School Library Journal
Horse lovers will find much to admire here. Horses get a functional look in these early readers. Ten brief chapters focus on breeds and information unique to each category, avoiding the frequently covered care and riding tips. For example, Racing Horses includes chapters on thoroughbreds, gear, and different types of races while Wild Horses defines its subject, then goes into breeds from around the world, horse families, and “Taming and Training.” Overall the writing is clear as it weaves through and around the carefully chosen photos, sometimes seeming more like captions than the main text. At times, the flow can be challenging to follow. A brief glossary catches most of the vocabulary, although breed is only defined in Ponies.
