Author Richard Van Camp has always been curious about horses. He is a member of the Dogrib (Tlicho) Nation, a Native North American tribe that uses dogs instead of horses, because it's too cold for them up in Canada One wintry day, he decides to do some investigating. Our friendly guide invites us to accompany him on his playful search for the most beautiful thing about horses. He asks his family, his friends, and even the artist, George Littlechild, what is the most beautiful thing they know about horses. The answers he gets range from zany to profound, and show him that even seemingly ordinary things can be seen in entirely new ways.

I'm not sure why this #ownvoices book isn't better known? It's one of our favorite children's picture books about animals. Van Camp is a member of the Dogrib nation from the Northwest Territories of Canada, and Littlechild is from the Plains Cree nation. They have created SUCH a fun book. You absolutely must read it out loud as though this kid is talking to you, filling you in on his world and what's going on inside his head while he interviews his friends and family. The paintings are intensely colorful and distinctive. There's a whole conversation to be had just about the art style, let alone the content. Love it.
