A nostalgic poem intro...

A nostalgic poem introduces young readers to the long bygone era of horse drawn wagon dairy delivery, focusing on the narrator's admiration for the horse that pulled the cart. The picture book format physically extends this gentle poem by spreading it out, with only a line or several lines per page, which helps slow a reader's pace appropriately for the tone of the poem. Galing's poem pairs perfectly with Stead's ethereal illustrations. A translucent page before the title page signals a visual symbol of memory clouded by time. Erin Stead doesn't shy away from blank space, especially when focusing on a specific moment of a memory (e.g of the eggs and milk) but then using the full page spread for more general moments such as Tony's movement through the street. Yellow light shines accurately in the nighttime, shining from the barn and street lamps and then spreading as the sun rises. Stead captures Tony the horse perfectly in every pose, movement, and close-up. Readers will join the narrator in admiring Tony, pulling the milk cart. This beautifully illustrated poem is highly recommended for ages four to eight.
