“Horses and Ponies”
I like this book because the illustrations are beautiful and the pictures look very real. I like the facts because they are on each page and I always read them when I turn a page. I like the pictures on the page where it says Keeping clean because the picture of the horse rolling on the grass. IT'S SO CUTE.
“My daughter loves this”
This is currently my daughter's favorite book. So many horses! Doing such interesting things! It's beautifully presented and contains some facts that are actually quite interesting for adults too.
