One would be hard pressed to think of an animal that enjoys more popularity than horses. Consider the parts they have played not only in our country's history but also throughout literature. Children admire them and can imagine all sorts of adventures on horseback. Gail Gibbons has brought her usual perception and skills to this entertaining book about one of our favorite animals. Noting that the horse's earliest ancestors lived almost 60 million years ago the author traces the migration of horses and their domestication. We're reminded of how useful they were: plowing, pulling wagons and carts, transporting people. Included is an examination of this animal's anatomy as well as notes on purebred horses from the Arabian to the Palomino to the Clydesdale. 'Horses' is both entertaining and informative for all ages.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
