What People Say

“Leonard Eckhaus has achieved a most wonderful allegory in If I were a Pony. A poem set to pictures designed for young readers, this work transcends all ages by entering the imagination of a pony and its perception of life from beginning to end and a loving bond between friends. There are lessons within that become obvious and will enhance the spiritual, emotional and imagination of young readers as well as their families.  A book for the generations.” —Abe Schwartz, Emmy-winning Hollywood Video Editor

“If I Were a Pony is a story about a boy and his pony going through life together – a love story of two “friends” who live together and grow old together, sharing nuzzles and gallops and those long rides together that make life worth living. The story is very sweet and touched my heart…” —Jeri Crawford, Chairman of the Board, Las Vegas Philharmonic           

“Ever since I was a child, I loved to read. If I Were A Pony is meant for children, yet even as an adult I found myself lost in it -- in the perfect rhyming and the beautiful, emotional relationship of love between the little boy and his pony. I adore this book and I really wish I had it in my hands when I was a child… but aren’t we all children in our hearts? A beautiful book for children and for all of us who are young at heart. Len truly is a great storyteller, in rhymes or not, always capturing the essence of love and relationships – of what truly matters in our lives. A must read for sure.”   —Giada Valenti, Award-winning Singer/Songwriter
