K-Gr 4—Brief texts offer plenty of information to help novices understand how to show, ride, train, and care for horses. On each chapter spread, one page of text faces a large, bright, color photograph. The dark brown font is large and rests on a light tan background. Sentences are short and clear, and words in a brightly colored font are defined in a "Horse Dictionary." Text boxes and photo captions clarify concepts and offer information without interfering with the flow of the text. Though "What to Wear" sections advise riders to wear helmets, one image in Showing features a girl riding without one. These fine titles should appeal to the youngest animal lovers.
