Gallop along with two-time Caldecott Medalist Sophie Blackall as she reads from her new book, If I Was a Horse, about a riotous day in the life of a child who imagines their life as a horse. What ensues are uproarious, resonant episodes that feature a giant horse in familiar settings offering both a visual feast, a grand dose of joy, and a celebration of the real power of imagination to help us navigate the world.
