Praise for If I Had a Horse

"Readers will almost feel the wind in their hair and hear the thunder of hooves as they are inspired to pursue their dreams. Beautiful."—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Marino’s silhouettes should make it easy for readers to imagine themselves in the story, a contemplative tribute to children’s deeply felt desires for a pet and how one’s imagination can almost bring those fantasies to life."—Publishers Weekly

"An invigorating opportunity for individuals or groups to participate in a glorious moment—inside out."—School Library Journal
