A Horse With Wings contains sixteen original songs and pictures for children, composed and illustrated by Daeshin Kim and Sohyun An Kim respectively, a husband and wife team. Each nursery rhyme is 'sung by' a character from Shakespeare - for example, Hamlet sings about his dear departed friend Yorick, and Juliet wonders what's in a name. Each song also addresses a specific issue with which children can identify, whether it be about rivalry, bullying or simply about the smelliest dog in the world. The Kims' young daughter Sherman also sings some of the songs.

From the Back Cover:
KinderBard was created during one of those late night conversations when we were marveling over how much our daughter's spoken French was improving through her enjoyment of French nursery rhymes and folk songs. As educators ourselves, we could see how children's songs could be used as an aid to language learning. Then we wondered something out loud, like, "Wouldn't it be great if there were children's songs sung from the point of view of, say, Shakespeare characters, so that kids could also be introduced to the world of Shakespeare along the way?" And we were convinced that something like that must exist. We looked it up. We searched for such a thing because if it did exist, we wanted to buy it. But it didn't. And we knew immediately that this was something that needed to exist. And so we decided to create it ourselves.
