Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Baby horses are called foals, and they are mammals. Mammals are defined is animals that are born live, that have hair or fur on their bodies and that nurse their young. There are many different kinds of horses, ranging from very small ponies to very large Arabians. Donkeys and zebras are also part of the horse family. There's a spread which presents the major body parts of the horse and shows its skeleton. Horses have backbones and are therefore vertebrates. Horses have keen senses of sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch. Kalman includes a little quiz that asks kids to guess what the markings on the horses face match. For example, does the horse's face have a blaze, a snip, a star, or a stripe? Horses are herbivores and therefore eat plants. Horses used to perform many tasks that machines do today. Now, most are used for recreation and sports. Those who might think it's fun to own a horse will appreciate a good section describing some of the many chores required to maintain a healthy horse. All of this information about horses is accompanied by excellent photographs and a few drawings. The final page includes a "Words to Know" section and an index. The index also contains pictures, which helps to make this book and others in the "Baby Animals" series attractive, enticing and just right for young kids reading on their own.
