"The Horse Play! activity book by Deanna Cook and Katie Craig is full of creative ideas -- from crafting to cooking -- for horse-loving kids to do around the house this summer." -- Cool Mom Picks
"After my 10-year-old and her little sister finished this [horse pillow] project, I didn't hear a peep out of them for another hour at least. They were busying themselves with the Horseplay! book -- coloring a poster that was included, reading facts about horses, planning parties (the book includes super-cute cupcake toppers and suggestions for horse-themed parties). It really is a great book for kids her age." -- Baby Center
"Cook and Craig fill this interactive activity book with equine facts, games, book recommendations, and trivia, as well as a handful of details about riding and interacting with real-life horses. Horse-related craft projects include making a sock hobbyhorse, horseshoe wall art, and a barn for model horses made from a cardboard box. A party-themed chapter provides suggestions for food to serve, horse-themed movies, and a punch-out card game (stickers and other party goodies, such as cupcake toppers, are included as well). Whether readers are experienced riders or equestrians in the making, they should find easy inspiration for both solo projects and group fun." -- Publisher's Weekly
