The Horse in Harry's Room

The Horse in Harry's Room

Harry is busy riding his horse around his bedroom in his home in the city. Through the door his parents hear, "Whoa" and "Giddyap." "Let's take Harry to the country, " says his father who along with Harry's mother cannot see the horse that Harry rides so happily. At school in show and tell, Harry shares about his horse and how he can ride it around his room without knocking anything down. The other children laugh at him. The family heads to the country with the hope that Harry will be satisfied with seeing the real thing but when Harry watches the horses running, kicking and nibbling, he begins to wonder if perhaps his horse would rather be free. What will the answer be? This is a lovely book about the imagination and experiencing things in your own mind and in your own way. Your mind is an amazing tool and you should be free to use it! This book is one that has been around for four decades and always serves to remind me how the authors writing for children back in the "olden days" had tremendous insight, respect and empathy for our youngest. 32 pages An I Can Read Book Ages 4-7
