Overview

For young horse lovers who can't get enough pictures of horses and ponies, we've created The Horse Breeds Poster Book, a gorgeous gallery of 30 pull-out horse posters, enough posters to wallpaper a kid's room. Young riders love pictures of adorable foals, big draft horses, sleek race horses, and tiny ponies and that's what this book delivers.

For this special collection, international horse photographer Bob Langrish has chosen his most kid-appealing images. On the back of each poster is a panel that describes the particular breed shown: where it comes from, what it's good at, how it likes to be handled, and a lot more. Fun facts will turn readers into experts. They'll learn, for instance, that little Shetland ponies are, pound for pound, the strongest horses of all. And that Belgian draft horses once carried knights into battle. And that Quarter Horses can outrace Thoroughbreds over short distances.

We're confident this book will be a hit with kids. Why? Because we called in young horse lovers to serve as consultants on this project. While the official target age for this book is 8 to 12, the subject and the beauty of the photographs will draw in younger and older horse lovers as well. A glossary defines horsey terms in language kids can understand, making The Horse Breeds Poster Book informative as well as beautiful

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Although this book consists of thirty 9 inch x 12 inch horse posters that can be removed and hung in any horse-lover's room, it can also be read and enjoyed as a traditional book and a useful introduction to horse breeds. On the backside of each poster is a one-page introduction to a particular horse breed, including its history, national origin, common uses, and characteristics. These facts are easy and enjoyable to browse through; unfortunately, though, the book won't stand up to repeated readings, since the posters are also designed to pull out easily. The posters themselves are lovely color photographs that will appeal to most horse lovers. From striking close-ups to panoramic landscapes showcasing groups of horses to exciting action shots of horses racing and jumping, the posters show each breed to its best advantage and provide a wide variety. 2003, Storey Publishing, Ages 8 to 12.

    Educational and Desirable

    Kids will love this book of adorable horses on posters, but at the same time learn, because there is abundant information on the backs of the posters about the breeds, and a helpful glossary in 'kid language'.
