For some reason, this one made me cry a little. Just a smidge. It is so beautifully illustrated and speaks to the memory of connection you can feel with an animal.

It's one thing when contemporaries recommend a book to you, but when one of your students tells you to read a book you read it with no questions asked. If they know you well enough to believe you will love a b...

A nostalgic poem introduces young readers to the long bygone era of horse drawn wagon dairy delivery, focusing on the narrator’s admiration for the horse that pulled the cart. The picture book format physically extends this gentle poem by spreading it out, with only a line or several lines per pa...

A beautiful book that gives you the warm fuzzies. The story is about a work horse, Tony, that comes to life through beautiful sketches. Would be better with one-on-one because the book is small and readers need to be close to appreciate the illustrations.
