Kindergarten-Grade 3–Simon provides the basic facts, which include the importance of horses to humans throughout history, their evolution, physical traits, interactions among themselves, and the various breeds. The information is clear and accurate. The striking color photos will capture readers attention. However, its unfortunate that they lack captions, particularly when showing different breeds. Children will pore over the photos and garner enough information from the text to make this book a popular introductory choice.–Carol Schene, Taunton Public Schools, MA

Gr. 2-4. Simon, whose award-winning books have covered the spectrum from vehicles to weather to the human body, turns his attention to an animal whose history has been linked to that of human beings for "tens of thousands of years." As is usual in Simon's recent science books, photographs, carefully keyed to the text, draw readers in. Though the photos of horses in motion are less effective in showing how the animal moves than a diagram might have been, some of the other pictures are nothing short of spectacular, especially one of a pair of jumpers, photographed from below as they clear a fence at twilight. Comprehensive? No. Rather, Simon has pulled together a variety of information to give children a concise but memorable, even dignified picture of the magnificent beast and how its relationship to humankind has evolved and changed.

One of the things I liked most about this book were the pictures. They showed all different types of horses. One really cute picture was of one horse kissing another horse. A bizarre picture was one of a horse smiling with disgusting teeth!
I really enjoyed reading this book because it gave me lots of information about horses. I would recommend it to someone who wants a horse, has a horse, or just wantes to learn more about horses. So read this book and you will learn so much more!
