Every child adores getting twirled and tossed by Mommy and Daddy. Again! Again, they squeal. That’s the rapturous joy Nicola Smee captures, in simple rhythmic text and charming pictures. One after the other, a group of barnyard friends climb aboard Mr. Horse for a ride. Faster, they beg…faster! But will “faster” lead to disaster? No…just a satisfying ending that toddlers will love.
This simple read is about a horse who takes his animal friends for a ride, and they just want to go faster. When the horse goes too fast and then stops so they don’t fall off, the animal friends are plopped into a pile of hay and just want to ride again. This board book doesn’t have a whole lot of a story line, so I’d say it’s better suited for pretty little readers.
