Children's LiteratureDid you know wild horses do not see well close up and to compensate for this sensory loss, they have developed a sense of smell to find their favorite grasses? Or horses can sleep lying down or standing up? Did you know horses can lock their legs so they can relax without falling over? This nonfiction book, part of the "Our Wild World" series, will teach children about wild horses. Blue and gray boxes with highlighted fun facts give the young reader a chance to learn about wild horses just from a quick browse through the book. A handy listing of internet websites listed at the back of the book will be helpful for students writing reports on wild horses. Beautiful illustrations of wild horses running on beaches, eating prairie grasses, and traveling in bachelor herds establish this text as a must have for school library shelves. The book is perfect for any fourth or fifth grade science curriculum or report on wild horses. 2004, NorthWord Press, Ages 8 to 12.
