Kirkus Reviews - Little Foal's Busy Day

Follow a sleek black foal frolicking through an idyllic day. Starring a long-legged, curious foal with a white star on its forehead that ensures recognizability even when it’s amid a crowd, this board book is clearly made by and for horse fanciers. Within sweeping, lush pastoral scenes, the foal wakes up next to its dam, gallops about, views other horses and animals, and returns to the barn to rest.
