Editorial Reviews

New York Times
Eyewitness Visual Dictionaries make learning a lush, intriguing journey.
RQ
The Eyewitness Visual Dictionaries differ from the Eyewitness books in that the text is longer and the vocabulary more difficult.... The photographs are outstanding.... The brief text compresses many details into a few sentences. The vocabulary is scholarly... and charts combined with the text give a clear overview of the subject[s].
Washington Post
Valuable reference that doesn't overwhelm ... kids love to pore over such books.
School Library Journal
Gr 5 Up-Both novices and knowledgeable enthusiasts will discover a feast for the eyes on each page of this pictorial study. Along with spreads detailing the animal's anatomy, there are two double-page spreads illustrated with full-color photographs of the various breeds, divided into light and heavy horses. Following this overview, the guide briefly focuses on the care and activities of equines today, including grooming, shoeing, racing, jumping, and equipment. A comprehensive index allows for quick access to the striking, clearly labeled illustrations and photos. Whether readers are browsing or searching for specific information, they will enjoy exploring this book. It will be a popular addition to collections in which Juliet Clutton-Brock's Horse (Knopf, 1992) is in demand.-Carol Schene, Taunton Public Schools, MA
