Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Leona Illig
Horses have always fascinated children, and they have inspired and helped mankind through the ages. In this book, part of the "Farmyard Friends" series, the author explores the life cycle of the horse. It explains the basics: what horses and ponies look like, where they live, and what they eat. Breeds such as the Appaloosa and the Quarter Horse are highlighted. Each topic is presented in a two-page spread containing color photographs that are explained with minimal text. The photographs are also labeled, which is useful for younger readers. Throughout the book a cartoon character, a bluebird, presents "Farmyard Facts," sidebars with additional information. The book contains a glossary, an index, and a section entitled "Notes for Parents and Teachers" which provides ideas and suggestions for further learning and activities. While this is a good introductory book for young readers, it would have been improved with the addition of more information on how the horse has helped mankind. Similarly, the section on the Appaloosa would have offered a good opportunity to teach about the importance of horses to Native American Indians, and the definition of "Quarter Horse" should have included the origin of the name. With such an abundance of interesting information available about horses, this book could have done more to make the subject come alive for readers. Teachers and parents should note that there are similarities between this book and other books in the "Farmyard Friends" series: the style, the layout, the "Notes" section, and the cartoon bluebird are identical. Thus, if readers enjoy or find useful one of the books in this series, they are likely to enjoy them all. Reviewer: Leona Illig
