Horses & Ponies – Sheila Perkins

Horses & Ponies – Sheila Perkins

If you have a horse mad child like I do, then this is an amazing book for the eager reader.
It has large print, with only a paragraph or two of text on each page and lots of great photographs. Any potentially difficult words are in red bold, to show that they have been included in the glossary at the back of the book.
The book itself talks about different breeds, different parts, the work required to look after a horse well, and what sort of work we often get them to do.
It is in-depth enough that an older reader won’t feel as though they are reading a “baby book”, so could be a really good option for older reluctant readers, but equally it is a nice option for reading together time as well.
