This week, Amy reads The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses, an interpretation of a Plains Indians legend written and illustrated by Paul Goble, and published by Simon & Schuster. This book won the Caldecott Medal in 1979.
This is a lovely folktale about a girl who is separated from her family in a storm and carried away by a herd of wild horses. When she awakes, she meets the leader of all the horses, who invites her to live among them.
After the story, Amy demonstrates how to make a clay horse. Giddyup!
