"No horsefeathers, this is a surefire bet for young equestrians." —Booklist

Do you love horses? Do you love the way their noses are silky-soft but bristly too? And the way a horse's tail slowly swishes as he rests in the shade with eyes half-shut?

What did you think of the book? I thought the book was okay. The book is full of interesting facts about horses. I do think this would be a great book for some students. Especially those interested in horses. I do not think this is a book to read to the class for fun.-possible for a unit on animals-learning in more detail about horses. It would also be a great book to have those students look at that have a great admiration for horses.
What resonated with you? The illustrations are fantastic and

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.

Besides wonderful pictures on each page, and short text for young readers, there is additional information in smaller print as well. I loved the illustrations and the information.

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.
