|The Night Horses by Anaka Jones|
As human beings go to bed late into the night, the Night Horses come out and play. Who could have imagined such a scene? From getting manicures, to setting up comedy clubs, or creating an all-out disco groove, the reader is given a different perspective to after-hours horse life.
The Night Horses is a refreshing way to tell a tale about different characteristics and potential personalities of animals in general and horses in specific. Through an interesting twist, human attributes were given to the horses as they enjoyed the night life, it also clues young readers into questioning the intelligence of such magnificent animals.
My son and I truly enjoyed this story. As we delved into it without knowing much more than what was on the cover, we were delightfully surprised.
I highly recommend this book, especially if you have small children in the house.
