Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Imagine owning your own pony. What do you need to know? How would you take care of it? What does it eat? What are bridles and bits? How do you show your pony for competition? What is the difference between a Palomino and a Dun? Well-written short introductory topics introduce the young reader to the responsibilities and world of owning a pony. For example, under the heading "Handle with care," the reader will learn about natural instincts and how to read a pony's expression. Under "Stablemates," the reader learns about safety first and the different types of bedding materials needed for a warm comfortable night. Topics range from birth, to ponies of the past, to proper handling, to learning how to ride, to having fun. Especially nice are the generous illustrations highlighting every aspect of pony life. Rich in detail and realistic in appearance, these are the type of illustrations children will love to study. A glossary and an index are provided. 2005, Kingfisher, Ages 5 to 8.
—Robyn Gioia
School Library Journal
Gr 2-3-Budd does not present anything new here, but if you have a demand for books on ponies for the beginning chapter-book crowd, this one covers the basics in simple, clear language. Thirteen double-page spreads address topics such as "Horses and ponies of the world," "Ponies of the past," "Daily tasks," "Bridles and bits," "Saddling up," "Learning to ride," and "Going to a show." Color illustrations of uneven quality support the text, but have limited appeal. Louise Pritchard's My Pony Book DK, 1998 is illustrated with beautiful full-color photos.-Lisa Falk, Los Angeles Public Library Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
