Perkins, Sheila. Horses and Ponies. (Level 3 Reader) Scholastic, 2016. $3.99. ISBN 978-0-545-88959-9. 31 pages. Ages 5-9. P7Q8
This is a level three reader that is sure to delight not only your horse and pony lovers but students who are interested in animals in general. This book is replete with facts and trivia about such behavior as horse laughs, that people have been using horses for more than 5,000 years, and horses have lifespans between twenty and thirty years. Some text is bolded in red to highlight vocabulary that can be found in the glossary. Featuring lovely full-color photos and rudimentary information on habitat and behavior, this book is an introduction to these animals that you will not want to miss. Glossary included.
