Children's LiteratureImagine 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.
