All the Pretty Little Horses: A Traditional Lullaby
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 1999 - Juvenile Fiction - 32 pages
Luminous pastel illustrations washed with color accompany the familiar words of this song from the American South. With its images of many-colored horses, cake, and a lost lamb that finds its mother, this lullaby artfully bridges the gap between sleep and waking. The pictures, too, take the viewer back and forth between the comfortable reality of the cradle on the porch and the vivid landscape of a child's dream. This striking picture-book rendition offers a new vision of a favorite lullaby and includes a simple arrangement of the tune.
