Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Using many textbook techniques, this book seems designed to teach reading and reference skills as much as it is intended to provide information about horses. Beginning with a "Be a Word Detective" page, the glossary is listed (no definitions) with a challenge to find these words as the book is read. A question appears next to each chapter title. The answer appears in the text on that page. Basic information about both domestic and wild horses is provided, including kinds of horses, what they eat and drink, how they live together, how they raise their babies and how people interact with horses. "On Sharing a Book," a two page section in the back, instructs adults in ways to use this book as a learning tool. Also contains a glossary with definitions, a table of contents and an index. Part of the "Early Bird Nature Books" series. 2001, Lerner, $22.60. Ages 5 to 8. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer
