All the Pretty Little Horses
by Linda Saport (illustrator) Year Published: 2005
Luminous pastel illustrations washed with color accompany the familiar words of this song from the American South. With its images of many-colored horses, cake, and a lost lamb that finds its mother, this lullaby artfully bridges the gap between sleep and waking. Recommended reading level: grades 1-2, though wonderful to read and sing aloud to younger children, including infants and toddlers.
