Okay, I admit it, I bought this book for me. I had a horse from 1age 2-17, and this IS a perfect book for young equestrians. The illustrations are wonderful and the text just gave me that feeling I get whenever I think back on my riding days.
The last four pages with horse color and horse breeds is really handy, even for the armchair equestrian!
This quaint story is told by an unknown child who tells their favorite things to watch horses do. The narrator describes watching horses eat, groom, raise their babies and interact with other horses.
The pictures are realistic drawings and they accent the text very well. Many of the pages have captions under the illustrations adding extra information about what is mentioned on that page. That is a very good way to provide more information without disrupting the flow of the story.

This book is about horses in a field. The author describes the different colors and features of horses while giving brief descriptions of some of the horses activities. I would use this in my classroom as an example of text with very descriptive text and imagery.
Lovely book to introduce children to the world of horses. The illustrations by Kenneth Lily are brilliant.
A girl is sitting there watching wild horses. She asks you questions about the horses. She liked the grey onr but thought. they were all beautiful. I think so too.

I have a 6 year old daughter who has a facination with horses, even though she's never been around them. This book was great! Easy read, but filled with little bits of information about horses through it.
This is not my favorite, but it I did like the pages dedicated to identifying the different breeds of horses. The kids enjoyed it.
beautiful horses!!
