Illustrated colorful children's book about a snake and how he watches the horse and what he does and wants to be just like them.
The horse tries to explain what it is he does and tells the snake to try certain things for a weeks time.
He is not able to change into a horse but something magical does happen at the end....
Other works by the author are highlighted at the end.
One day the snake meets a friendly horse. The snake thinks that if he could become a horse, he could travel across the dirt and stones without any pain. The horse tells the snake that he needs to eat grass, neigh and gallop if he wants to be a horse. It is very hard for the snake to change but he is very determined to be a horse.
The snake is just about to give up when something magical happens! He does not exactly change into a horse, but he is much closer than he was before. The snake's hard work and determination pays off and he lives happily ever after as a "Snorse".
This is a very imaginative story about a snake and a horse. Kids always love to read about these animals and I believe this story will be very popular with young readers.
The color illustrations are excellent and add a great deal of value to the text. I read this ebook on my Kindle Fire. The illustrations filled half the screen on my ereader. I would love to see this book formatted so that the illustrations fill the entire screen.
The determination of the snake and the encouragement of the horse are great examples for young readers. I look forward to reading more books in the "WantsToBe" Series. Highly Recommended!
Any book that lights up his face, keeps him interested and reiterates what I've been teaching him about his opportunities gets 10 stars in my book (so to speak!)! So I naturally highly recommend this book to all kids!
