Horsing Around
Beautiful, majestic, awe inspiring—all of these words describe a horse as it gallops freely and powerfully across a field. For both their beauty and their helpfulness to humans over the years, horses hold a special place in people’s hearts. They’ve long been a part of our transportation, agriculture, and entertainment. Some horses are even kept as beloved pets. Colorful photographs accompany the text and show these horses at their best. * High-interest topic and accessible vocabulary for young readers * Graphic elements help organize information * Fact boxes offer fun details * Table of Contents, Glossary, and Index guide readers in navigating each book * Suggested reading and Web sites lead horse lovers to additional information

Collection Review: Horsing Around
"Horse lovers will delight in these information-packed volumes. Short chapters are paired with photographs of horses; reproductions of historical paintings or carvings; or, as in Horses in History, photos of scientists working with fossils. The writing is clear and easy to follow, and topic-specific charts provide additional information, such as on the races of the Triple Crown. While the suggestions for further reading are mainly informative, the annotated website listing offers resources that are often games or fun sites. Essential for libraries with horse fans; a solid purchase for others."
