Does your child love horses? We’re starting a week of looking at books about horses, one of our current interests! Horses, by Monica Kulling, is a shape book that introduces children to the world of horses. The birth of a baby horse, a foal, starts the reader on a journey to learn more about horses and the world in which they live. The illustrations by Betina Ogden are beautiful pictures that invite the reader to study and examine each detail of a horse’s life. We enjoyed learning about the grooming and care of horses. Vocabulary is introduced throughout the story in a way that encourages readers to use the text to determine meaning. If your child is interested in horses, this is a great book to introduce them to various kinds of horses and the vocabulary used in talking about horses. Enjoy!
