Are You a Horse?Today, the tots grabbed Are You A Horse? by Andy Rash. Roy, the cowboy, is given a saddle for his birthday, but doesn’t know what to do with it. He is told that he needs a horse to use it, and not knowing what a horse is, he finds a different animal on each page until he eventually finds a horse. Roy’s dim-witted naive attitude, as well as the way he is drawn, are both a bit reminiscent of Dudley Do-Right (the Canadian Mountie). The book is cute, has a laugh out loud ending, but is probably only worth one or two readings (at least from the adult’s perspective). It would make a good storytime read for the little toddlers. I’d take it home from the library, if for no other reason than you don’t disturb other patrons with a boisterous laugh on the last page turn.
