A beautifully produced Nature Storybook about horses, by Vivian French with pictures by Kate Greenaway medallist Catherine Rayner.
From much-loved author Vivian French and award-winning illustrator Catherine Rayner comes a charming new Nature Storybook about horses. Hello, Horse! gently introduces young children to Shannon, a friendly chestnut mare, and offers encouragement to children unfamiliar with or a little nervous of these large, beautiful creatures.
The subtext is packed with practical tips, such as the right way to offer an apple, and also covers their behaviour - horses' need for company, for example - and life cycle. Tender words and art combine to create a warm and witty introduction to horses... from the safety of the page!
