Did you know that there is a big difference between a pony and a miniature horse? Readers will learn all about these differences as well as just what makes these diminutive horses so special. Detailed photographs show the many unique features of miniature horses and how they their larger relatives. These horses have been used in mines, as show horses, and even as guides for the blind. Readers will also learn why miniature horses make great pets and how to care for them.
Gr 2-5-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. (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
