Reviews for Racing Horses


School Library Journal Reviews 2011 April

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.
