My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy from Callisto Publishers. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Horses! is a book for children 4-8 years old. It not only has activities and many opportunities to color, but most pages have an interesting tidbit about horses. For example, on one coloring page of a horse that won the Kentucky Derby: “The Kentucky Derby is a famous horse race. It’s also called the Run for the Roses because the winner gets a blanket made of red roses!”

This activity and coloring book can be a source of hours of fun for children and they might even learn something while they’re having fun.
