Another beautiful account of Ted & Betsy Lewin's travels around the world, this time to Mongolia for the Nadaam Festival. The illustrations tell the story as much as the text and does an amazing job depicting the lives of the children jockeys.

I enjoyed this look into life in Mongolia. Their way of live is so different from mine and it is exciting to learn about other cultures.Curricular Connections:Explore the differences between horse racing in Mongolia and other cultures.

This definitely covered an aspect of life that I was unaware of! The illustrations are quite majestic in scope; they give a grandness and sense of history to the story. I learned quite a bit about Mongolian culture which I have been woefully ignorant of. Good book!

Ted and Betsy Lewin bring readers along for the ride on their trip to Mongolia to watch the horse races of Naadam, a cultural festival in Mongolia. Child riders race half-wild horses across the desert sands in this annual celebration that brings isolated Mongolian nomads together to celebrate their heritage. The illustrations are phenomenal. Detailed paintings bring the reader inside family dwellings and into the middle of the races while smaller cartoon-ish drawings lighten the mood. I really enjoyed my journey with the Lewins!

The authors/artists have traveled to Mongolia to see a horse race where all the riders are children. Expressive and beautiful illustrations and brief text bring the event to life for American readers. There are touches of humor that may be lost on the youngest readers, but what an inspired way to transport us to this relatively little-known part of the world! I would give this to 7-10 year olds.
