The beginning of this story is about the daily life of horses. It’s everything we’re used to reading about life on a horse farm. The horses eat, race each other in the fields, have their showers, and eat their dinners. However, once their human caretakers go in for the night — the disco ball comes out and the party begins. The horses start playing cards with sugar cubes (instead of poker chips), the mares paint each others’ hooves and do each others’ hair, and there’s even a horse comedian that makes, “the ladies laugh so hard they fall off their buckets.” After a midnight snack and some dancing, the horses call it a night and go to sleep.
Oh My Goodness!! Definitely recommend this book to others. Who knew that horses continue “living” after the owners go off to bed. The Night Horses described everything perfectly, and you can tell the author thought every horse out while she was writing this book, it was so creative. Did you know that horses painted their hooves pink, braiding manes, telling jokes, and etc.? You will just need to read this book to see for yourself!
I absolutely love that my 5-year-old is a beginner reader, and the words was easy for her. The Night Horses is also a great way to bring out her imagination.
