Album of Horses by Marguerite Henry ~ Review

Album of Horses by Marguerite Henry is a wonderful introduction to different horse breeds.

  • Morgan.
  • American Saddle Horse.
  • Tennessee Walking Horse.
  • Hackney.
  • Percheron.
  • Belgian.
  • Clydesdale.
  • Lipizzan.
  • Mustang.
  • Appaloosa.
  • Quarter Horse.
  • Palomino.
  • Shetland pony.
  • Donkey.
  • Mule.

There are also chapters on building routines and habits to guide a horse’s actions and helpful tips for horse owners.

Lavishly illustrated by Wesley Dennis, Album of Horses is one of those books your children will love, whether they are into horses or not.
