Excerpt

Ten thousand white horses
Will rise from the sea.
I wonder where
They'll carry me.

I'll try to catch a few thousand
And ride them to shore,
Ten thousand white horses
And more.

From out of the white caps,
The horses now come.
They're skirting, flirting,
Proceeding, receding.

The little ones whisper,
"Come play!"
As they quickly
Are slipping away.

Format: Paperback
Ten thousand white horses go racing to shore,
ten thousand white horses and more.
Ten thousand white horses go bolting to shore,
ten thousand white horses and more.
Lines like this are sprinkled throught the book.
The action changes from racing to rushing to
thundering to bolting and so forth as that same
line is repeated. The story is told in a galloping
rhythm that kids love.
The art work is great. They are the kinds of pictures
that you can look at again and again and see more details
that you missed the first times.
My kids and I love the way it is written and the art work!

I bought this at a store instead of at amazon.
The picture here doesn't show the quality of the art work very well. At least it doesn't on my computer. The art work is great. The color is a warm ocean blue. I'm excited about reading this to the kids when we go to the beach this summer. It is a wonderful story that kids love to hear again and again. They love to look at the details in the pictures. The writer and artist did a great job. I just wish the pictures showed up better on my computer. It is much better than it looks here.

I enjoy this delightful tale as much as my daughter does.
It is fun to read it out loud to her. I can really caught up in the action of catching a wave and riding it to shore. The language catches the feeling of the galloping horses. My daughter and I love horses and we love this book.
It would make a great Christmas present to anyone who loves horses.

I saw this book and just had to get it. I know it is a children's book but I call it a coffee table book. I loved horses when I was a kid and I still do. I don't have kids at home but this book sits on my coffee table in the living room.
It is a book for anyone who loves horses.

Format: Paperback
Picture a clear blue sky along the coastal beach, miles and miles of the mighty ocean offering up her latest show just for you. A spectacular panoramic view of breathtaking waves of imagination, will give you memories to last a lifetime.
In this poetic story a young girl experiences some of that feeling during her outing at the beach. Having missed the first wave, is dunked by the second one, and then finally catches the third.
While on her floater, from the white caps of the roaring sea waves arise 10,000 White Horses, some unique guest members of the aquatic world. Running along the waves, pushing and shoving, as they playfully race for the shore. For one heart pounding moment upon reaching the sandy beach they jump through darkness and disintegrate back into the sea.
10,000 White Horses is a great adventure and a way to introduce young children to the wonders of nature, gaining a deep appreciation for these cosmically remarkable creatures.
This is an excellent starter book for both English and Spanish speaking children and an instrumental teaching tool for teachers and parents.
