      Imagine the wonder of a world where horses could be blue or any other colour you could choose! – I love the way Eric Carle enters into the world of the child’s imaginations – would just adore to win this book to share with my class of beautiful and imaginative preschoolers – I can just imagine the artistic and dramatic responses as I sit here.
