Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joyce Rice
This first volume in a three volume series introduces young readers to the various breeds of horses and ponies. Each breed is introduced in a full page spread with pictures, a quick fact file and a description of the breed. Students will learn the origin of the breed, its average size, its coloration, character, and conformation. The animals are divided into three groups: pony breeds, working horses, and sports horses. Thirty-eight different breeds are included. The book also provides a glossary, and references for videos, books and web sites. The other two titles in this series cover learning to ride a horse, and caring for a horse. This is a must have for readers interested in horses. Parents will want to include this volume in home libraries. This is a good title for supplementing the pet section of the library collection. However, the content is not extensive enough to be a good reference volume.
School Library Journal
Gr 4 Up-Featuring a design reminiscent of teen magazines, this thorough, solid set presents information on double-page spreads with content-rich layouts that include colored boxes, checklists, and liberal use of full-color photographs. The attractively presented material is clearly written and accurate. Breeds is the weakest title as the use of action shots often makes it difficult to see the distinguishing features of the breed under discussion. However, a useful fact file on each type of horse is a plus, as are the discussions of the meaning of hot-, cold-, and warm-blooded breeds. Care is an excellent introduction to the intricacies of keeping an equine friend, covering stabling options, feed and feeding, grooming, shoeing, common ailments, etc. An outstanding overview of the details beginners need to familiarize themselves with, including the basic gear, lessons, and more, is offered in Learning to Ride. Each volume includes a list of books, videos, and Web sites for further information. Although The Random House Book of Horses and Horsemanship (1991) remains the genre's bible, these titles deserve a place on most shelves.-Lisa Falk, Los Angeles Public Library.
